To whatever degree we have not metabolized unmet feelings of abandonment, loneliness, shame, and rage, we can count on our fellow travelers to offer this opportunity to us in a seemingly endless number of ways. This can be excruciating, but we might come to see this invitation as the unique gift of the relational field, a provocative summons into the very charged crucible of intimacy, openness, aliveness, and healing.
May we make the revolutionary commitment to offering a true holding environment – for ourselves, our lovers, and our fellow travelers – and above all else to practicing a wild and uncompromising kindness as we walk the path of the heart together. When in doubt, be kind, to yourself and the others that mysteriously come into and out of your life. For it is a radical and astonishing path, this journey of intimacy, that will demand everything from us, but offers fruit that is worthy of our deepest gratitude and awe.
