Being able to love
Being able to see the completeness and perfection of the soul in each and every human being is the first prerequisite for working therapeutically with people.
To love is to be able to recognize the soul.
To see this completeness and perfection, even if it is not obvious right then, means being able to love that person. People cannot develop what we don’t trust they can. Whomever we are facing—whether they have stinky feet, they weigh 400 lbs. or they are a murderer—it is our task to see and recognize the beauty and potential of their soul and not to block the treatment because of our own inner judgment.
“Spherical vision” is the most essential tool in attaining a state of neutrality.
