A Quote by Carol Shields on connection, distance, and rhythm

He nurtures his connection from a distance...The rhythm is fixed in his life now - a support and distraction, the way in which he confirms his most human feelings.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on projection, thoughts, images, connection, spiritual perspective, life, and oneness is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbor, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods--you have nothing but images. The images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space there is conflict, so what we are going to find out now together is whether it is possible to be free of the space we create, not only outside ourselves but in ourselves, the space which divides people in all their relationships...

J. Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)

A Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen on connection, interaction, listening, giving, and healing

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well~intentioned words.

A Quote by Scott O'Dell on karana, rontu, and connection

That night I stayed in the house. Before I fell asleep I thought of a name for him, for I could not call him Dog. The name I thought of was Rontu, which means in our language Fox Eyes.
 -- Karana (The first time she actually had a "friend" on the island in the 19 years she was stuck there.)

A Quote by Alan Watts on connection, connecting, relationship, relationships, and soul

 As the ocean "waves," the universe "peoples." Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe. This fact is rarely, if ever, experienced by most individuals. Even those who know it to be true in theory do not sense or feel it, but continue to be aware of themselves as isolated "egos" inside bags of skin.

Alan Watts (1915 - 1973)
