*********

From this episode:

I'm speaking to the part of you that is lonely. The part you don't let anyone see because it's just too painful.

What would it be like if you could bring your whole self out of the darkness and into the light? What would it be like for ALL of you to be out in the open? What would it be like to be loved unconditionally?

That's where we're going today on our journey.

Holy WOW. What would that be like? How amazing? I'm getting chills just thinking about a love so big, so pervasive, that says, "You're human.... there is nothing a human can do, think, or say that diminishes you."

The kind of love and kindness that Dumbledore brings when he shows up in Harry Potter.
