Are we connected?
Let me count the ways.
How can I?

Yes, we share the same time,
And galaxy.

We are all fixed in the now
And here.

Only our thoughts and imaginings
Seek beyond.
But even our thoughts
Are anchored here and now
With us.

We are one, didn’t you know?
Spinning and whirling
In constant movement,
For all time,
Even as we rest.

Our ball of dirt, Earth,
Is part of the far-flung cosmic dust
Of the universe

All that I am
Or can imagine,
Is less than a glimmer
In the timeless, limitless
Light of Being.

We require connection,
Are eternally connected,
And we cannot separate.
Each of us
Essential to the All.

My attempts to describe you
Define me.
My thoughts on you
Reveal me.
I am
In relation
To how I see you.

Our differences
Have no permanence.
We are energy
In a field of energy.
All is energy.

Only from the most myopic
Point of view
Are we different.
Are we different?
You and I share
the same conditions,

The human race, living beings, earth,
The solar system, the Milky Way,
The universe,
All one… Connected.
