Connectedness

You can’t escape it.  You are connected.  Everything about you in this world is about your relationship to it.  Relate poorly (denying the connections) and there is a sense of disconnect or brokenness, maybe lonliness.  Relate well and things feel fine.

Note:  I didn’t say you ARE disconnected or that they ARE fine.  The feelings are just on top…indicators of how we are living in this connectedness.

So..nothing profound here.  I just think we need to be reminded that we are not, have never been islands.  We are not, have never been “self-sufficient”.  We have always been in community, always dependent on others, always fed by and feeding our relationships.

Don’t deny it.  Swim. Nurture your relationships.  Engage the world around you. Live.
