Brian Thorne – Credo

‘I believe that I am of infinite worth and all others with me.

I believe that I need not be afraid of my inner world and must strive fearlessly to be in touch with it even if this is painful or confusing.

I believe that it is my task to remain open to experience both inner and outer.

I believe that the other deserves my understanding and not my judgement.

I believe that to understand the other’s world and to communicate that understanding is an essential part of being human.

I believe that contractual living reduces human beings to commodities and that unfettered materialism destroys personhood.

I believe that unconditional acceptance, both offered and received, dispels fear and opens up the path to authentic living.’
