Openness

“Openness is not a matter of giving something to someone else, but it means giving up your demand and the basic criteria of the demand. (…) It is learning to trust in the fact that you do not need to secure your ground, learning to trust in your fundamental richness, that you can afford to be open.” “So the main theme of the open way is that we must begin to abandon the basic struggle of ego. To be completely open, to have that kind of absolute trust in yourself is the real meaning of compassion and love.”
