Like a rainbow

With your heart open, look carefully at the ways you habitually place others’ needs over your own… not out of genuine compassion for them, but as a re-enactment of an early environment of shame and unworthiness.

It is in this seeing that the seeds are planted for a new way, one that is encoded with attunement, creativity, and a wild sort of kindness.

Out of these qualities, the seemingly solid distinction between self and other will reveal itself to be quite translucent.

Like a rainbow.
