Today I discovered a key. You know that feeling you get when you are chasing an answer to something but haven’t quite worked out the right question to ask?
In the last few years I have wondered what it is that renders us slaves to anxiety, depression, drug dependence. Numbness.
It is so abundant in our generation, how did we arrive here?
What is it about the numbness that is so appealing, beckons you like an old friend who knows you better than you know yourself?
Ironically I found my way to this answer scrolling through my facebook feed. An interesting article about drug addiction radically challenging the school of thought surrounding addiction popped itself on my radar. Sure, I thought, why not… looks interesting.
Read it for yourself, I would love to hear your thoughts…
The answer. Connection. Human connection.
Humans crave personal connection, we want to be wanted. Loved. To bond with others. To share our journey, it is an incessant need, part of our hard wiring. Helping us stretch, grow and heal.
What fascinated me so much about this revelation was that it’s not a new concept to us. But keeping human connection in mind whilst delving into addiction can make all the difference to if we stay an addict or shake it off (props T Swizzle).
So what else can this revelation help with?
‘Oh the places you will go!’ sounds loudly in my head.
I want to use this key to conquer the world with love. To stare my fear in the face and believe I can make a difference in humanity, to step into the unknown. To love where it is easy to be indifferent, to teach where it is easy to dismiss, to guide where it is easy to let it be lost. I just found the next brick in my path. Thank you universe.
