Everything is Connected

All things that exist
Are connected to each other
In ways we cannot see or know

And subtle waves
That run through existence
Carry messages from everything
To everything else

If you pull on one piece
Of this mesmeric tapestry
The effect nearby will be great
And further away
It will become less and less obvious

And equally, we imagine ourselves separate
From each other
But we are connected in the same way
Each of us affecting the rest
Like an enormous family

If only we could understand this one thing
We may be able to restore some sanity
To humanity

Alas, I fear the worst,
That this simple understanding
Is out of reach
For most
And we must blunder on in our self deception
And suffering.
