In the moment when you are completely present your heart becomes available and vulnerability shows up. Your heart has been in hiding for a long time and now you are learning to bring it forward in the world because you know that is what is called for.

In this state of vulnerability we see you and you see the world and then we know we are connected as one.

For it is in the opening of our hearts together that we create community.  Even in the briefest moment when you are present to me and me to you there is a knowing that we are intended to be together in this community on planet earth.

Any fear we had of hiding behind the wall built up over the years melts away in the moment of compassionate embrace.

The knowing you bring as to who I am is mirrored back to you.

Then we have a place to meet with respect, honor, knowing and compassion.

That is the gift you bring.
