Labor is not about dilation, it is about opening. Opening of the mind, to invite yourself to new horizons. Opening of the heart, to love another life even moreso than your own. Opening of the spirit, to walk in a faith that may require sacrificing everything. And opening of the body, to willingly surrender control of the life it contains.

Great post. I will try my best to remember this when I am in labour. I think I read in Ina May's book about thinking about opening everything up.
