Excerpt About Openness
Receptivity to ExperienceOpenness is one of the main ways we experience the inherent mystery of our nature, the essence of true nature. The free, spacious, infinite, unencumbered lightness of our nature appears in the experience of the soul as an openness. The experience is literally a lightness, a spaciousness, a freedom, but psychologically it is an openness. Literally, phenomenologically, it is like space; psychologically, it is openness to possibilities. So openness means a receptivity to experience – whatever presents itself, whatever arises in our consciousness. We do not say that we want to experience this but not that; whatever arises is welcome, is allowed.
