THERE ARE MANY PATHS UP THE MOUNTAIN, WHICH PATH YOU TAKE IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU, CONNECTIONS WITH OTHERS IS PART OF WHAT MAKES THE ADVENTURE FUN

The Many Paths Up the Mountain and What That Means

Angela Coulter "There are many paths up the mountain; but at the top, we all see the same bright moon." The many paths to take; is there a "wrong" vs. "right" way; the unique experience of us all during this Awakening period; being without judgment of others...

There are many paths up the mountain.  Once we reach the top, we all see the same bright 'sun', and each person has their own definition of what that peak consists of. Since there are many paths to take on the hero's journey, and many infinite definitions around the peak of the mountain, there is no "wrong" vs. "right" way. The journey to the top is both an inner and an outer one. 

THE UNIVERSAL BATTLE EVERYONE IS FIGHTING INSIDE CAN BE DESCRIBED BY THE ANCIENT STORY OF TWO WOLVES


The Story Of Two Wolves On A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-story-of-two-wolves-and-green-road.html

This story illustrates how the focus is important. Which way we focus means that we either experience darkness, lose worthy friends, or we experience more light in our lives and gain people that are worth hanging around with.


It is easy to get isolated and become lonely on the path up the mountain. How do people connect in meaningful ways while creating and being happy building their own Green Road that leads to the mountain top?

HOW TO MAGICALLY CONNECT WITH ANYONE

For more than 10 years he has entertained and spoken with thousands of audiences in over 25 states and internationally.


CIVILIZED WORLD IS FULL OF DISCONNECTING FAKE REALITIES

The world is full of temptations to disconnect on many levels. Our modern civilization with all of it's technology and shopping offers a wealth of shallow, virtual relationships with other people and the fake world around us that makes up civilization.


The faux reality of modern workplaces, families, cities and organizations offers only a feeling of emptiness and of something missing. The symptom of missing what is real may manifest in pain, depression, emptiness, a feeling of disconnection and/or sadness despite having a lot of money, possessions, power or even lots of friends and belonging to all of the 'right' organizations. Addictions are a symptom of this disconnection, as they are an unconscious attempt to cover up the feelings and the emptiness, that results in part from a lack of meaningful connections.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #1; AVOID FAUX HIGH TECH COMMUNICATION METHODS IF YOU DESIRE TRUE INTIMACY AND CONNECTION

Connect in real ways that involve emotional connections and sharing.. such as sacred circles, praying together, singing, meditating, talking person to person, eye to eye, etc. Communication methods that do not allow real meaningful connections are things like; messaging, internet chats, emails, message skype, unclear cellphones, online groups, any form of communication with skips, breaks, pauses, glitches, hard to hear, hard to understand, and other forms of virtual reality that are flat, with easy to misunderstand monotone communications. (not 3 D) 

Video skyping may work if the connection is good and rock solid, but so far, that has not been the experience with it. Feel free to try it out yourself.)

Paradoxically, because of Internet communications methods it is now easier to see through the machinations of those who are destroying health, justice, freedom, information, money, economy, and justice. 

Spiritual, Interfaith, Consciousness; How To Create Heaven On Earth
It is not possible to get real, meaningful connections via the virtual world, even if one has a million followers/friends on Twitter or Facebook, for example. You will have a much more meaningful connection with one true friend that you talk with via a clear phone connection than you can with a million online friends, due to the multi-layered emotional content missing via the Internet, email and messenging. 
A face to face connection is even better because that adds body language, minute facial expressions, social cues, and other dimensions via other communications and connections we are not even aware of when talking by phone. Even when talking via a solid and very clear landline phone, a lot is missing and that is the best that technology currently offers. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #2; TURN OFF THE MASS MEDIA PRO CORPORATE TV NEWS, CABLE OR SATELLITE PROVIDER

The greatest time wasters and fake connecting high tech method consists of mass media pro globalist corporation sponsored TV, especially cable or satellite feeds that offer hundreds of channels, and tons of news offerings, all with the same flavor and color of pro corporate spin Matrix offerings. 

If you must have TV, watch what you want via services like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Gauali, or some other provider where you choose what to watch in the moment. 

Increase your time of watching great movies with positive moral/ethical messages and inspiring spiritual or sustainable health related channels. Spend time in Nature, by biking, walking, etc.

