What does it mean to be a whole person? We hear talk of holistic this-and-that these days. What does wholeness mean to us? A whole person is someone who is integrated— mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually— which means: just being who we really are without artifice. Margot Fonteyn said, "Great artists are people who find the way to be themselves in their art." Yet so many of us are trying to be someone else. I think we grow up with the idea that just being ourselves isn't good enough—somehow we should be better than we are or differ-ent than we are. Perhaps real wholeness and self-integration come when we relax so completely that we simply allow who and what we are to be—without our needing to be anything or anyone other than who we are. There is a natural state in which each of us rests in our own uniqueness and where we discover our true identity and our oneness with all life.
