We -- all of us -- are connected, whether we want to admit it or not.
Easily seen are the ecological connections of nature and the underlying interdependence that goes with them. Social versions of that same interconnectivity and interdependence also exist. We are inextricably connected. That is more the case now than ever in human history.
Are we not richer, wiser, more understanding, when we consider the viewpoints, and the antecedents of those viewpoints, of others?
Purposefully keeping our "connections" open, and expanding our network of connections is an excellent way to grow, and learn, and get better.
LISTENING is an excellent way to make others comfortable connecting with us. It's a learnable skill.
BONUS: Eric Bibb nicely captures our connectedness in his song you can listen to HERE.
