A Quote by zaadzster on the great circle, openness, and prayer

May my feet rest firmly on the ground
May my head touch the sky
May I see clearly
May I have the capacity of listen
May I be free to touch
May my words be true
May my heart and mind be open
May my hands be empty to fill the need 
May my arms be open to others
May my gifts be revealed to me
So that I may return that which has been given
Completing the great circle.

A Quote by John Welwood on perfect love, welwood, love, openness, and heart

I would define love very simply: as a potent blend of openness and warmth, which allows us to make real contact, to take delight in and appreciate, and to be at one with----our selves, others, and life itself. Openness----the heart's pure, unconditional yes----is love's essence. And warmth is love's basic expression, arising as a natural extension of this yes----the desire to reach out and touch, connect with, and nourish what we love.

A Quote by Audre Lorde on courage, fear, silence, and openness

What are the words you do not yet have? What do you need to say? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence?

Audre Lorde
