On the other hand, when we feel connected, we tend to fall in line with the rhythms of the world. We read others as welcoming and are therefore welcoming to them. Our minds are calmer, our attention more focused.
When we connect across the treacherous chasm between self and other,
the waters below us warm and flow out into other parts of our lives,
into our communities, into our homes and work, and beyond
into the vast tangle of humanity that
encircles the globe.
Our brains and bodies are
healthier when we are
We even may live
a longer life.
