“All things come out of the one and the one out of all things.” - Heraclitus
All things are woven together and share common bonds. Nothing in this world is separate. The more I separate the more I suffer. Everything is somehow tied together both outside and within. Truly we are all interdependent or connected by many strands of chemical, biological, and psychic common denominators.
Observe how water, earth, air and other essentials interface sustaining us. Everything feeds and recycles from another. Such an exploration reveals how we all are interconnected.
Various truths come up from this inquiry. First we are not separate selves. Second that all things are transient and finally everything is somehow tied to everything else. We all share this mutual bond. Find how these strands intertwine. We merge as a greater collective organism, bonded by mutual interlocking elements that give us life. Even the non-living elements are essential ingredients in this wonderful spider’s web we all reside in.
Seeing the nature of all our relationships directly ties us closer together. For example, all of life depends upon and inter-changes water. The water cycle like the carbon cycle further extends our amazing shared time here on this terra firma.
When I see how we all are so inter/inner-connected this insight leads me to a greater joy. By illuminating this truth of our shared unity I find courage to overcome many fears. Also I relate to how all things are sacred since there is whole not just a sum of the parts.
Beholding my greater connection allows me to delight in this fantastic mystery. With mirth and curiosity this web touches all facets of my life, family, friends, and beyond. Wisdom emerges from this discovery of my connectivity.
When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty - John Muir
