To open yourself up to need,
longing, dependency, and reliance on others means opening yourself to the truth
that none of us can do this on our own. We really do need each other, just as we
need parents and teachers. We need all those people in our lives who make us
feel so uncertain. Our practice is not about finally getting to a place where we
are going to escape all that but about creating a container that allows us to be
more and more human, to feel more and more.
