I cannot get enough of it. I have been known to say that I am doubtful that I could tire of connecting authentically with people.
I would love to do an experiment to see how long I could go (with bathroom and food breaks) before I am tapped out. As an extrovert that is not daunting; it is exhilarating. For an introvert that would most likely sound like torture. What I would love to do in that time is to meander in a nonlinear way through ideas, issues, solutions, dreams, desires, beliefs that serve and those that don’t and other undiscovered topics in between. I call these types of talks…circling the wagon (or exploring the issue/opportunity from all angles).
The reason why I mention this is because today I got a “hit” of meaningful connection with a re-acquainted friend. The purpose of the meeting was to dig deep on a meaningful topic. My friend had read Byron Katie’s book Loving What Is and wanted to gain more perspective on it. I LOVE to share what I know, what I think, what I believe, how I see things and then random stuff like animal totems and metaphors. It is this beautiful exploration of the tapestry of our thoughts, feelings, and experience of our lives: that brings me into a state of ecstasy (still using the ‘drug’ metaphor here). This drug, I will never say no to!
