The Wisdom of Reception

In a nutshell

Two forces; giving and receiving

The wisdom of reception explains that there are two forces, the force of bestowal (love) that created the created being and the force of reception, the opposite, the created being itself. They are like a cup and the filling, feminine and masculine. We, humanity, are the cup, which needs to be filled and this desire makes us do all kinds of things to fill the empty feeling inside. This desire is our engine. The only reason we feel emptiness and darkness in our life is because we are confused and think we can fill it with material things but this filling is always temporary. This cup can only be filled with the light of love because nothing can substitute love itself. 

Overcoming the gap between giving and receiving

So because we are complete opposite to the force of love, we have to overcome the gap between receiving and giving. Because the moment we become love then we are like the force of bestowal, and we will feel whole again. This means that no thing and no other person can fulfill us, only love itself. So only if we can give love, to love others, to love our lives and everything in it, no matter how bad it seems then we can feel whole again. If we can accept the darkness and agree with everything in this world, then and only then, when there is nothing left that I do not love, then the cup is filled. 

Discovering our egoistic nature is key for correcting it 

In speech it is simple but in attainment it is the most difficult thing to do, because we are the will to receive by nature. We have to put all our effort in if we want to succeed. And we will succeed, this is our destiny. But we can accelerate the path towards fulfillment. We can do that by consciously trying to “correct” our egoistic desires into bestowal. By trying we will become aware of us being opposite to love, and that will give us a desire for change. Then we will have the right desire to receive. The desire to change our nature into bestowal and love and that is all we need. 

We don’t have to do it alone

This path will take time because we cannot correct our whole egoism at once, we can only do one bit at a time. Therefore every time, over and over again we will see that we still have some egoism left and we cannot stop improving ourselves yet. But every little bit counts and will become a big desire that eventually will be complete. And most importantly we don’t have to do it alone, we do it together. We cannot correct the whole world by ourselves and we don’t have to. More and more people will become aware that fulfillment doesn’t come from corporeal stuff and that will lead them to the spiritual path. At first from the desire to fulfill themselves and along the way, by understanding more and more, to gain a desire to fulfill others, a desire for bestowal.

The end of correction

Imagine the world we live in when everyone starts wanting to fulfill others. This will inevitably lead to the end of correction, the complete correction and fulfillment of every person and every living being in the world. By keeping this goal in mind, and make it the most important thing in our lives we all will accelerate on the path.
