The Paradox of Self-Connection

Reclaim You

We think of a sturdy self-connection as being beneficial. And that’s true.

But self-connection as such, as a sturdy self-connection, is kind of a paradox.

Sturdiness implies something solid and strong. But the twist here is that a sturdy and strong self-connection is built on constant growth and deepening. Unfurling and emerging. Examining and exploring.

The more you do these things in service of you, the stronger you get. The stronger you get, the more you evolve (and vice versa) and the deeper your self-connection becomes. The only way to keep this happening, is to keep going.

Interesting, huh?
