When we aren’t near to our own hearts, we may go some distance to try to find connection.
We might travel the world.
We might get compulsively busy or drunk.
We might settle for a long-distance relationship.
We might quickly jump into sex with someone we really don’t know.
Or, we might return to our truest heart – the one in our own chest.
When we are complete within ourselves, then we don’t need to go very far to find connection. Loving ourselves, we can be open to love very close to us. The nearest of the near; the dearest of the dear.
