Remember that if you wall up your house too well you will stay dry, but you will stay moonless. We should strive to let the world into our lives, let love into our lives, let other people into our lives and let the night of risk and vulnerability into our lives. Our knowing and our fear keep out the moonlight. By letting the moonlight into our ruined house, we let in tenderness, courage and healing. ~ Joan Halifax. ‘Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet.
