I have been reflecting on how what has been shared—in this kind of Heartfelt Communication with one another—has felt so good for me. I’m thinking of the recent sense of connection that speaks from direct experience that has awakened something in each of the lives that are giving voice—or describing—their direct experience of something real and something worthwhile for them to communicate with themselves and to share with each other.
I remember that I would often say, “That touches me. Your words—or your voice—touches me deeply.”
So I’m wondering, what do I mean by that? What does that mean? “What you share here touches me deeply.” And I can feel that right now. In my heart. In my belly. In my thighs. It’s a kind of warmth, a kind of loving and a kind of wanting that seems to touch a kind of an awakening of a desire in me that’s already there.
It’s not that desire of ‘you have something that I want’ and perhaps can never have, or feel kind of jealous in some way, or I’ll try to make it happen too—that kind of familiar response.
No—this is something deeper. It awakens the desire in me that is already…desirable.
Yeah. I know that place. I love that place. And you remind me of this place that I have in me too. It may be similar to the story—connected to your story. But it’s clearly very much my own. My own so much that I appreciate that you have given me something back to me—to my life—because you have shared something from your life. And I feel so grateful to you for bringing me back to me and what I desire so much in myself that feels supported in that heartfelt desire. That’s already emerging. That’s already happening. That’s already moving in that direction.
Yes! I like that.
