How to Connect More Deeply with Others
How to Connect More Deeply with Others
Metaphysical Mind #117
Thanks for tuning in to this issue of Metaphysical Mind in which we will discuss ways to connect more deeply with others. During this time of rapidly-advancing technology, the importance of connection–to nature and to ourselves–cannot be overstated.
This issue contains some powerful quotes, an infographic created to explain how to increase one’s likability, and an article written by Owen Waters.
“Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.”
–Paul J. Meyer
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
Enchantment – Increase Likability
By increasing your likability through the directions provided above, you will be able to connect more deeply with others. Furthermore, as you genuinely love yourself more and more, you will naturally include more of these actions in each of your daily interactions.
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do”
–Edward Everett Hale
“I think we are bound to, and by, nature. We may want to deny this connection and try to believe we control the external world, but every time there’s a snowstorm or drought, we know our fate is tied to the world around us.”
— Alice Hoffman
The Secret of Personal Magnetism by Owen Waters
When people open their hearts to unselfish, unconditional love, a whole new world of possibilities opens. Rather than spending effort avoiding the selfishness of others, they take time to make sure that the way they choose to serve society is done in the best way possible. When people can trust others to treat each other with love and respect rather than as competitors, then everyone gains.
As heart-centered awareness grows and blooms within society, people’s primary focus will shift away from service to self and towards service to others. When it does, the world will transform out of all recognition.
But you don’t have to wait for all of society to catch up. In both your personal and professional dealings with people, you have a reputation, and it is fed by word-of-mouth recommendation. Build your reputation as someone who tends to give more than is expected of them, and you will find yourself becoming increasingly popular in both your business and personal lives. People respond to heartfelt action and, as they say, what goes around comes around.
Action and reaction are opposite and equal in all types of thought and action. Your heartfelt action, by automatic reaction, will create a heartfelt reality among you and the people who are attracted to your energy. When you operate mainly out of a heart-centered frequency, you will notice that people are attracted to you in all aspects of your life. Friends, lovers, professional associates; everyone will be attracted to your magnetic personality.
Personal magnetism has been one of the great mysteries of life simply because, in the past, so few people have operated from that heart-centered frequency of awareness on a routine basis. However, it’s really no secret. It’s just one of those common-sense facts of life.
The secret of personal magnetism is that the more you unconditionally love people, the more they love you.
You don’t have to make a big deal out of it. You don’t have to stand there like some transmitter beacon, radiating huge amounts of heart energy. Top stage performers do, but you don’t. You can be very quiet about it and everyone will be quietly drawn to you. Everyone of a similar nature, that is. Everyone who appreciates kindness and a truly warm, genuine smile.
In other words, you’ll attract the very best of friends.
There’s nothing more attractive than a warm smile from a person who quietly radiates a sense of unconditional love for themselves and all others.
This was an excerpt from “Love, Light, Laughter: The New Spirituality” written by Owen Waters, which is available both as a paperback and a downloadable e-book, at: http://www.infinitebeing.com/ebooks/love.htm
In order to connect more deeply with others, one must cultivate self-love through awareness practices such as meditation. How much you like yourself determines how much you love others; and this is what determines how much others like you.
Only once you know yourself, can you learn how much you love yourself. The way to knowledge of self is through developing awareness (to What-Is).
Once again, by loving yourself you will naturally show love to others and this will make you dramatically more likable.
Through connecting more deeply with others it becomes possible to rediscover the oneness of humanity. Our unity is shown through actions of love for one’s self and others.
We are all One. Remember that, and you will show love to others.
By showing love, you are connecting more deeply.
