Hugging is akin to eating comfort food, also like being rocked, and oh how we all love that! Hugs are joy incarnate, a tangible lesson in being AT-ONE. Whenever two people embrace, the Universe smiles and Love is realized, solar plexus to solar plexus. The effects? Healing, nurturing, being able to go inside each other without penetrating the boundaries of the flesh. Indeed, we could equate hugging with a soul to soul rendezvous ~ an alignment opportunity that goes far beyond the two entities in question.” ~ Rudolph Valentino
