#BlogElul: Seek connections and you will find them #takeaseatmakeafriend
There is something very powerful about contemplating all the ways in which we are connected to everything and everyone else. What arises as we start to trace all the lines? Responsibility, empathy, patience, dedication, determination, desire, awe ... ?
We live in a society that emphasizes independence, liberty, individual choice. But, like the story of the man who drills a hole under his own seat in the boat and cannot understand why his fellow passenger complains... no one is an island. Everything is connected. Meditate on this. Grasping the profound implication of this Truth can transform us.
