Facing Ourselves and Each Other
We never truly know what someone is facing and right now, times are tough for a lot of people. Somehow, many of us have learned to pretend on the stage of life by hiding our true feelings. And the truth is that often it is only those closest to us who will share what’s truly going on.
This is why this is a time for us to open ourselves up to life. Imagine when we have open and honest conversations by really listening to how someone is truly feeling. Even if it makes us uncomfortable to discover that maybe everything is not ok. And perhaps that’s the point of human connection? To feel deeply and be here for ourselves by supporting each other.
For now, we can shine our light. Refrain from drama. Keep ourselves from living in despair by asking for help and support. Connect to ourselves and each other. We don’t have to judge, blame or point fingers when we can start communicating openly. Dialogue is at the heart of human connection.
Facing Human Connection
This is a great time to build connections and community. When we have a digital device, connectivity and electricity, we can jump on a video chat and have meaningful conversations with people anywhere in the world. We don’t have to wait for anyone. We can simply begin to forge alliances that feel meaningful and see this as an adventure.
This is an opportunity for new beginnings with friendships, partnerships, communities, and organizations. What’s your dream of making a difference in your life, and how can you tap into community, or take a step toward making a hope or dream come true?
Take a stand and let go of something you feel is detrimental, or become involved with something or someone you’re passionate about. It’s our time to transform community from a word to a way of life.
The greatest power we possess is our ability to claim our internal passion by reclaiming authority from those who would power over us. And instead, we discern, imagine and build healthy communities that serve our highest needs. It starts by caring and taking an interest in the people around us. We never know what someone is facing until we ask and truly listen without any agenda.
