Truth: many people among us already practice deep resilience. The grounded, raw day-to-day of people has as much to teach us as any textbook or intellectual treatise.
Learning to love is an act of faith and vulnerability. Learning to receive love and give love is the greatest achievement any of us could achieve.
If we can’t come as we are and if we can’t bring our “real” then we are not co-creators of faith.
Faith requires us to be wide open and it is hard to do that with shields up.
