🍀 I HAVE PICKED UP THE PIECES 🍀
The words healthy, heal, whole share a common etymology about wholeness. It is in picking up the pieces and making ourselves whole that we find good health and heal.
This includes being in community whether we are face-to-face with each other. Parker Palmer suggested “Community does not necessarily mean living face-to-face with others; rather, it means never losing the awareness that we are connected to each other. It is not about the presence of other people-it is about being fully open to the reality of relationship, whether or not we are alone.”
When we connect with each other, we become whole and belong to community. When we are mindful and attentive of the other, we become whole and belong to community.
