Basic human contact---------


Basic human contact - the meeting of eyes, the exchanging of words - is to the psyche what oxygen is to the brain. If you’re feeling abandoned by the world, interact with anyone you can.

  • Martha Beck


That was very lovely. Very true.


it’s a mistake;
i understand the impulse,
but what about the yogis who go off into caves for years at a time.
why do they do it? what are they pursuing?
they are cutivating a reservoir of unborn life,
a beautiful and magical thing,
and from their point of view, the rest of the world,
with their living close together, and interaction, word ex changing, eyes meeting,
well, they say we’ve really lost our way down here.


i love to be alone in a forest , in nature if i did not see another human for the rest of my days it would be peaceful.
but i understand those who need human interaction.
take care
