BUILD TO YOUR PILLAR OF CONNECTION
Love, Empathy & Inter-Connection
The gift of the pillar of connection, is in building a direct channel to a source of spiritual nourishment deep within you. A source of nourishment that won’t let you down or judge you. A source that is full, abundant, and overflowing with faith in your ability to accomplish your work in the world. A source of true love and worthiness.
Building the pillar of connection helps you find your inner voice because without a connection to this spiritual source of nourishment, other people’s voices will drown out your own. You will give up your own truth and your own rare intelligence to receive affection and ‘love’ from somebody outside yourself. You will be afraid of conflict and rejection, and you will shut out your inner voice when it is trying to guide you to express your authentic self.
Building a connection to a spiritual source of nourishment and love also allows you to build positive relationships founded on honesty, compassion, and empathy. This is what is meant by having rare intelligence – the ability to create heart-lifting connections while being aware of the same deep longing for love in every soul around you. It means that you will always have words of wisdom, an empathic touch, and heart-felt tenderness to offer people you meet on your path.
People who exemplify this rare intelligence are like Mother Theresa and the Dalai Lama. So deeply connected to love and wisdom in their own being, they know each and every one of us emanate from the same source. But not all people who have developed this pillar are leaders of that magnitude. They are also the people around you every day; the people who organize your neighborhood block parties, or your friends who are learning how to use Non-Violent Communication in their relationships, or possibly the local small business owner who is adopting a collectivist approach to management.
Being in connection to the love-source within you means that all you create in the world is based on love. It means you embody love wherever you go, instead of seeking it wherever you go. It allows you to express yourself honestly and yet compassionately, creating community and harmony rather than conflict. The power of connection is the power of loving presence, where your words, deeds and wisdom flow directly from your inner voice into the world.

What would you do with your life right now if you had unlimited resources and a limitless supply of cash?
What would you set out to accomplish if you knew you couldn’t fail – if a successful outcome was one hundred percent guaranteed (no goal is too lofty)?
What would you want to do with your life if you knew you only had six months to live?
You’re on your death bed, and the most important people in your life are around you. What is the greatest wisdom you’ve gained in your life that you’d want to share?

If your next step is to build your Pillar of Connection, my greatest teacher Thich Nhat Hanh if where to start.
I have never had the privilege of meeting Thich Nhat Hanh in person. But I've spend some time with his Plum village monks and have watched his devoted silent presence in films and video clips. He has devoted his life to teaching the practices and skills that enable each of us to live with intimacy and joy. Any chance to study with him is your chance to connect with a true living Buddha. And to connect with the TRUTH inside yourself.
