January 2019 Open Session Excerpt
Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon
If you have ever felt that there is something wrong with you, please understand that this is the year to discard those feelings. There is nothing wrong with you. You are not broken.
You are not something that needs to be fixed, but rather you need to be revealed to the world. It is when you hold yourself back that you feel that life is not working, that it's not dancing with you, that it doesn't love you, that it doesn't care about you. But, when you have the courage to come to the surface, to be vulnerable, to surrender to your truth, to give it to the world unabashedly, this is coming from the heart of God. You will soon discover that you are perfectly created, that you don't have to change anything or fix anything about you, but just instead, in this moment, reveal yourself, reveal your heart, give to one another of yourself. That is the greatest gift of all. It surpasses money, it surpasses any sort of gift that you might ever give to someone: it is the gift of yourself, the attention of your heart, the truth upon the surface, not hiding yourself away, giving everybody in life an opportunity to respond to you as you really are, not some semblance of you that you think you want to put on the surface in order to be loved. It's not about the way that you dress. It's not about anything other than giving of yourself truthfully; your own way of expressing yourself. Stop trying to edit what you say thinking that this is what the world wants to hear. How terribly boring that is, God bless you indeed. My dear friends, speak your truth if you know it and let it jostle whom it may. Let the people see you for who you are, and then you will learn about yourself, about your own self-expression, what it is that works within you rather than what works within the world, God bless you indeed.
