“Receptive time” is a legacy different than “ordinary time.” In our dialogue, Mother Mary called it “an ancient art.”
She and I spoke of it in one of our early dialogues:
“You awaken from a dreamless, intermittent sleep and return to the cabin to be with me, recognizing a receptive time when it is with you. You recognize when time is with you in a way “other than” that of ordinary time. You have long been thus and are well practiced in this ancient art that so few recognize.” 36
Writing is where I feel most compelled to be true to myself because it arises from a place within me where being true is all I can be. Each of us have a place, or a space, an inner chamber, where this is so. Each of us have secure inner rooms from which we will create The New.
This has been a potent time of discovery and rediscovery for many of us. A time of finding that openness that has no location yet takes us in a new direction.
You might not think of these moments as “receptive” or even less as “receptive time.” But as you and I realize that time is “different,” we will concede that it is dawning first “within.” Dawn will stand at the intersection of giving and receiving . She will offer an unexpected turn. Bewilderment may arise. At such times, source unknown, you ask:
A beautiful analogy to coming to know and feel passion in those moments certainly when the human meets the divine
It feels to me that we all have fragments of an ” unknown teaching “.
Claudia, thanks for commenting. I’m glad to hear how you “feel” about the way the unknown comes to you. With Love, Mari
Hi Brett, I like your addition of the word passion to these moments. Thank you!
