What heals?

“Paradoxically, a group of humans becomes healing and converting only after its members have learned to stop trying to heal and convert. Community is a safe place precisely because no one is attempting to heal or convert you, to fix you, to change you. Instead, the members accept you as you are. You are free to be you. And being so free, you are free to discard defenses, masks, disguises; free to seek your own psychological and spiritual health; free to become your whole and holy self.”

-- Scott Peck

Yes, when we are ourselves we are whole. If we get too caught up in thinking we are unhealthy or in need of healing we shift our focus away from the very thing we seek: wellness. Other people help us to see ourselves from different perspectives which is so self-affirming. Communities support who we are whilst giving us the freedom to express ourselves openly.
