Spread #59- Happy Interdependence Day July 4, 2009Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
On this fourth day of July and also my man’s birthday, I choose to celebrate interdependence. Independence is good, but interdependence, better, as it relates to reliance on one another to achieve a better life to all, within one’s family, community, city, state, country, continent, and most importantly these days, within our globe. In terms of self-expression, which seems somehow to tie to everything that matters to me, a devotion to come out of seclusion and create in inclusion will take care of our individual needs and the needs of others as far from us as they may be.
“We do not live independently of one another but are deeply intertwined. Like the proverbial butterfly deep in the Amazon, who by flapping his wings affects the weather patterns halfway around the globe, everything we do sends out waves of effects in a seamless pattern of interbeing. Many of us long to bring the awareness of interconnectedness to the foreground of our experience, to celebrate and give expression to the web of relations.” –Nina Wise
Here is to Interdependence!
