What if you could communicate with anyone?
.
And by communicate, I truly mean be heard and understood. Not only to communicate with people who speak different languages, but to be felt be anyone. What if we could become "intimate" on a deeply human level with anyone? What a superpower to have!

We all have people we resolate, or "vibe" with. But I want to vibe with everyone - despite where they're from, what they believe/look like, or what they've done-- however "horrible." Espeiclly now in this political/social climate it's so important that we find ways to put our beliefs aside and just see another human, flawed and fabulous just as they are. We're all trying to figure thing out here, and we only have a little while. I try to see another through their own adventure through life, childhood, love and loss. And maybe I can begin to understand why they believe what they believe.

I want to feel the soul of anyone without hesitation. Whether you retract from the person in an expensive suit, or the hippie with dreads, or the homeless person on the street... most of us retract in some ways from people that seem/act/look different. And I dream of a moment where we are in a continual state of leaning in to what is foreign. Some folks are better at this than others. But what IF there is someone, somewhere that has the extraordinary gift and superpower of getting along with everyone. It's a weird and amazing idea I think; that is, to "get real" and feel anyone you encounter. It makes me smile just imagining the intimacy and depth of relation if this way of communication and connection was just the way things are. Maybe one day.

How can you connect more fluidly with those who seem most unlike you?
