We all long for the naturalness of being authentically real. Are you allowing yourself to come out of hiding? There is no need to to have defense in place in order to protect yourself from life. You are beautiful just as you are.

When you discover that unmoving center then there is an awareness to presence that is present to itself in any given moment.
