Ask. Allow. Receive.

Posted on August 20, 2013. Filed under: Spiritual Practice | Tags: , , , , , |

ask allow receiveAsk.  Allow.  Receive.  The trinity of our life process.  How well we utilize this trinity varies as we move forward in life – and we are always moving forward.

Ask.  Life gives us a myriad of opportunity to play with variety, to decide what we like and what we don’t like .  Yet it’s all good, and we need not declare anything wrong or bad or even evil to decide that it’s not for us.  We can simply apply our focus elsewhere.

Allow.  Life is big enough to accommodate all possibilities.  Life is big enough to grant us every one of our heart’s desires without taking anything from anyone else.  Once we’ve decided what we want, our job is done.  It’s up to the Universe to orchestrate the circumstances through which to deliver our desire.  Our “work” is to allow, to trust, to surrender the need to “make it happen.”

Receive.  This last step would seem to be an easy one, wouldn’t it?  If I’ve asked for something, why wouldn’t I want to receive it?  The answer to that is as varied as the individual.  Receiving seems to have been given a bad wrap – labeling those who receive openly as selfish, demanding, controlling or even manipulative.  Receiving is different from taking.  Receiving is a passive act whereas taking is an aggressive one.

Ask.  Allow.  Receive.  As we practice this process deliberately, we open ourselves to ever greater possibilities.  How comfortable are you with this process?
