Receptivity is not a passive state. Nor is it a blank, empty waiting around for whatever happens to come along. I don't mean you should become a lazy do-nothing, reacting blindly to whatever life throws in front of you.
Receptivity is a robust readiness to be surprised and moved; a vigorous intention to be awake to everything you can't control. You have strong ideas and a powerful will, but you're also animated by the humble certainty that you have a lot to learn.
