Notice how each breath expands your belly or chest. Feel the air moving in and out of your body. The invisible carbon dioxide you breathe out connects you to the plants and trees. They need your breath to stay alive. The plants and trees are exchanging energy by providing you oxygen – keeping you alive. From the moment you were born; from your first breath to your last; this ongoing - seemingly effortless relationship - is just one way that you are connected to the earth. You are not separate. So celebrate! Celebrate being alive and connected to everything around you.
John Muir said, “When one tugs at a single thing in nature, we find its attached to the rest of the world."
How will remembering that you are connected to everything, affect your next conversation or next decision?
