If you live under spiritual discipline you will live with several goals. To be of service in deep ways is one of them. Rigor in honesty is another. To be connected is a third. Something I call transparency allows for the increase of trust between those who communicate together. Transparency consists of discussion that invites another into intimacy. Intimacy itself is a goal. Sharing from deep levels, placing oneself on display to a spiritual purpose is valuable and in some circles essential to the process.
There is a prerequisite or else this kind of behavior is insane on this planet...one must have come to terms with oneself in such a way that the struggle is largely over. If I live transparently then I can speak transparently. If I no longer have things to hide, then my privacy, which I still cherish is no longer a blanket over the things about me that I share.
This does not mean that I am likely to tell you certain passwords and other numbers critical in my life, the size of my bank account or the actual address of my house. I also tend to keep my last name private on line. I will not tell you that until you are a friend and need to know.
