Don’t forget the humanity

Connecting with Rachel Naomi Remen (RNR) again as I start my day…

As someone trained in science and research methodology, I believe in the value of being objective.

AND, as I grow older (hopefully, wiser) I see the space for emotional connection and compassion, the beauty of opening to our humanity.

Objectivity separates us from the life around us and within us.”  RNR

I’m not advocating for one or the other, just to opening to the possibility of BOTH being quite a magnificent thing. There’s a place for everything.

Objectivity is not whole.” RNR

Wholeness needs compassion and humanity.


For other posts inspired by Rachel Naomi Remen:

Belief traps or frees us * We can remember our wholeness any time * Stories touch common humanness * Joy radiates * Mystery and wonder * There’s an elephant here * Trusting life

Thanks to Radiating Blossom for the inspiring photos, poems, and quotes you share!
