Loving ourselves opens us to truly knowing ourselves as part of a matrix of existence, inextricably connected to the boundlessness of life. When we keep opening past any version of who we are that is crafted by others, when we see that we are far bigger than the person that is dileneated by family or cultural expectations, we realize that we are capable of so much more than we usually dare to imagine. In the spirit the poet Walt Whitman wrote, "I am larger, better than I thought;/I did not know I held so much goodness."
Force of Kindness, Sharon Salzbeg
