Part I: Hold Her
“She doesn’t want me to calm her down, which is another way of saying, ‘look, get smaller, shrink, shrink what you’re doing. Stop expressing so much because I can’t handle that.’ ”—Bryan
How have you made someone else feel smaller? Has somebody else made you feel smaller? What is the experience like?
Part II: Full Self-Expression
“That’s all any of us want is to be loved in our full expression… .” —Bryan
How can you hold someone else’s pain?
Part III: Women
“No mortal woman can love perfectly, in the sense of can give me what I don’t already have.”—Bryan
Ask what you are missing in the mystery of relationships and love.
Part IV: Cut off
“I was dead inside. I was completely cut off from my body. I couldn’t laugh, not really. I couldn’t cry. I couldn’t feel anything.” —Bryan
What will make you feel again?
