If it were just as simple as everybody agreeing with you, life would have no difficulties, would it!? But, alas, it doesn't work like that.
Instead, there is – in fact – a need. And, that need is connectivity. Everything is inter-dependent. And, it is really inter-dependence that drives success. Not greed. And, being able to accept the continuity of everything means being able to affect positive, lasting change. Change for the better.
Being resistant to change or continuity hardens the soul. Creates a zombie caught in his or her own self-imposed, separated world, forced – always – to fight off life, as the connectivity threatens to cure the disease of self-protection. Fortunately, even the most violent zombie can be put down.
I am wondering – on this, my one-year anniversary day... - whether the inter-dependence that I have encountered this last year will find any more zombie corners in my own heart, heading into the future. And, I hope so. Because, I'm not sure we always know just how cut off we become. Until we re-join the living.
Life is beautiful.
