At heart, deep holism means a refusal to join the zombie apocalypse— to not be numb, unfeeling, disconnected, on autopilot, unable to feel yourself or others.
— Pip Walker
The other day I intentionally walked barefoot in the grass. I dug my toes into the earth as I walked, I made sure the bottoms of my feet were connecting to the ground. I needed to feel close to nature. I laid out on the grass and felt the sun charge my body. It was important that I just “be.”
No sunglasses to block the shade, no headphones to cancel out the surrounding noise. Just me and my environment.
There was a deep need to FEEL. In this world where so much information and communication becomes distorted, I just wanted to feel something organic. Something that existed for its sake of existing. I wanted to connect to another organism that communicated in a nonverbal way on a soul level. And it was beautiful.
