Timing

When we first find a new piece of ourselves, a new feeling inside, or a new knowing
It is as well to keep quiet about it for a while
Maybe even many moons
Then when the time comes,
Revealing ourselves to others will hopefully be a moving experience,
Engendering a true expansion and communion
But only if we’re ready to do so,
And able to be received by the other person.
Openness is a delight when the time is right,
But if you don’t respect your own need to be hidden,
And the other’s readiness to see you,
Then you’ll damage the very doors that create the experience of openness
