It’s difficult to see and feel, particularly if you’re not open to and looking for it, but you are directly connected to every living being on this planet, and in this universe.
In fact, you are a unique expression of the entirety of the universe, which, paradoxically, is also fully contained within every part of you.
So it should be no surprise when you see yourself in others’ eyes, ideas, actions, advice, hopes, fears, and dreams.
You are both part and whole, self and selfless, right here and everywhere, alone and connected, all at once.
Don’t cut yourself off from the rest of you.
