Everything Is Interconnected - Meditation


We see variety in the world; different looking people and objects. But, going a little deeper within each form on the physical level, we find all are made up of atoms.

It is only the outer forms in the combinations of atoms into molecules into systems into working forms, that we see as different looking, and may perceive as separate from ourselves.

On the finer and inner planes, what sustains one atom sustains all atoms, and that energy has different names depending on one's point of view.

This meditation is to reflect on how our lives are connected and interconnected while we have these seemingly separate bodies.

Choose a favorite place to meditate and sit up straight. Fold your hands in your lap or place them palms up or palms down on your thighs. Close your eyes.

Begin even regular breathing, such as breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; breathe in 2 counts, and continue this even pattern without actually saying the counts. Continue this pattern for about 2 minutes to relax and harmonize your body and mind.

In this physically relaxed but mentally alert state, visualize yourself walking down a busy street. People are milling about doing errands, shopping, going to work or school, visiting friends, and a myriad of other reasons for being there.

Appearing independent, all are upon closer investigation interconnected.

One may be the grocery shop owner that provides a place to buy food. Another may be a farmer growing that food; another may sew our clothing in a factory; another may be a school teacher; another a truck driver getting merchandise from here to there, and so on.

What seems like many people doing different things, going different ways are really acts of serving others, and being served by others.

Materially, the forest trees give wood for furniture; the trees are fed by the sun and rain and soil they stand in; they may provide homes for birds and in turn the birds droppings may fertilize the soil surrounding the tree helping provide lush foliage.

The natural world is interconnected within itself and with people too.

Reflecting on these things, take some time to plan how you can use your time to better nurture people and the world - adding to world harmony and peace.

Take a deep breath, stretch and go forth with the cozy family feeling of being part of the larger world we call home.

I invite you to join me in a daily world peace group cyber meditation. Click the article here to read about it.
