What we offer each other is our truth, which includes all of our “stuff.” We have to allow ourselves to risk being human. The way to the truth is through acknowledging the fullness of where we find ourselves to be, which is through our humanity and our divinity.
“As I started to allow myself to be human more, just allowed what I am – things changed must faster in me. Things fell away more quickly. And once I just allowed that I am human with all the foibles, things started to flow and I could feel change occurring in myself. And then I would start to experience my own beauty. And the idea that I just am… that what is – when you look at a tree or a rock or a river, it is in its own way beautiful.” – Ram Dass
