The mystery of an open life

17 Dec

A lot of actors are afraid of being “open” in their private lives because they are afraid that it will destroy their mystique. I believe the opposite is true… the more open a person becomes… the more alluring, the more fascinating, the more mysteriously wonderful they will become.

When you are closed, you present a facade, a representation of yourself that is very easy to define and quantify. Just as it is impossible to fully know or comprehend the depth and breadth of God, so in a similar way it is impossible to fully know or comprehend the depth and breadth of another human soul. It is this continual exploration, the joy of searching, finding and knowing that allows a “few” brave souls to continue to grow in openness and intimacy till the very end of their lives here on Terra firma…

To know and to be known… these are the reasons for breathing…
