LOVE and Light energy from Roland Comtois

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of connection and the path to the feeling of worthiness. If it doesn’t feel vulnerable, the sharing is probably not constructive.”

Brene Brown, from her facebook page

Intimacy requires vulnerability, and it is sometimes more comfortable to relate to others from a safe distance than to bare our souls. LOVE allows intimacy, but it also requires vulnerability. To tell someone we LOVE them is to bare our soul. That is because LOVING is a soul-level function.

Our society in America values individualism and the strong individualist. So many in America have had to sacrifice everything to get ahead. Other cultures, including Native American ones, value the circle, the hoop, the whole above the individual. Sharing and give-aways are honored. When there is a feast, all are welcome. When there is famine, all are equally hungry. When we are taught that it’s every person for themselves, we are less likely to wish to show or share our vulnerability.

So how do we learn to connect with others from a place of honesty, LOVE, and vulnerability? The only way to learn is to try it. If we realize that LOVE is the best way to relate, at all times, we can begin to come from a place of LOVE and see if it feels better or worse. Perhaps it will feel better than all the years of relating from a safe distance. Perhaps it will lead to not only greater intimacy, but greater connectedness and greater acceptance of ourselves and others.

“God, it is scary to let down the barriers I have erected to keep myself safe.  Help me trust you and trust LOVE and allow myself to be vulnerable with people around me. Help me let them know another side of me, and help us LOVE each other more. Thank you, God. I love you.”
