In her book "The Eloquence of Living" Vimala Thakar discusses relatedness.
Here is a beautiful quote from page 17:
"You stand at the seashore perhaps knee-deep in water observing the skies, the wide horizons, the openness.
You listen to the birds; they are singing for their own joy.
You listen and the sounds do something to you.
Its a happening.
The only requirement is to be there.
In the simplicity of your being, communion takes place.
You are not seeking, but something is bestowed on you, something touches you at all levels".
