God is saying: Listen to every impulse. Go give it a whirl.
This is the opposite of resisting. How many times has God said that? How many times have I heard that, and yet I have resisted some impulses over and over again. I have turned them away.
I recently wrote three blogs about learning to receive, and here I have been turning away ideas that come to me! It would seem that I have not learned to receive in all the ways I might. Whether anything really comes of the ideas doesn't matter. What matters is being open to receiving them, and as God has said, giving it a whirl.
I have had some ideas for short stories, and when these ideas would come, I would turn them away. I suppose my thinking was: "I am a Godwriter now."
An Almighty Godwriter? Was my mind implying that I'm too good to write short stories?
I have always considered myself as someone who is open, but now I don't know how open I have really been. I have been open to what I think I ought to be open to OR, when the desire is so strong, and there is no resisting it -- then I don't resist it. Such as moving to Argentina.
So this morning, the morning I am writing this, I said to myself: Okay, today I am really going to be open.
Along with my new intent to be open to writing ideas, so far this morning (the morning that I actually write this, which was yesterday -- I have put three or four new blogs together, including this one. That's being open. I didn't push the ideas away.
One of the blog ideas that came to me has the title: If I were a stand-up comedian... Ideas to put under this topic keep popping up, and I write them in. If I had not written the title I did and made space for it, would those ideas have come? I don't think so.
On the other hand -- must there always be an On the other hand -- I have been interrupted from settling down to receiving today's Heavenletter!!!! Oh, no!
I'd better stop now and receive a Heavenletter.
So, ideas, hold off for a little while now, okay?
Along with that, if you have any ideas for blogs you'd like to read, please post your ideas under this blog entry, and I'll give them a whirl!
