I wanted to share with you a book that I have been reading called Broken Open, by Elizabeth Lesser. I highly recommend it and specifically love the chapter called, Open Secret. There’s a great quote from Rumi that Lesser puts in there that I think we can all connect to:
“Learn the alchemy true human beings know. The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given, the door will open.” – Rumi
This whole chapter focuses on how we tend to be so afraid to connect with one another and often times keep hidden secrets from each other. These hidden secrets can inhibit us from really connecting and creating meaningful relationships.
But the reality is, we all have secrets, and if we could begin to learn to connect and realize you’re not alone in this journey, and be truly vulnerable, you will find the deeper connections and love you are looking for.
What secrets might you be keeping that is inhibiting you from creating the meaningful connections that we all desire to have?
Live. Love. Thrive.
