…”she connects the importance of using our hands with the way in which we understand and find value in ourselves and in others. There’s something so honest and pure about her thought — that we gain a deeper, more meaningful relationship with our own humanity and our greater world by using our hands.”
I wanted to share this post from the OnBeing blog. I was deeply touched by Renate Hiller’s words. I agree with her in that we have, at times, lost our connection to each other, the earth and spirit by not using our hands as technology becomes more and more commonplace. Whether used to create, to heal, to touch, to hold, our hands, as editor Trent Gilliss states, grounds us.
Engage with your hands. Put down the technology. Make something. Dig in the dirt. Clasp them together. Shake your hands in the air like you just don’t care!
