With modem

Connection is the energy that is created between people when they give and receive without judgement.*
(Brené Brown)

Listen to the silence.
It will teach you. It will build strength
Let others share it with you.
It is little to be found elsewhere.**
(Frances Roberts)

For hundreds of thousands of years, humans have been developing the most sophisticated of all modems, making possible connection with one another and our environments, with ourselves and perhaps a god, too.

We have always improved the modem’s receptivity by practising openness over judgement, compassion over cynicism, courage over fear.

(*From Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly.)
(**Frances Roberts, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer.)
