Do you know the secret to Greatness?
Mastery comes from being humble and receptive, from opening to greater possibilities.
Humility is a softening. To me it is so comforting because I acknowledge that I am not alone. To be humble is to accept the unseen support that is always there; to honor and co-participate with the organizing energy of life.
To clarify, being receptive is not necessarily being passive. It is an opening both passive and active, depending on what is appropriate for each moment or situation. Sometimes you have to summon courage to stay open in the face of challenge, but by trusting the universe and flowing with your intuition, somehow it all works out perfectly.
Through humility you attune to the guiding force of grace. By riding these energetic currents, you evolve and rise to the magnificence that is your true nature.
Mini-Meditation: Soften and Receive
Adjust your posture so you are sitting tall and comfortably
Settle into your sit bones and let your hips be heavy
Connect to the expansive, nurturing planet beneath you
Become more spacious, and open to your breath
Rise up through the river of light that is your spine
Shine the light of your heart out through your skin
Lean back a bit, coming into your back body
Open to the universal aspect of yourself, filling your back with breath
Without collapsing your posture at all, soften
Soften your skin, and feel beyond your physical boundaries
Feel yourself be breathed
Attune to the pulse of life, the Om that vibrates in all things
In this humble receptivity, offer a prayer in whatever way feels best for you
Remaining open, allow the many blessings of spirit to add to your light
Breathe in the luminosity of this sensitivity
When you are ready to finish, invite the feeling of humility to remain, and be open to the revelations of greatness!
I bow to your light, and the one radiance that brightens us all,
