“Do not help anyone without first asking their permission, and do not expect to be helped without asking.”
The best gift in my life is my life. The second best is you witnessing it.
We have a built-in camera that records exactly what we see but translating our pictures into words has always been a technological challenge. We all see the same thing but translate it differently.
We can’t always explain ourselves to ourselves let alone explain ourselves to anyone else.
We are desperately hoping our parents, family and friends will acknowledge us, but they too are busy looking for someone else to witness their life. Imagine what would happen if you and everyone else stopped looking to others and started to acknowledge your own life.
If you were aware that every life form you have ever encountered was actually in communication with you would you ever feel lonely?
You can save a life just by listening to someone who needs your ear.
If you want to see someone’s secret garden, ask to see it. If you are given permission, be willing to journey through the obstacles to see it. Then be open and share your own secret garden with them.
When you feel disconnected you are subject to the “human condition” and all you can give or receive is “conditional.” When you feel connected everything is unconditional and then you are simply a “human” without the condition.
Intimacy is about being free to say what you need to say, when you need to say it, the way you know how to say it, in the way it was meant to be said and as if nothing else is left to be said.
