We human beings hunger for connection.
So in this time of uncertainty and illness, of social distancing and isolation and fear, there seemed like no better time than now to try to launch this project.
I can’t predict how or in what ways Sharing the Journey will grow and evolve. I just know it started with a desire to connect through written and spoken word and a desire to create a space where all seekers, whatever their walks of life and beliefs, could feel welcome and connected and nourished.
Because there is a real hunger. For me, every day, it is for connection–with other people, with myself, and with something greater. This pandemic has shown me just how deep that yearning is–in my body, in my mind, in my soul.
So what exactly is connection in these unusual times? Tune in here for an exploration. (Hint: If the volume sounds low on your system, you might turn your speakers up all the way or use headphones when playing the sound file.)
As you listen, here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do I feel connection with myself? Do I feel connection with others? Do I feel connection with something larger?
- When do I not feel connected?
- When might I not wish to feel connected?
- What types of connections do I value?
- How or in what ways might I strive for deeper connection?
There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. They are just to help you get to know yourself a little better.
My hope is that Sharing the Journey will become a space where we may all connect more deeply:
- with ourselves
- with each other
- with something larger
