Amazing Possibilities!

We Are All Connected

If we reject the challenge to grow in virtue, we fall easily into a

minimalism that manifests in the two great excuses. I have already

mentioned “This is who I am!” We often make this excuse not in celebration

of our authentic self but in defense of a substitute lazy and

defeated self. The second of the great excuses that we use to justify

our self-destructive behavior is “I am not hurting anybody!”

One of the governing principles of the universe is connection. Everything

in creation is connected. When we pollute and scar the earth

by emitting toxins and rape the land of her natural resources, the earth

responds with rising water levels, earthquakes, hurricanes, and harmful

ozone rays. The earth is not retaliating; it is simply trying to heal itself.
