The Lotus Flower Blossoms (as set forth in Chapter XV of my book):
“There is a place where, wherever you are there, whatever you are doing…no matter what, in any given moment, there should be nowhere you would rather be. It is where you are right now – and you have the ability to so deeply and artfully appreciate your life and its living…to connect one healthful insight to the next, and make them all one…learning to witness this already-existing truth.
In the wilderness of our existence…a place of budding flowers about, about to unwrap in a showing of perfect appreciation for all to thrive upon, we are the flowers which can blossom again and again in each season of our deeper and deeper insights…all connected…each better and more healthful than before.
It is not unlike Heaven…and it can become Heaven, with enough insight and appreciation. It takes quite a few sparks, glimpses – spine-tingling moments…as a way-of-life which becomes more and more purposeful…more and more without time or space or distance. More and more there is less and less to hide behind.” — Dr. Glen Hepker

Hi Dr Glen. I’m happy to find this post in your archives. I used to have very, very long hair. I was well aware of the fact that I hid behind it.
I’m not so brave that I cut my hair with the intention of not hiding — there were other reasons. However, I immediately recognized the value of not hiding behind something. Huge hugs. 🙂

Yes, Teagan – you see the issue quite clearly, my friend! And all human beings create things which we hide behind. The key is as you realize, to strategically witness these encumbrances/blockages. With your splendid insights, you will always avoid getting stuck on stagnant plateaus! – Glen
