The Five Aspects of Dharma Life - Spiritual Receptivity

by Subhuti (2013)

Fifth talk of a series of 8 talks and one session of Questions and Answers by Subhuti on the System of Practice retreat at Padmaloka for men who have asked for Ordination. In these talks, Subhuti delves into the fundamental principles behind Integration, Positive Emotion, Spiritual Receptivity, Spiritual Death, and Spiritual Rebirth, finding in each new and deeper significance. He invites his hearers to apply them deeply in their own lives.

6. Spiritual Receptivity: As we make an effort to cultivate skilful karma, we ourselves are transformed and we develop a new and more sensitive responsiveness to value. This sensitivity is not merely passive or reflective: it has what might be called an 'erotic force'.

This talk is part of the series The Five Aspects of the Dharma Life.
