We all are connected

We are all interconnected

We are all One Spirit, we are all interconnected. These interconnections are like filaments in a spider's web. Everything is connected to everything else in an infinite Web of relationships.

We are all connected to and dependent on each other. There are obvious connections, like the one between me and the farmer who grew the wheat that became the bread that I eat. Or the one between me and the worm whose little tunnels air the soil of the field where that wheat grew.

But the relationships are also more subtle. I believe that our relationship with each other is also emotional and spiritual. I believe that there will be pain and emotional distress in the human community, as long as we don't acknowledge our intimate relationship with the Earth and begin to put right some of the damage we have done.

Yet on the other hand I also believe that we humans, individually, are powerless to correct that damage until we have healed from some of the damage that has been done to us. We have to heal our own pain inflicted on us by our culture or the circumstances of our lives in order to become clear, transparent enough to become a window and let the light through.

I believe that his healing can happen through a more conscious relationship with Spirit all around us and with the cycles of Naure. These cycles are made explicit on the Wheel of Life.
