We are in this life on earth together! All life forms are inseparable – from the mosses under your feet to to the magnificent trees that encircle this earth with their roots and branches, to the winged creatures, the scaly and furry ones.
No matter how you try to weed, separate, segregate, put distance between, incarcerate, deport, wall off, ignore, eradicate; we are all one in the web of creation and cannot ever be separated.
Do you feel that you stand alone? Perhaps it feels safer to be on one side of a wall or border while “they” are on the other side. Perhaps you with the weed killer spray bottle in your hand feel that certain life forms are not acceptable and must be eliminated.
Do you not know and feel your energies overlap and intermingle with all other living beings, interweaving and creating new patterns? This is the essence of the web of all things, the energy of which we are made expanding from our physical centers becoming finer and finer the further from the body, beyond our capacity to see and sense.

You choose! You can create thoughts and take actions which strengthen this magnificent web every living creature participates in, every atom of soil, every blade of grass, every tree, every insect, every drop of water, every reptile, every human being. In strengthening the web, you strengthen yourself!
You can also choose actions and thoughts and ideas that weaken the web of all things with doubt, fear, the illusion of powerlessness, the illusion of separateness. But remember this: In weakening our shared existence you weaken yourself, for all things are one in this universe.
Separation from others, from nature is not possible. You have never been, nor will ever be separate from any other thing.
I ask you to choose life and know your connection to all creation.
