We are all substantially flawed, wounded, angry, hurt, here on Earth. But this human condition, so painful to us, and in some ways shameful – because we feel we are weak when the reality of ourselves is exposed – is made much more bearable when it is shared, face-to face, in words that have expressive human eyes behind them.
— Alice Walker
What is that you express in your eyes?
It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.
— Walt Whitman
If you’ve been on this list long enough you might notice the occasional re-using of a quote sent previously. Generally, that means it’s a quote I really like. The quote by Alice Walker is a prime example of that. For me I feel it just says so much of what it’s all about.
We are flawed, wounded, and in pain. When we come together, it makes the pain more bearable. And when we really connect, really see each other, there is a world of energetic expression and exchange that comes through the eyes. So often the very thing we long for and the thing we fear most are one in the same: to really be seen, and embraced as who we are.
The Ubuntu group is this coming Friday. Hope to “see you” then. RSVPs are not required, yet, always appreciated : )

We have been doing the Ubuntu group since the very beginning (2004). Held on the 3rd Friday of every month, it is a time to connect with one another in an authentic way about whatever is happening in life, to share from the deeper self, from our most known truth. For more information, visit http://livingubuntu.org/events or call (949) 891-2005.
Every human being truly becomes a human by means of relationships with other human beings.
