UNWRAPPING GIFT # 6: CONNECTION

We have looked at the first five gifts, Consciousness, Discernment, Choice, Courage  and Forgiveness.  The sixth is the wonderful gift of Connection.  This is the way we are able to relate to other human beings on the planet at a deep and meaningful level.

So often we interact at a superficial or antagonistic level with others, but when we experience true connection with others we are able to tap into some of the other God-given feelings such as love and compassion.  

Disconnection is what leads to broken homes, broken countries and a broken planet.  Connection is the great healer where we are able to love, honour and respect people for who they are, regardless of how different they may be.

What does connection take?  It is as simple as:

  • Dropping all of our judgments about others
  • Opening our hearts and making ourselves vulnerable
  • Letting go our resentments (forgiveness)
  • Being our authentic and loving selves

Connect now with a neighnour near you: you'll be so glad you did!
