The radical act of befriending

The process of reorganizing perception, opening the heart, and staying open to the many ways we can fall back into self-deception is not a one-time deal that involves only a part of ourselves, but is ongoing and must penetrate the entire spectrum of our psychic bodies, including physical, emotional, mental, subtle, and spiritual.

In ways that are contradictory and bewildering to the one seeking control and the maintenance of the status quo, the radical act of befriending all parts of ourselves is what makes true healing possible.

It is important to realize and respect how revolutionary this is, this journey to reverse years, decades, and perhaps even lifetimes of habitual, conditioned patterning and reveal the golden world.
