Many people wish for more openness from others and think they themselves are open. But how open are we actually – regardless of our claim or belief in our own openness? The question can be answered more easily if we ask ourselves “what do we want to be open for?”. The answer can only be one “for all”, otherwise there is no real openness. Experiences, thoughts and moulded needs limit us to be really open to everything, to create space in the encounter with someone else.
If you want to try real openness you might ask yourself in front of a meeting the following question:
How would I now go to this meeting, if I were reborn this morning?