Better yet, toss the cable or satellite subscription out and watch something 100 percent inspiring on Youtube. Worried about missing the news? Maybe the mass media news is the problem...

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #3; MINIMIZE OR AVOID RADIATION OF ALL KINDS

Except for healthy doses of sunlight and heat from things like wood stoves, ionizing radiation is cumulative and harmful.

Different kinds of radiation are emitted from our modern society, but they can all be a source of harm, depending on distance and dose.

Those promoting the hormesis theory will claim that heavy metals, poisons, toxic chemicals and radiations like the following are all healthy and good for you.. Beware...

Ionizing radiation

Cell phones
Wifi
Electromagnetic

Microwaves

Radar
Ionizing radiation; don't live near or downwind of radiation filled mines, facilities or nuclear power plants. If you can, stay at least 200 miles away from these facilities.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #4; FACTORY FOODS AND PATENT DRUGS ARE NOT THE ANSWER TO GETTING AND KEEPING CONNECTIONS; THEY COVER UP THE SYMPTOMS AND IGNORE THE CAUSE, OFTEN DULL THE EMOTIONS, NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE BRAIN AND HEALTH


The answer from the high priced professionals for all of the emptiness and negative feelings that just about everyone has are an array of expensive patent drugs and/or illegal drugs that make a person feel good chemically.

Dr. Joel Wallach - Dead Doctor's Don't Lie, And Modern Factory Farming Consequences 
Again, the emphasis is on covering up the real feelings, and seeking out the appearance of normality via chemical manipulation, which is a very poor substitute for reality and/or connections. Artificial man made feel good chemicals have their own drawbacks which become more and more evident with time, in all kinds of directions, and on all levels.

THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS BEEN LOST


At the same time, using drugs to feel better and is not the answer as almost all drugs are just used for symptom control.

Fighting drug use by throwing everyone in jail for life  is also not the answer.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #5; BEING FAMOUS OR IN A POSITION OF POWER CAN CAUSE A SEVERE DISCONNECTION, MAYBE YOU DON'T WANT TO GO THERE


The feeling of disconnection can manifest as a feeling of being alone. Who would choose to be with you, if you had no money, no house, no position of influence? Is anyone left? This will tell you if you have any real friends, or family members who care about more than surface, fake, shallow, and virtual reality things.
Famous people, CEO's, and ministers might be the most lonely, and the most disconnected people on the planet. Why?  These special individuals are protected 24 hours a day from the real world by 'handlers', PR people, body guards, gates, walls, alarm systems, piles of money they must guard above all else, possessions that take all of their attention, energy and time, plus more. 

It is hard to be real when that person is surrounded by multiple layers of things and people who work constantly at keeping that person from the truth, reality, real feelings, and real connections, much less REAL intimacy. CEO's and famous personalities are constantly surrounded by yes men/women, because they are afraid of being real and honest. 

Pissing off the boss by disagreeing might get you demoted or fired, you understand. And really big egos cannot stand anyone disagreeing with them about ANYTHING. The biggest egos are always right, you see, and never wrong. Absolute power tends to attract the biggest egos, and the biggest sociopaths. 

How To Spot A Sociopath Or Psychopath - 10 red flags that could save you from being swept under the influence of a charismatic nut job; via A Green Road

Many CEO's want nothing more than yes men, because they are stuck in terminal ego mode. The bigger the ego, the more the desire is to be surrounded by yes men and women. The price that must be paid by people like this is  the lack of any real, meaningful and truly intimate connections. 

What Is The Matrix, And What Does It Mean To Take The Red Pill?

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #6; CARE ABOUT OTHERS, KEEP IT REAL AND TELL IT LIKE IT IS; FAKING FEELINGS OR COVERING THEM UP LEADS TO DISCONNECTION AND FAKE RELATIONSHIPS


Everyone is taught to say "I feel fine" when asked how one is feeling. This points at the disconnected reality most people live in.. People keep up appearances, but do not care about what reality looks or feels like. There is the fake worldly appearance that must be kept up for the neighbors, and for groups of surface layer connections, usually through politics, religion, work, family, neighborhood associations or other civic groups, but where are the deep, meaningful connections there? Are there any real things going on, or is it mostly about just going through the motions and pretending, for appearance and ego supporting sake? 

