The thing about opening to me is that old boundaries, filters and questionable ways of coping that leave us stuck fall away. In that there is the formless and in that place there is openness and vulnerability. Inevitably we are affected by what what we bring to our lives and relationships. In that openness, vulnerability arises as there is no place to stand. Ultimately we have to be ready to confront this if we are to open to what is real and changing of us.Discomfort is an aspect of it, but all the sublime qualities are as well.
