Intimacy & Integrity

“Intimacy begins with oneself. It does no good to try to find intimacy with friends, lovers, and family if you are starting out from alienation and division within yourself.”
(Thomas Moore)

The biggest mistake we make in relationships is seeking from others what we can only give to ourselves.

  • your parents’ praise cannot give you true self-esteem
  • having a kid cannot grow your self-worth
  • oneness with another cannot complete you

This doesn’t mean you have to have it all together first, in order to have relationships. It just means instead of expecting your relationships to heal our struggles, expect them to continually reveal those struggles, and challenge us to grow through them.

Peace begins with pause,
