On an interpersonal level, for two distinct individuals to meet, share, and experience the depths of each other’s emotions is a rare phenomenon. So much human meeting and interactions amount to surface level meeting. Honestly meeting and sharing deep emotions allows two individuals to go deeper into what it means to be a human being. Deeper emotional acceptance and connection allows for deeper person-to-person fusing. Deeper emotional sharing includes a Tong Len connection (giving and receiving). Tong Len connection is the meeting of two individuals where mutuality, synthesis, empathy, and harmony exist. This ability for deep fusion and connection can be transformational for the people involved.
