Look at any chart or map and it appears as if land is separated by water, boundaries, lines and distances but they are illusions because air, water, distance actually join our world to Nature. And so do land masses underneath oceans and seas. Icebergs, hard-packed water crystals, are part of a frozen, once a part of a glacier, now a melting, floating mass of cold fresh water. Even salt water molecules was once fresh from rain clouds. Evaporation is part of a process that takes the salt out and produces fresh water. We are all mostly water are we not? Even our universe is a collection of seemingly separate parts; millions of planets, moons, stars, comets and galaxies - all part of a much greater whole. So too are humans a small portion of a race of beings. Separation is an illusion based on human's limited vision and perspective. Aren't we and every living being and every inanimate object but a speck of dust of the Universe?
As I returned alone a few days ago to the Florida I left behind four months earlier, I felt both my connections and disconnections. And when I returned to my writing, I re-read this posting on connection I published about 4 years ago. Apparently, I gravitated to this topic to remind me of what I had forgotten. And in so doing, I came across a Pathwork Lecture entitled The Human Predicament of Desire for, and Fear of, Closeness which I found not only profound and insightful, relevant and applicable to my life.
