I agree that in general we are connecting more at head level than at heart level. We live in a competitive and consumerist society and although there is a latent desire for meaning, for truth and purpose, it is very difficult to hear their sound let alone find them, among the rush, the noise, the fears and the doubts. The word ‘heart’ is also a little discredited: too touchy-feely, too sweet, too soft, too feminine. For all the genuine wonders that are there for us to discover, our focus is often on what gives us a competitive edge, what help us have more, be more, what make us more visible and desirable and what will protect us better – because in this fast world, we feel more vulnerable and lonely than ever. I admit in all honesty that I am not immune to it, both as a parent and as a person.
