Simply To Witness

Beholding establishes a sacred relationship… To behold is not to fix, change, judge, or even want. It is simply to witness — to embrace with our awareness. In beholding the self, we witness a miraculous manifestation of divine energy living right inside us, with all its hopes and fears, joys and tears. This witnessing is the “heart to heart.” It brings us to the sacred. It is the essential realization that must be present for any real healing to occur.
