Wanting intimacy

I know why people keep others at a distance (fear); the question is how to help them break through. The key may be: get them wanting intimacy. Perhaps find the original impulse. Ask “Why?” more. (Why did you move to Dallas? Why do you want to do that sort of project in your church? Why do you read? Why do you write? What do you write when you write just for yourself? What is underneath your public role as whatever your job is? Original impulse.) Go deeper than this surface pressing on, which is memory being active, to the original, the heart pulse, the new with this person. Slow down so we can uncover.