Titantic and Costa Concordia - Example of Normalcy Bias In Fukushima Mega Disaster

When was the last time you shared a REAL, raw, honest feeling with someone close to you, and not have them be threatened, attack you for it, or have them leave because it is uncomfortable to talk about and share around raw negative emotions, (plus positive ones)? How many people can you speak with about a difficult situation, such as depression, feelings of suicide, rage, or global issues that threaten the planet?

I DON’T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN TO YOU THAT YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE
DECEMBER 20, 2017 A GREEN ROAD DAILY NEWS
Personally, I’m happy to pay an extra 4.3 percent for my fast food burger if it means the person making it for me can afford to feed their own family. If you aren’t willing to fork over an extra 17 cents for a Big Mac, you’re a fundamentally different person than I am.

I’m perfectly content to pay taxes that go toward public schools, even though I’m childless and intend to stay that way, because all children deserve a quality, free education. If this seems unfair or unreasonable to you, we are never going to see eye to eye.

If I have to pay a little more with each paycheck to ensure my fellow Americans can access health care? SIGN ME UP. Poverty should not be a death sentence in the richest country in the world. If you’re okay with thousands of people dying of treatable diseases just so the wealthiest among us can hoard still more wealth, there is a divide between our worldviews that can never be bridged.

I don’t know how to convince someone how to experience the basic human emotion of empathy. I cannot have one more conversation with someone who is content to see millions of people suffer needlessly in exchange for a tax cut that statistically they’ll never see (do you make anywhere close to the median American salary? Less? Congrats, this tax break is not for you).

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #7; STAYING STUCK IN DYSFUNCTIONAL UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS AND GROUPS CAN LEAD TO FEELING FEAR, HATRED, DEPRESSION, DISCONNECTED OR EMPTY

It is easy to be in a group of people, yet feel alone and disconnected. It is easy to get married, yet still feel very lonely and not understood, much less truly heard, understood, valued, cherished, loved, and/or respected. It is easy to be successful, but much harder to find friends who not there solely due to the money, position, influence, or 'favors'. One never knows at those higher levels if there is a true friend in all of those yes men/women, groupies, followers and people claiming to be true friends, or if they are pretending, in order to 'get' something. Getting deeper into fear, anger and hatred leads to doublethink, and disconnection from other people. 

Doublethink In History And Present Day
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/08/doublethink-in-history-and-present-day.html

Seek out and find what and who feels good. What makes you get into your heart and stay there? Who helps you get into your heart and stay there?
Time, weather, politics, religions, belief systems, social programming, diet, habits,  our bodies, people around us, and more are all changing constantly. Part of the feeling of being disconnected is due to the fear of change, the resistance to change, and feeling a lack of any firm foundation because of all of these changes. The resistance to change develops into normalcy bias or denial, which is another word for describing a lack of a real connection to the world, via the present moment.

Titantic and Costa Concordia - Example of Normalcy Bias In Fukushima Mega Disaster

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #8; LOOK FOR AND GIVE IN A 3 TO 1 RATIO


In relationships, look for the magic 3 to 1 ratio and make sure that give it to others as well. The way to a healthy, strong and vibrant relationship, friendship and/or marriage is to give 3 positives for every negative. If you want this, you have to give it as well. 

People get overwhelmed if all they get from a partner or friend is grief, sadness, depression, or other energy sucking negative emotions. It is ok to share negative situations, emotions and experiences, but over the long haul, keep in mind the rule about giving something positive to the other person on a 3 to 1 ratio. 
People tend to stick around if most of what you give to them is positive, but they tend to leave if the ration is the other way around. Learn how to be positive, even in the middle of a never negative situation, if you have to. There is a balance here, and sometimes it is easy to slip and fall. Pick yourself up and commit again to being the person you would want to hang out with. Remember the two wolves story... which wolf are you paying attention to and feeding?

The Story Of Two Wolves On A Green Road


DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #9; LOOK FOR THE GIFTS IN ALL SITUATIONS

Sometimes life really sucks. We make our positive plans, keep a positive outlook and then life hits us on the head with sledgehammer. Look for the gifts in negative situations that you cannot change. Ask for the gifts to be shown or revealed to you, especially those that connect you in a more meaningful, deeper and more intimate way.  Every seeming negative has a silver or positive lining. If you can find these gifts, especially if you allow other people to participate in this very deeply connecting process, will make the negative much easier to bear, or it cause it to disappear entirely.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #10; CONNECT IN MEANINGFUL WAYS THAT INVOLVE REALLY DEEP SHARING


There is almost zero growth and connection in just sharing meaningless superficial soundbites that talk about people, which one hears or sees on TV or in the newspaper and then shares via email/texting. 

