Hello, hello. You’ve heard from me in private, but let me speak up out here, so all can know how floored I am with your progress and discovery in this month!
I wrote to you this morning about reading your accounts of the water – I said I had found my own self short of breath.
Isn’t that what it’s like, though? Learning another person IS like not breathing – not breathing the usual breath of our own personality. I never thought of it that way but wow, and yeah, you’re right.
Well, Beth, what can we do? How can we hold onto ourselves and do this, or how can we learn to know we’ll stay alive even if we change our way breathing for a while?
I’ve been trying to put into play the exercise I set you, and I can’t say I’m going nearly as far! But for anybody’s information, I’ve been having two reactions when I try to “Be” the person I’m with – one is that I just get really quiet and resist nothing that they are saying or want to do, and the other is that I feel very warmly for them and just want to give them a hug. Both experiences have been pleasant.
That’s all from me. Take care folks!
