When Craving Connection

Last night I read this line in Unconventional Wisdom: Stories Beyond the Mind to Awaken the Heart:

You crave the connection of others because it is lacking within yourself. Where are you disconnected from your true self. . .?

Whoa. It stopped me in my tracks. And even when I was ready to continue I kept flipping back to it, a light on the truth of my own experience.

We as humans desire and thrive on connection to others. But when want becomes desperation that’s when it’s time to take a look at our connection with ourselves.

What comes up for you when you read this quote?