Develop real Intimacy, rather than staying stuck in the meaningless, empty, superficial surface shallow layer of life. In To You And Me I See is not possible with everyone. Intimacy is just a superficial buzzword in the online world. The following link gives an example of how it is done in a school setting to solve conflicts, plus come to resolution, through the use of a sacred circle. 

Anyone can go to a lunch and talk about the weather, the food, and the latest dress styles or argue about politics endlessly. None of those things are going to connecting people in deep meaningful ways. Even having sex every day with strangers will not lead to really deep connections, and more than likely is more about an addiction, and a 12 step group is called for, where really deep connections are much more likely. 


Use the article above to learn how to form a local or virtual global group that discusses this and other stories that make up the Science Of Sustainable Health And Success.


DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #11; COUNT THEM: WHO ARE THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO YOU THAT SUPPORT YOU AND A HEALTHY WAY OF LIVING? SEEK THEM OUT


Who are the people closest to you? You are just like them, so if you like them, love them, and feel good around them, (and they are not just yes men) great, you may very likely have some deep connections forming! What if those people you are closest to piss you off, push your buttons, grate on your nerves or you feel empty, depressed, powerless, low energy, or negative around them? Then that is something to look at within yourself first, rather than blaming them. 

Try going to a 12 step group, especially if there are drugs, alcohol, gambling or other addictions involved. There is a 12 step group for everything, including sex and emotional enabling by the way. A 12 step group is one form of a sacred circle, but there are many others out there. Seek them out, as you will make paradigm shifts within them, and offer the same gift to others inside of them. 

How To Form A Sacred Circle Study Group

The world mirrors who we are back to us, attracting to us the people we need to experience so that we can 'see' parts of ourselves that need work, healthy boundary setting, healing or transformation. If a person is not learning the lessons, then that person gets people who are more intensely like whatever it is that we do not want in our life, and that is a clue as well.. Look within first, not without. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #12; STAY VULNERABLE


Being vulnerable is another way to connect. What does being vulnerable mean? Is it being weak, and running away? Or is it staying strong and accepting a person just the way that they are, where they are, in the middle of a painful situation involving grief, sadness, anger or other emotions?

Staying vulnerable but not reacting to healthy (not dysfunctional addiction inspired feelings) feelings by not taking them personally or running away at the first sign of something real, is a difficult lesson.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #13; DANCE, MOVE, SING, DO ART, HOLD HANDS, MEDITATE TO UNCOVER YOUR TRUE SELF


Dancing, movement in harmony, one heartbeat, with many people, one voice, art and singing can all help to connect you to your essence. Breathing together, synchronicity, and getting brain waves to start working together in harmony, all leads to deeper connection. There are many ways to connect with what really matters, including telling stories, getting motivated, and exploring spiritual subjects...

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #14; DON'T CHECK OUT OR DISAPPEAR

Checking out is always a temptation. Denial is not a river in Egypt. When something difficult emotionally comes up, don't resist it. Go into the emotions, feel them, talk about them, and explore the gifts that they bring. Fight what? Fight myself. Fight the desire to run, to check out, to disappear.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #15; MEDITATE

Learning how to do meditation is a very important part of exploring other dimensions of yourself. There is no one right way to meditate. Explore the many different ways to meditate and find the method or style that fits you. Just like religions, there are many styles and types of meditation. Keep looking and exploring the many types until there is one that 'fits'.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #16; PRAY

Prayer can form the foundation of your life, on top of which everything else is built. Without prayer, life can be a lot harder and more difficult. Experiment with prayer and see what happens after trying it for 90 days, with a prayer partner. Having a prayer partner makes the process much easier, richer and more rewarding.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #17; CONNECT WITH WISE ELDERS

Connect with wise elders, whether that is in a sacred circle, a church, a spiritual group, a meditation group, a cultural celebration, or other setting. Wise elders are there for a reason. Hang around and ask advice of wise elders. A wise elder can be a spiritual intuitive, or they may be as close as a family member, such as a grandmother, grandfather, uncle, aunt or parent.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #18; GET REGULAR TOUCHING

Buy or trade for massages on a regular basis. Get regular touching, as it is very grounding and soothing. Give and get lots of hugs on a daily basis if you can.  

