The only reason we don’t open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don’t feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes. Pema Chödron
This quote tells me I still have much work to do.
Who can I not open my heart and mind to?
Why the triggering confusion?
What is my fear?
How do I address that fear in myself?
Can I then feel confident about looking into their eyes?
