We are all connected. Energy is the connecting force of our world. We cannot escape it. We either use it for good or not for good. Choose good. It makes us all smile a lot more.
This chapter! This chapter is by far my favorite chapter. It brings it all together. EVERYTHING. The connection between all of us is present and always present no matter what happens on a daily basis. It is what you do with it when this connection is tested over and over and over again.
When the connection is tested and seems broken it is easy to hide, retreat, get angry, yell, cry and yes even hate. It creates a place where we are not able to go into the wilderness. So, amazing isn't it. Just at that time when you should be standing up and shouting from the rooftops and having courage it is easy to stay in our own small world. It makes it easy to get frustrated at someone for being too loud, too quiet, too smelly, too peppy, too happy ... the list can go on! I am sure you get the idea. You have to work with YOU. Work on creating and participating in collective moments!
Journal and/or discuss the following:
1. What collective moments of joy have you participated in? What collective moments of pain have you participated in?
2. How did you feel during the event? After the event?
3. What do you remember in recollection of the event? Who was there? What was going on? Why was the event happening? Were you smiling? Were you laughing? Crying? How does your body feel? What did you smell? What did you hear? What did you wear?
4. It is easy with social media, work, distractions etc to NOT show up. Do you have times where you do this? How can you make a change in this area in your life?
