Opening is a release of
the consciousness by which it begins to admit into itself the workings of the
Divine Light and Power.
Open to the
consciousness which is working on and in you and keep always as quiet and
peaceful as you can.
I pray that I may serve you consciously and sincerely, without the
least encroachment or hampering by the ego, and be inspired by you in everything.
Open yourself more and more to the
Consciousness and you will receive inspiration.

open more to love and to the light.” This is
exactly the answer I send to your last letter. Rise higher in the
consciousness, love more widely, open to the light — and all divergences will
disappear. You must be as vast and comprehensive as the world to do the Yoga.

Opening: the help is

Integral opening of the

Widen yourself to the
extreme limit of the universe... and beyond.
Always take upon
yourself all the necessities of progress, and resolve them in the ecstasy of
Unity. Then you will be divine.

Be receptive ― it is there.
Try to be satisfied with
what you receive ― for it is a matter of receptivity, because ― you can believe me ― I give always much more than what the people are capable of
receiving ― and in two or three minutes they could have quite enough to go

whole thing is spoiled.

My love is always with
you; if then you do not feel it, it is because you are not capable of receiving
it. It is your receptivity that is lacking and should be increased; for this
you must open yourself, and one opens oneself only if one gives oneself. Surely you are trying more or less consciously to
