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 draw the forces and the divine love towards you. The method is bad. Give yourself without calculating and without expecting anything in return, and then you will become capable of receiving.
Q: How can we know that we are receptive?
Mother: When we feel the urge to give and the joy of giving to the Divine’s work, then we can be sure that we have become receptive.

To be receptive
To be receptive is to feel the urge to give and the joy of giving to the Divine’s Work all one has, all one is, all one does.
