Maybe today, just try and smile at people as you pass them, hold eye contact that little longer, with the sparkle of compassion and warmth.
Our community has eroded to such an extent that it has left us devoid of the richness of feeling the flow of love that exists when we allow ourselves to open up to our more natural state as a connected family.
The good news is that we can be the medicine for the ailment that afflicts us and so many western or so-called developed cultures. All we need to do is be a little courageous, a little vulnerable and be the person to say ‘hello’, to look up from our phones and connect with others as we travel through the day.
Smile by smile, connection by connection we can each water the withering vines of community and create a richer, more deeply connected life for ourselves and the strangers waiting to become our friends.
