the art of inquiry

By JoY, writer from thethirdspace community

Everyday images and sounds of devastation from around the globe open our hearts and senses to desperate circumstances of people we have never met.

Feelings of compassion and empathy grow strong and when the mechanism is in place, we send support of any kind in an effort to soften the human tragedy occurring in real time.

Polarizing energies affect relations on all fronts through misunderstandings often fueled by opposing political and economic views.


Could these invisible forces of shared human tragedy be doing more than touching our hearts?

Could we be restructuring our collective nervous system?

Is our human response to tragedy and pain directing the way to our next evolutionary upgrade? 


Something of magnitude is unfolding.


What sense-making can result?


Is this an opportunity to:


Appreciate how much more deeply humans are entangled empathically?

Forge new complex synaptic connections through our hearts and forward to new levels of collective integration and wisdom?

Enhance our ability to communicate and improve our chances of uniting?


Together, we have the ability to hold more experiences and remain in a frequency of love.


How do we share these insights with others, our business partners, friends, and family?

How do we show that we understand, we care, and see the greater possibility?


Perhaps in a letter?


Dear friends,

We may not share each others opinions or experiences.
Yet, we are connected heart-to-heart.

You are the superhero friend of my childhood comic books.

Everything was so simple when superhero magic arrived on the scene.

We instantly knew the right actions and quickly got the job done. And how we laughed!  

It is my vision that our collective magic will result in greater understanding. And that our fun and light-hearted creative ideas will solve all challenges. 

With love,


What insights are present as you open your heart to the world around you?
