Just as I noticed the growing narcissism in our culture in 1989 when I wrote Narcissism and Intimacy, I am noticing now signs of a cosmic shift, a movement toward relationship and connection. Based on what we are learning about the brain as a social organ, the ability of brains to connect without words, the ability of people in groups to “read “ each other, and the ability of early wired-in emotions formed in relationships, it is evident that we cannot NOT be in relationship. The human brain is relational. We are born into relationship and continue relating to the moment we die. The greatest human tragedy is a sense of non-relating.
