For a few months now I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a book. Now, my writing skills certainly need sharpening and to be very honest, I really don’t have the patience for writing. There is something though that drives me to write this book and that is the unique ability to relate to absolutely every thing (words separated on purpose). Somehow, someway, whether it be a person, animal, plant, or even my environment, I immediate gain a deep sense of connection with it/them. This paradoxical connection I like to call – relatability. Does this make sense to anyone else? It is the act of infinite connection with every layer around you – either one to one or one to many.
In this book I will try and deconstruct this ability into difference relatable pieces. For some reason a lot of the themes start with the letter C, so I’m going with that for now:
Communication – how do we communicate with other friends, strangers or even animals. Are there forms of communication that we are waiting to be discovered?
Connection – Feeling the energy of your surrounding and identifying where that energy is coming from.
Control – Either taking control, or relinquishing it. There is such a fine line on when to use each one.
Compassion – the most important aspect of relatability –
Contrast – Trying different experiences that are out of your comfort zone. WAAAYY out of your comfort zone. You need to explore the worst day of your life in order to know what the best day feels like.
Community – Understanding our ecological surroundings. How does a community form and knowing what impact we have on our communities.
Co-existence – If you were one of the last humans on earth, what would you do to survive?
Cooperation – Understanding that two heads are better than one – four hands are better than two – in working towards a common goal.
Collaboration – How to work together to solve problems. (Thanks for the suggestion Mark!)
