I've always been fiercely independent, and depending on others has been my 'what's worst that could happen'. This morning I suddenly woke up feeling grateful that I depend on so many people every single day - for food, energy, clothes, houses, work, etc. It made me realise that the only way I could be truly independent if I was the only person on the planet. So this dependence means both human connection and human ability to be smart by doing what you can do best and relying on others to do the same.
Deep human connection is ... the purpose and the result of a meaningful life - and it will inspire the most amazing acts of love, generosity, and humanity.
