Physical and Emotional Benefits of Human Touch

The human touch is one that has literally been a subconscious part of us since we have been in existence. As a matter of fact, it is practically impossible to not come in physical contact with people, especially if you are in close proximity to them. 

The sensation of human touch is used for various purposes including attracting attention or just for the very reason that touching is ingrained into our subconscious.

There are various angles or aspects to touch but one that stands out is its effect on physical relationships and emotions.

The Psychology of the Mystic ...

“One of the elders used to say: In the beginning when we got together we used to talk about something that was good for our souls, and we went up and up, and ascended even to heaven. But now we get together and spend our time in criticizing everything, and we drag one another down into the abyss.”    ~Thomas Merton, The Wisdom of the Desert, LXI, p.78
