Love Skill #8 – Be Visible


Love Skill #8

Be Visible

By Dr. Scott Peck & Shannon Peck 


Being visible allows the entire universe
to see & love the real you

How visible are you?

How well do others know who you are?

Do you reveal yourself fully to anyone?

We are not talking about revealing your innermost secrets or becoming loud, obnoxious, unloving, or blatant. We are talking about your lovely inner self and its fullest expression – your unique individuality revealed!

You are unduplicatable. There will never be another you. This is true for everyone who has ever lived or ever will live. Each of us is unique. Yet, rather than celebrating our uniqueness, we often strive to conform to each other.

Think of people you most admire for being fully visible. On a scale from 1 to 10, Monet was a 10 when he painted his water lilies, Beethoven was a 10 when he composed his 9th symphony, Ghandi was a 10 in living for non-violence. Oprah is a 10 continually. It takes courage and boldness to be who you are without hiding or timidity or being a watered-down version of yourself.

Why don’t we just come forth?

There is a right of passage in becoming visible. In the hero’s journey, there are dragons that must be slain in order to reach destiny. The dragons on the destiny path to visibility are fears of rejection, being judged when we expose ourselves, losing esteem, and even losing someone’s love. We tell ourselves that we could lose.

Do we dare risk everything by being visible? After all, we’ve invested a life in conforming so no one will notice our inner selves.

Everyone wants to find their soul mates and soul groups, but if no one is fully visible, how can we find each other?

There are many advantages to being visible. The value of knowing who you are means that no one else can tell you who you are. You are also less likely to be confused by someone’s misunderstanding or false interpretation of you.

Being visible means that you access your inner self and are willing to share it with others. There is deep satisfaction in revealing your core self and its innate goodness and worth. Everyone is full of treasures beyond the superficial layers of timidness, fear, and defenses. Wouldn’t you like to see more of these treasures in everyone, including yourself?

What would your fully visible, genuine self look like?

Practice taking one step forward today to be more visible. And another step forward tomorrow. Step by step, you will come to see who you are.

Be visible like flowers that don’t hold back their vivid colors, fragrances, sizes, and beautiful shapes. We love them for their rich individuality.

This is how you deserve to be loved too!

Thank you for every step you take to be more visible in sharing your magnificence with the universe.

We need your visibility!


I am the completely visible Presence
of all that divine Love
wants me to be
