As difficult as our present set of circumstances are, as much as we’re all worried about money and security and our long-term outlook, we actually have a remarkable opportunity at present to go ahead and — are you ready for this? — lean into and let ourselves encounter that empty feeling.

Intuitively, we grasp that we haven’t completely experienced love. This leads us into a headlong confrontation with our inner chasm, with that profound sense of emptiness.

Try to get really clear on what it would take to free yourself from dead weights that are cheap substitutes for love, but deep down we know are a far cry from the real thing. How can you expand in ways that allow you to open yourself up to love?

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
