On Interdependence and Interbeing
This meditation has resonated with me so much and I feel such a kinship with the longing, reflection, gratitude and joy in your essay. I turn 40 in February. I feel like my tensions in midlife also have to do with a deep desire for connection, authenticity, and true interconnected communal love. Even though the details of my life tic more traditional boxes than what you are describing here, the longing of my heart is for the same things that you describe and I also feel them with a real urgency too. Thank you for sharing your wisdom here. Grateful that our journeys overlapped for a brief moment fourteen years ago and grateful to have stayed connected via these strange and complicated digital spaces. Sending you love and lots and good energy today and always.
