A Quote by John Welwood on john welwood, perfect love, love, fear, wounding, and mistrust

The more two people open to each other, the more this wide-openness also brings to the surface all the obstacles to it:  their deepest, darkest wounds, their desperation and mistrust, and their rawest emotional trigger points.  Just as the sun's warmth causes clouds to arise by prompting the earth to release its moisture, so love's pure openness activates the thick clouds of our emotional wounding, the tight places where we are shut down, where we live in fear and resist love.
