Presenting your Essence
One of the proverbs states “ As a face is to the water, so is the heart of a person to the heart of another person.”
When we approach each other in intimacy, authentically, heart to heart, we reflect each other.
If we want to encounter the essence of the universe, then you have to be willing to expose your own essence to the universe. The universe can only reflect what you're presenting. If you present yourself with genuineness, with authenticity, your beauty in truth, then you reveal your essence and the essence of the universe will be revealed to you. You have to be real to see the Real.
