Connection and Reconnection

Adjusting for dissonance and answering the big questions of life, the Universe, and Everything.

What are you looking for?

I think almost everyone I know has either looked for a purpose and meaning to their life — or they still are. In some cases, we continue to explore what all we are capable of because we see that there isn’t necessarily one singular purpose or meaning to our lives.

Human evolution and the disconnect it causes

Lots of people believe in the ideas of fate, destiny, and a single grand and glorious purpose to their life. Why are you here? This question has driven society pretty much since we evolved to tool-using globe-straddling community-building social animals.

Connection is less literal than you think

When you read these words, you are connecting with me. You see what I have put out to the world, and you are engaging with my idea and taking it in. From there, you may reject it in whole or part, or thoroughly absorb it and feel like I am right inside your head speaking your language.

Reconnecting with the world

When our ancestors were hunter-gatherers, they knew the Earth. They foraged for edible plants, followed the game, and understood signs and portents. They could tell when the weather was changing, or a storm was coming via how the animals around them reacted or the pressure in the air shifted.

We are all one

Like it or not, despite all the differences between us — we are all one.

Mindfulness connects

Mindfulness exists on three levels. On the surface, it is your thoughts, feelings, actions, and intentions. To be mindful is to be conscious and aware of these in the here-and-now.
