We Are Interconnected

We are interconnected. And whether we shake hands or hold hands matters not. Just like the delicately woven spider web, there is a filament, a very fine thread that connects us all. Never has it been more apparent than now that everything we do affects another living thing, be it a human, an animal or our planet. This moment in time is an opportunity for us to rise up and to rethink the way that we’ve been doing things.

And from where I’m sitting, I see many, many people rising to the occasion. Local leaders, educators, small business operators, and everyday folks working on the fly to come up with new and innovative ideas! As Deepak Chopra said, “Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.”

This is one more reason to behold the power that we each possess! I am referring to the power of the organ that is the supercomputer running the show- our brain! We have hardly unleashed the full power of our brain, but science is beginning to show us that we are capable of so much more!

So what can you do during this tumultuous time of fear and uncertainty? How can you support your brain and actually harness it for healing and growth? Never has there been a time when self-care has been more important! The self-care that we refer to when we talk about The Four Seeds of Self-Care- sleep, nutrition, exercise, and meditation.

“Our individual well-being is intimately connected both with that of all others and with the environment within which we live.... Our every action, our every deed, word, and thought, no matter how slight or inconsequential it may seem, has an implication not only for ourselves, but for all others, too.” Dalai Lama
