True intimacy is what happens when we are transparent, when there is nothing left to uphold, nothing to hide or hide behind, nothing to protect. Then another can see us, meet us, and in that meeting discover there is only just this that we are.
In intimacy there is nothing to give or to take, there is simply whatever arises in this vast open limitless space of being. Intimacy belongs neither to you nor to another, so there is nothing to lose or to gain.
In intimacy, there is only One being, One Heart, experiencing this apparent dance of differences, change, time, expressing to and as Self.
True intimacy does not even require another. In aloneness you are transparent to yourself and totally at one with all that is. It is intimacy with the Beloved that we are.
