These days, digital gadgets and devices purport to keep us connected, to make us available 24/7, and to keep us no more than a few taps of a screen away from one another. But is there another, deeper way to feel connected? And why does that type of connection matter so much? The inspiring roster of speakers joining us on our 2018 Your Soul Awakening cruise have a few ideas.
Enneagram teacher Rosemary Hurwitz believes that connectedness is love, and without it, we suffer. “Connectedness matters because we feel safe, loved, supported and alive when connected to the One Spirit. Conversely, without that connection, we may feel isolated and stressed.”
Intuition University founder and top DailyOm contributor Sara Wiseman thinks that connectedness to the Divine is what brings us peace. “When we connect with ourselves at the soul level, we are healed, released, comforted—we have the sense of coming home. It is here that we find the peace we’ve been searching for. For example, if you spend your whole life drinking soda, you drink a lot but you are never quenching your thirst. What you really desire is a glass of pure water. When we try to connect spiritually with worldly things, it’s the same: we can’t ever quench our thirst. Yet when we connect with the Divine, we have the feeling that we have finally found what we’ve been seeking.”
World peace artist Andrea Smith regards connection as crucial to feeling like a true part of humanity. “By connecting intimately and honestly with another, we reveal our own inner weaknesses and strengths. By connecting, we are reminded that we are all human, more alike than different, and that we have the same feelings at different times.”
Former TV writer/producer and cofounder of Sedona World Wisdom Days, Jerry Gilden believes that connecting to the Divine “gives us a sense of belonging and purpose. Every species has the desire to be connected to its soul consciousness.”
In a world rife with distractions that continue to pull us apart from one another, connectedness reverses the course and brings us closer to each other as well as to our true Spirit nature. Join us on our 2018 Your Soul Awakening cruise next February to learn how to develop a deep capacity for connection in all its forms.
