Helmut wrote me this text as a PM. I think it's so beautiful that I'm happy to share it with you:
"Hugs have a healing power that we still don't fully know. Hugs heal hate. Hugs heal resentment. They heal fatigue. They heal sadness. When we hug, negative attachments are released. We lose for a moment the things that hold us have caused us to lose our calm, our peace and access to our soul. When we hug, we strengthen our defenses and let the other come closer to our heart. The arms open and the hearts cuddle in a unique way. And Nothing like a hug... Hugs say "I love you" Hugs say "It's good to have you here" Hugs say "Help me" Hugs say "See you soon" Hugs... When we hug, are we more than two: we are family, we are plans, we are possible dreams." (Alexander Fischer)
If you're not alone, you can try a few times today! Have lots of fun with it!
