It is our nature to be in this together and to know it – somewhere in the back of our minds – in spite of what we might be told or sold – or even believe consciously. Unconnected, we are really only partly alive – connected we are whole. We are like aspen trees – who have mistakenly thought that since we look like many trees, that is the truth – but under the ground, our root system is one – we are fully alive when we are connected because we are, we were always, part of one another.
