elizabeth hechtman Posted about 2 years ago Do you find it difficult to engage in intellectual conversations with people in general? Yes, though sometimes I'm so happily surprised. Like last weekend when we had a friend over to dinner. We sat eating and talking for nearly three hours about positive thinking, cancer, health and the mind, politics and endless other topics that seemed to naturally flow one to the other. We built a deep connected conversation where in the end belonged to all three of us. I think people are so afraid to disagree or to share different points of view because all we do is get polarized. We don't seem to be able to create together with all of our differing opinions. When we can, like last Saturday night, magic happens, worlds open up, lights go off. And we are completed and satisfied by exercising our unique human gift of being the socially creative human beings we were meant to be.
