The Connectivity Principle

Healing the Wounds of Separation

Foreword by Michael Bernard Beckwith

Increasing our capacity for Connectivity, both individually and collectively, may be the key to our survival.  This book explores the two paradigms of living in and experiencing the world, Separation and Connectivity, and the vast Continuum of Views that spans between them.  It offers the Bridge, a six-element personal system of practice for refining one’s View and increasing our ability to expand our inherent energetic Connectivity.  It also describes a way to safely navigate the Sea of Rules that creates, governs, shapes, and transforms all of our relationships:  personal, community, business, and with modern technology.

The Connectivity Principle is the foundation of my work, which is primarily energy-based.  The Principle states that:

“Everything in the Universe, including all living beings, is energetically related to everything else because of the connectivity of all things to the same Source.  This Principle invalidates the notion of ‘separation,’ and reinforces the universal mandate for human beings to be mindfully tolerant, kind, loving, compassionate, and supportive towards each other, the Earth, and all that is, at all times, with no exceptions.

Reviews of The Connectivity Principle: Healing the Wounds of Separation:

“You hold in your hands a profound invitation: to live your life with the tender heart of a Buddha, a Christ, an earthly pilgrim who has the potential to be a change agent in the world.  I encourage you to read these pages slowly.  Take their wisdom and loving kindness to heart, letting them guide, inspire, and bless your walk as a precious being interconnected in oneness with all other sentient beings.”

Michael Bernard Beckwith, Founder, Agape International Spiritual Center; Author of Spiritual Liberation and Life Visioning

“Stephen Long’s The Connectivity Principle offers us a wide-ranging template for rediscovering the essential connectivity that underlines our existence at multiple levels: with all humanity, with the earth, and with the entire universe. Bringing contemplative insights to bear on ethics, livelihood, community life, business engagements, and technological innovation, this book offers a key to creating a world marked by greater kindness, compassion, and mutual respect—all qualities so necessary if we are to live together peacefully on this beautiful planet.”

“Partial and limited positionalities create the illusions called ‘problems.’ In reality, no such thing as a problem is possible; there is merely what we want and what we don’t want. Suffering is due to resistance.”

David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph. D.


“People suffer because they are caught in their views. As soon as we release those views, we are free and don’t suffer any more.”
