Interconnectedness

Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we’re so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.

-Ram Dass

One World

We are in the midst of an awakening. An awakening into the realization of our power: that not only do we have the power to change what is, but also to create a new reality, one that is compatible with the law of existence as opposed to an existence made to fall in line with contrived human laws.

The law of existence is interconnectedness. Everything touches everything else. Everything affects everything else. There is nothing that is “itself”. Anything you can think of is made up of component parts working together to form something new, which is in turn part of something else. This includes people and societies. There are no islands in the sea of life.

Let’s look at it this way: quarks and other subatomic particles make up atoms, atoms make up molecules, molecules form elements, elements combine to form everything you can physically connect with. We all share these components. We are all made of the exact same material from the same source. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat will all, eventually, will be circulated back into the environment to be used by another organism. When we shake hands or hug or kiss we literally “rub off” on each other. Do I need to mention what happens during sexual intercourse? The point is that we become part of one another, physically. There is no divorcing ourselves from anyone or anything around us. We are inextricably glued together. This is the web of life.

There can be no revolution without evolution. Without a fundamental shift of consciousness there can be no real change. Without the realization that this is “one world” we will continue to compartmentalize ourselves, to divide ourselves by race, gender, sexual orientation and tax brackets. We will continue to be the “haves” versus the “have nots”, the “first world” versus the “third world”. Without an evolution of consciousness this world will not survive.

I believe, however, that the light is starting to creep in. The closed eyes and minds of the world are beginning to open. This is evidenced by the global Occupy movement. People are standing up and realizing that they don’t have to accept what’s being handed to them, that they can effect change and create a system that is inclusive of all, that recognizes and abides by the law of interconnectedness. The revolution is not just about monetary and political concerns, it is about life itself. It is about how we interact with each other and the planet. It is all encompassing. In the end, the revolution is about changing your point of view from “me” to “we”. This is “one world”. If we can’t learn to live together, we will certainly die together.
