“Create a connection. The borders you’ve drawn between you and the rest of the world are no longer there. Allow the illusion of separateness to be lifted from your eyes, and with it, the belief that you are in control of what happens. Surrender. Declare your faith. Let the fearful thing that runs roughshod over your expectations clear a path through which your growing compassion can freely move. And then, in your flowing freehand, write new lines that expand their own edges and become open channels for drawing the abandoned parts together.”
