"I am a part of all that I have met." 
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson ~

Everything that matters is connected. As soon as I start to separate and quantify things like productivity, personal growth, compassion, love, integrity, and wholeness, I realize that they are all inextricably inner related, and that one cannot exist without the other, just as we, as individuals cannot, and do not, exist without each other. We are related at a core level to our fellow man.
     And this is good news. It means that we are stronger, wiser, and bolder than we thought; that we have resources beyond our imagining, and that we are vast beyond measure. What a comfort in this- to know that being kind is also being productive, that sharing through conversation is also creating possibilities in life, that living clean is also growing in spirit, and that opening our hearts is also serving the world.

All is connected, and all is one. I begin anywhere and affect everything.