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #19; BALANCE OR MOVE YOUR INNER ENERGY, OR HAVE IT MOVED FOR YOU

We are beings of energy, housed in what feels like a physical body. But the physical body is actually mostly space and about 1% actual physical matter. Move or release blocked energy using acupuncture, massage, or other techniques such as chiropractic. Walking can and does balance the energy systems of the body. Walking can also do much more, for those interested in taking it another step or two further..

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #20; DESTRESS REGULARLY, SO YOU CAN SHOW UP WITHOUT THE STRESSFUL ENERGY FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO CONNECT WITH YOU DEEPLY

There are many methods to help destress daily, including such things as incense, hot tubs, steam rooms, hot baths, massage, aromatherapy, float tanks, and reflexology. Use any and all methods. Combine them in unique combinations to help stay relaxed and destressed. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #21; SPEND MORE TIME IN NATURE

Take a walk in Nature, with someone you love or at least like. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #22; CONNECT WITH THE EARTH, OR SWIM IN THE WATER

Take off your shoes and connect with the Earth on bare feet in the grass on a frequent basis. Lay on the ground, connect with Mother Earth. Or as an alternative, swim in a clean body of water. Go camping frequently and get out into Nature. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #23; LEAN AGAINST A TREE


Lean against a tree, connect with the tree. Get quiet and see if you can feel what it feels like to be a tree.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #25; DO YOGA OR EQUIVALENT

Do yoga on a regular basis, at least three to five times a week, or more. 

Apart from the spiritual goals, the physical postures of yoga are used to alleviate health problems, reduce stress and make the spine supple in contemporary times. Yoga is also used as a complete exercise program and physical therapy routine.[59] While the practice of yoga continues to rise in contemporary American culture, sufficient and adequate knowledge of the practice’s origins does not. According to Andrea R. Jain, Yoga is undoubtedly a Hindu movement for spiritual meditation, yet is now being marketed as a supplement to a cardio routine.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #26; DO BREATHWORK

Do breath work. Breathing into your belly vs. shallow breathing calms the nervous system of the body. Shallow breathing actually activates the fight or flight response in the body and adds to stress. Learn how to do pranayama yoga.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #27; AVOID DRAMA FOR DRAMAS SAKE 


Avoid distractions, time wasters, energy sucking activities or people, and depressing situations that are drama filled. This does not mean avoiding issues in life, and is not denial or normalcy bias. It may even mean getting involved in working on turning around situations that seem hopeless, while on a spiritual level staying in your heart and feeling love, joy and peace.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #28; AVOID TIME WASTERS

There are many things such as TV that consist of nothing more than wasting time. Ask what is essential and sustainable in your life and what is not... Start deleting those things and people that drain your energy, are violent, and are leading you in a direction that is not sustainable.

Quiet your mind. Become comfortable in the stillness of 'no mind'.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #30; WORK ON ISSUES

Everyone has issues. The issues come up in friendships, relationships and at work.  Instead of blaming and shaming others, while feeling anger and rage, go deeper and explore the roots of these things. There is no separation. What initially looks like their problem, may actually be inside of you, and be your problem. 

The world is a very good mirror. What we see outside is actually a good mirror for what is inside of us, waiting to be worked on. Especially if you are easily triggered and get mad easily, take a look inside at what gets you worked up and angry. It may be time to work on issues of anger, self sabotage, low self-worth/esteem and inner wounds that need to be healed inside of ourselves. 

Investigate things like inner child, inner warrior, hero, etc. 

There is no need to pull in others to play out dramas. 

There are easier ways to learn life lessons than to suffer and experience severe consequences.

Doing affirmations daily is one good way to teach children, and for adults to work on issues.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #31; DEVELOP DEEPER LOCAL COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS

Get to know your neighbors. Sign up for a CSA. Visit a local farm and buy locally made food, drinks and other products. 

Volunteer for a local non profit of your choice, and make a difference. 

