Weekend refelctions - Mystery of connection

I spent the weekend camping in nature's beauty and bounty with very close friends and Saturday night we started talking about the mystery of why we were friends. One of us a 49 yr old TN man, retired USN, submarines, whitewater raft and quest guide, muliltiple relational experiences. One of us a 39 yr old woman, raised in NY city, Doctor of Chinese medicine, multiple relational experiences, also a guide. One of us a 42 yr old man, VP with major brokerage, raised in CO, very limited relational experience. And the last a 40 yr old woman, also raised in CO, horse show judge and rider with limtied realtional experience.
On first meeting none of us had felt any attraction or desire to be with the other but circumstances led to a deeper knowing. At that level there was a mysterious and abiding connection. We have been friends for a long time now and the discussion I beleive can be summarized as follows:
If you are willing to move beyond the surface, something happens. It is part of a deeper mystery, the kind that catwalks over the marrow of our spines, the kind that wakes awe deep in our minds and makes our hearts reverberate with its sacred tones. It is a connection that we may experience, but only briefly at any given time. The resulting connection is one that is indulged nor shared precipitously because of its intensity and mystery. Often there is no conscious understanding, only the certainty that tour parallel lies along the path to the understanding of that mystery. There is a magnetism to that seeking which, for some, cannot be ignored, only taken in small doses. This begins to touch on some of those answers we have not been able to verbalize but there is more we want to know.

That is also why I am risking the reaching out and wanting more of those connections. I will never be satisfied with how many but I am also aware that even five or six in a lifetime at any given time is a lot.
