It’s a beautiful question. What does this longing for oneness really have its basis in? Is it based in fear? It is not based in fear. It’s based in love, the opposite of fear. We long to commune because it’s our inherent nature, at the depth of our being, to love.
Our fear is what prevents us from functioning from that place. We may fear that if we show our vulnerability, we’ll look like a fool. So we create a facade, an overlay. But as the psyche heals, we integrate all the different levels of our being so that we function harmoniously with our vulnerability in a fulfilling manner that is unique to each individual. Then our vulnerability naturally interfaces with what’s occurring on the surface of our life.
