Excerpt About Clarity
Simply stated, inquiry requires the presence of loving kindness. Our clarity and precision need to embody the sensitivity of kindness to respond to exactly where we are. With compassion, inquiry considers appropriately—in a very gentle, delicate, selfless way—how we are vulnerable and how we are hurting. So our inquiry must be courageous, curious, and steadfast, but also considerate of the pain and sensitive to our vulnerability. In this way, our soul will feel willing and interested to open up and reveal her hidden pains. This presence of precise and attuned kindness also allows our soul to be touched by the healing element, which is the presence of loving kindness—the Green Essence.
