We are all connected

Here's a wise observation by Michael Lerner in The Politics of Meaning:
A spiritual sensibility encourages us to see ourselves as part of the fundamental unity of all being. If the thrust of the market ethos has been to foster a competitive individualism, a major thrust of many traditional religious and spiritual sensibilities has been to help us see our connection with all other human beings.
Of course, I would say not only human beings but animals and plants and stones as well. I am connected to every star in the heavens and every speck of dust on the earth as well as to every living being. Nothing is isolated or separate. No, not a thing.
