Receiving is good. To learn to be a good receiver is to learn a useful skill. There is, however, for many, a bump on the receiver road.
When someone offers you something —- you may think, in order to be a good receiver, you should accept whatever is offered. You may have been taught it is not “nice” to turn down a gift. Or you may believe that if you say “no”, you will be cutting off some future flow of abundance. But what if that which is offered is something you don’t want? Don’t need? What to do then?
You can receive the gift of having had something offered to you. Read that again…. And again.
Receiving is not a black-and-white; yes-or-no thing. Each time you are offered a gift or opportunity, you want to be able to enjoy the fact that the offering was made. Enjoy the offer. Then you are free to choose whether or not to receive that which is offered. If it is right for you, receive it. If it’s not, don’t
Be open to always enjoying receiving the offer.
I am certainly not turning down the cup of coffee Loren is handing me…. Yep, I am a good receiver…. But let’s say he would have brought me a glass of milk, I’d appreciate the offer… but turn down the gift… since I really do not like milk.
Go practice today… appreciating the offer….
