Life's Jigsaw - Interconnected

Life is like a jigsaw puzzle. Each little piece is an aspect of our journey through it. And when at last we find that last piece and fit it into place, we eventually see the meaning of this life.


UBC Day 10
The I Piece - Interconnected

My belief is that all of life is interconnected so it is vital to all of our well being that we keep out mind, body and spirit healthy.

The Upanishads (ancient texts of the Hindu religion) say

When a blade of grass is cut, the whole Universe quivers

I came across this many many years ago but at the time it made no sense to me. But as my spiritual understanding grew, the quote started to make perfect sense.

All of life is interconnected. That's why collective consciousness is so powerful. All our actions affect each other. There are no chance encounters or chance events. All of life is part of a great plan. The great epics of India, The Ramayana, The Mahabharata, The Puranas (Shiva Purana, Vishnu Purana) depict how life is connected, how karma and dharma (duty) play a part and influence the current life we are experiencing. 

The words of Elton John's song Can you feel the love tonight, illustrate this in a nicer way

There's a time for everyone if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours.
(In the context of my illustration, star-crossed = spiritual)

If we look at each life as individual aspects of a complete kaleidoscope, we can imagine how just one small turn moves us all to a new pattern. We can't move one aspect and not impact the rest.

I try to remember when I feel negative emotions that I am affecting others. I does not mean me, it means us, interconnected.

Wishing you all a twist of that kaleidoscope that brings you good things