Waving at people from inside the hermetically sealed and sound proofed vehicle or home at someone going by, is not connecting, it is a faux reality, with no meaning, and no connection value.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #32; CONNECT TO REAL GREEN PRODUCTS, FOODS,  OTHER GOODS

Buy more organic, local products. Use eco-friendly or fair trade products without chemicals. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #33; DEVELOP A CONNECTING COMPASSION AND EMPATHY FOR EVERYONE, EVEN YOUR 'ENEMY'


Even the worst person in the world deserves compassion, which is another word for love. We can still choose to disagree with them, debate them about issues, and have an agreement not to agree, but these people need our connecting love even more than our closest friends. Think about it. A person who is totally disconnected from their heart knows no real love. 

They cannot feel or connect with anyone. They are stuck in the box of logic that is of their own making. Instead of being mad that them, feel sorry for them and send them some love. In no way is this allowing abuse, unhealthy boundaries, etc.. There is an important distinction being made here. Either live in love, or live in fear; that is our only choice. We cannot connect with others when we are stuck in fear or anger.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #34; AVOID RUMORS, GOSSIP AND BACKBITING, AS IT SHUTS DOWN ALL REAL AND MEANINGFUL COMMUNICATION 


Investigate things for yourself and make up your own mind based on diving into many sources from different points of view, before repeating something negative. Check out www.snopes.com to see if something is really true, before repeating it. See if there is a money, power, religion, or some other bias, or selfish reason behind the story. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #35; STAY OPEN, IN YOUR HEART AND FLEXIBLE WHEN COMMUNICATING


If someone disagrees, before attacking them, go into it more deeply and keep an open mind.  Ask them questions, such as what do you need, and what do you value? What do we have in common, such as doing no harm to seven future generations? Be open to changing your mind frequently, rather than staying stuck in one absolutely, guaranteed 'right' answer, just because someone told you so.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #36; BECOME EMPOWERED AND MORE AWARE AS YOU COMMUNICATE MORE DEEPLY

So why should we do these things?

We are meant to live happy, healthy, abundant lives. When our self-worth and self-esteem are healthy, we realize we’re worthy of creating a good life.

Most importantly, when we live a good life, we’re empowered to help others, and that’s truly the most rewarding task of all.

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #38; TELL AND SHARE YOUR OWN MEANINGFUL STORY


What is your story? Who are you? What makes you, you? What led you up to this point in your life? Telling your story is important, even crucial. It is part of what connects us to each other and makes us unique and different. 

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #39; CONNECT EVEN IN THE DEPTHS OF WORST TIME OF YOUR LIFE, REACH OUT AND ASK FOR A PRAYER PARTNER, HELP, CALL SOMEONE, GO TO A 12 STEP GROUP, OR GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP

Disconnection is a form of depression, because human beings are not designed to be alone and living apart from others for long periods of time in fake realities. Just like isolation cells in prison can drive these individuals crazy, so can living alone and not having deep meaningful connections in life.

When was the last time you shared a REAL, raw, honest feeling with someone close to you, and not have them be threatened, attack you for it, or have them leave because it is uncomfortable to talk about and share around raw negative emotions, (plus positive ones)? How many people can you speak with about a difficult situation, such as depression, feelings of suicide, rage, or global issues that threaten the planet?

DEEP MEANINGFUL CONNECTION HABIT #40; THE ULTIMATE CONNECTION


No one person can ever be our ultimate intimate connection, as humans are imperfect, and do not last forever. Humans die, divorce, leave, do things that violate our bottom line and more. Relying on another human being for the ultimate connection is a mistake, because that is the wrong place to look for it on an ultimate, forever kind of level. Yes, positive people connections are fine, but that is still not the ultimate, most intimate connection. 

The truth is that we are all connected and One. There is actually no separation between people. What our minds believe to be separation is actually an illusion based on what our misleading senses tell us. 
Our connection to the Source and to each other is constantly inviting us in for a deeper look. We all have free will and can choose to refuse the request. Yet the connection is still there, if we happen to change our minds. Everything changes in life, and the appearance is that everything is normal and stays the same, when reality is quite the opposite. Everything changes constantly, and nothing ever stays the same.

The ultimate connection is inside of ourselves, but is synergistic, thus it is more easily accessible and available to us when we are gathered together in a group of other people who are also on that same level.

Remember, everything and everyone is connected, both back into the past and into the future. Think about what works for 7 future generations without causing harm, before y take any action.
