“I will receive whatever I request.”
Today’s lesson concludes by saying:
It is a day in which I would do nothing by myself, but hear Your Voice in everything I do; requesting only what You offer me, accepting only Thoughts You share with me. (W-pII.339.2:1-3)
The word “request” indicates a conscious choice, a consciously chosen direction of focus. Your focus is on the creative qualities of source that extend as and through you. By requesting “only what You offer me” you show that you have decided to zoom in on that dynamic exclusively. Then only those creative qualities will be extended, the reflection of which will return to you in the images you see in the world.
The word “receive” indicates just that: through your immersion in what source offers you, you feel the presence of that inwardly, and through the workings of the mind you experience the presence of it outwardly.
