Just One Hand

By Greg Baer M.D.

August 11, 2011

Recently I was talking with a man whose life had become increasingly unhappy. A number of questions revealed—no surprise—that he had never felt unconditionally loved. So I showed him what Real Love looked like, and the effect was dramatic. In the space of a few hours, he felt much less afraid, less angry, more peaceful.

But then he said, "But what happens when I leave here? How can I find other people to do this with me?"

"Right now, you only need one hand," I said.

"What do you mean?"

"For most of your life you've been in the middle of the ocean drowning. I'm extending a hand to pull you in the boat. Right now that one hand is all that matters. Focus on that. If you're busy worrying about what will happen in the future if you drown again, you'll let go of the one hand, and you'll be drowning again."

If you're drowning, you only need one extended hand. If you're starving, in the moment you only need one meal. Find the love you need and embrace that completely before you move on to your next fear.
