I was visiting my mother yesterday afternoon, and she asked me to take the water that she had purchased in preparation for the storm, but didn’t end up needing. I did not need a load of bottled water either, but didn’t mind taking it for her. This morning I opened my emails and there was one from a friend who is going to New York City this weekend with a truck-load of supplies. One of the items he was asking for was bottled water.
Sometimes we think that we are all alone. We forget that underneath our apparent differences we are all One. We are all connected to each other, to every other living thing, to all of life (seen and unseen) by this invisible substance called God (or Universal Mind, Subconscious Mind, Life, Spirit or Love).
We are here for a brief moment in time to experience being human, and to wake up and remember that we are Divine.
“But I’ll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything.” Alan Watts
