I link this post from Eamon Costello (posted today, not two years ago as the title might suggest). It expresses the sort of openness that's important to me (as opposed, I suppose, where every act of openness is transactional, expecting a return, a quid pro quo). "It is the hope that we can gain some release from that which we think we cannot do without. It is the promise of liberation from whatever it is we hold too tightly; of education as the practice of freedom." I think this is true: that we are most free when we are giving, not taking, when we are being, not striving.
