Our sole access to any influence we may wish to have upon another lies in our capacity to authentically connect.


In absence of connection,

All I can do is hear you

(Everything is blah, blah, blah).

Nothing conveys, nor crosses our boundaries.


With connection, we have the capacity or an opportunity of listening to one another.


For illustration:

I Invite us to read Reb Nachman of Bratslav's story, "The Turkey Prince."

(Especially the version told by Doug Lipman.)

Connection can heal.
