Life, as we perceive, is an amalgamation of thousands of miniscule experiences. Human contact, whether in the physical or in the emotional realm is no different. We live our lives oblivious of these involvements and yet get touched by them so deeply. Hundreds of people, meet you in the eye, every week; strangers who would never know, who you would never know and yet there are times when there is feeling of commonness. Some connect to you strangely, some have that same inner calling that you have and you wonder whether they have similar inner thoughts, urging them to reach out.
I wonder what is it that engulfs certain people together? Is it the need, the desire to come together, a curiosity, or an expression of our physiological self. We are bred in social orders which, inherently, encourage people to collaborate, assist, trust and support others; structures adhere to rules wherein people depend on others for a meaningful existence. Life, in itself, evolves as a process, working on a the underlying substance as happiness.
Happiness, therefore, lies right at the core of the driving force that energizes various processes. Connections, (which I alluded to earlier), are one of the several ways which guide ourselves to a sense of fulfillment. The reciprocity of human emotions is powerful enough to serve as a means to achieving it (happiness). We, as humans, have a strong tendency to yearn for reinforcement. Our behavior is moulded to assimilate happiness from reflective feelings accumulated from our experiences. It is this inherent desire that lets people connect, understand, love, like and even hate each other.
It is difficult to imagine someone loving a person who is passive, simply because passivity does not have that nature of reflection. Those who come back at you (either positively or negatively) reassure you and fulfill a need within you to respond. This ignites the passions within for someone you like and equally flaring anger towards a foe.
It is these inner connections which make life interesting, those ambiguous and yet clear concoction of thoughts which place two strangers on a similar pedestal of understanding, associating them through strands of an unknowingly woven entanglement. Emotions are an expression of these associations lighting up your inner self to the world without. Such rendezvous like experiences bring you so close with another soul and yet the whole process seems strangely unforeseen, untold, unfelt manner. It is these myriad, inexplicable experiences that sometimes can energize one’s soul, and could drench one’s inner energies.
