Tip#135: We Are All Connected - Facebook - Powder
Sometimes our differences can stand in the way of making meaningful connections with people. But when you focus on our commonalities, no matter how small, it can open yourself up to a window of amazing opportunities anywhere in the world.
It's been a long winter here in Toronto with more snowstorms then I can remember. I've heard that we haven't had this much snow since the 1950's and it's still not over. At times I've felt confined to the comfort of my live/work home but have been making the most of being indoors.
This time period has helped me to focus on exploring new avenues of helping motivate others. With cold winds howling outside my windows I've spent much time exploring the internet resources. The internet continues to astound me with its unlimited opportunities for connecting with others both professionally and personally.
It took some time but I finally see how fun and powerful Facebook is for staying connected with friends and for meeting new friends on a global level. During this long winter I've used Facebook to explore its features and unexpected benefits.
I've communicated with a Toronto friend traveling to London who had posted photos of his trip during his travels on his Facebook page. It amazed me to instantly experience his adventures seeing the airports and places he was eating at and people he was meeting in London.
I also have new friends in South Africa, Sweden and Russia and was thrilled hearing about what life is like there while the skies in Toronto were blowing with snow. There are also 100's of groups you can join with unlimited topics that will connect you with other like-minded people. For example, I've joined movie related groups and even groups for chocolate lovers!
This global connectedness reminds me of the movie, Powderand an important message from the film's hero. His name is Powderbecause he is an albino whose mother was struck by lightening while he was in her womb. This allowed him to utilize energy on a profound level like healing others and move objects with his mind. Powder'saccelerated awareness allowed him to see that everyone on the planet was already connected on a higher level. Most people just choose not to see this.
Other movies that explore this connectedness are: Phenomenon; I Heart Huckabees
So believe and remember we are all connected. This is a great step towards realizing your abundant opportunities for making meaningful relationships anywhere on our planet. The internet has become a powerful metaphor for showing how connected we already are to each other.
