Gil Fronsdal leads a Guided Meditation Dharmette: Space. The idea of making space for things to appear, some people are afraid when they are approached.
There are people are afraid and if you approach them too directly or try to fix them or do something for them or try to be really friendly, it actually doesn't work so well. Sometimes, just sitting back maybe not ignoring them but not needing anything to happen but just being present in an unassertive way unassuming way and then allow something to happen, allow people to breathe, allow something to bubble up and come up, and the same thing is true for ourselves.
There are aspects of the human being that have the chance to come forward and show themselves if we not always there trying to fix or improve or understand or plan or defend or analyze or bring with us all the knowledge we have. Sometimes, too much is a problem.
