We are wired to connect.
From the most bare bones level of touch to the psychology of non verbal communication.
In each moment, we are choosing to join or separate - to connect or disconnect - and the person to whom we’re speaking feels what we have chosen regardless of our words - non verbal communication.
The 1st rule of building heart-to-heart connections is that even though it takes two people to create a relationship, the responsibility for connecting starts with us.
The 2nd rule is that everything depends on your level of awareness. How are we being more aware from the inside out and how does this further love and connection?
Many feel the simple answer is this: EGO.
The very construct of the ego brings with it a built in conflict with other egos.
If you think about it, it’s surprising that separate egos, each with their own set of rules and agendas, ever get together in the first place. When they do, their connections always risk unravelling because each ego is primarily tied with what it wants.
Deepak Chopra teaches that the path to an ideal relationship therefore must get past the ego - its insecurities, demands and constant focus on ‘I, me and mine’.
The month of February has historically been known as the month of love, passion, connection - let's take these steps to generate awareness from the inside out so that we can have less ego and more love as the end result.
