Hello Everyone, and a happy Thursday evening to all.
Today I thoroughly enjoyed a two-hour online video interview with someone who is committed to making a difference in the lives of others, and consequently in her own life too. We could have chatted for another two hours, and perhaps will do so again.
I am not a trained speaker and certainly do not have the polished delivery of a Wayne Dyer or his like, so out of pure enthusiasm for getting the point across I tend to ramble and repeat myself. Sometimes… well okay oftentimes… I struggle to find the words to express a concept. I do so much prefer writing to talking.
Today I was asked a lot of questions about connectedness, especially why getting back into nature is so beneficial… and what about it is exactly beneficial. I sometimes feel like shouting “Because it just is. Trust me. Do it and you’ll get it.” I was asked about taking quiet time and how doing nothing permits greater connectedness… and connectedness to what exactly. What and where is the source of knowledge we are connecting to? “I don’t really know. Just do it and enjoy the benefit,” is not a satisfactory answer.
After the interview I had to go pick my car up from the dealership service depot. In the solitude of the drive back from the dealership, I thought about how I could describe what are innately deep and primitive knowings in a way that people who have boxed themselves off from that connectedness can grasp sufficiently to find the motivation to get reconnected. I came up empty.
I returned to my office and checked email. One was from a dear friend. It contained a link to a video and the simple words “This is unbelievably special.” We all get lots of such emails and who has the time to click on them and follow along? Something about this one stopped me from going to the next email. I clicked the link and to my immediate dismay saw that I had opened a documentary video that is all of fifty minutes long. Who has fifty minutes to watch something they had not planned to watch? Still, I felt compelled. I clicked the link.
From the first second to the last I was mesmerized. Here was perhaps the best visual validation of TSS. Our ability to reconnect, and the importance of it in our lives. I don’t want to steal the impact by describing what is in this video. It starts out slowly and like me you may wonder where it is going, but after about five minutes (no don’t skip) it takes you on a beautiful journey, and I believe it will inspire you to stick with TSS and understand the power or that reconnection. For me the time passed as if it were five minutes, and I felt that the video answered perfectly those questions I had struggled with earlier. Some of you may have seen this video before. I suggest you watch it again with eyes (and ears) wide open.
I cannot recommend highly enough that you make the time to watch this video. I suggest you watch it alone because it may speak to a part of you that can be closed off when you are in the company of others. Afterward I am 100% certain you will want to share it, but the benefit I think from a TSS perspective is to watch this in solitude.
