Life tip #28: Remember that we are all connected


Good Monday! I hope each of you had a splendid weekend!

Lately, I’ve been thinking about how each one of us is connected, regardless of where or who we are in the world. The fact that we are in this same universe connects us. The air and the sky doesn’t cut off somewhere and start anew down the road, the sun and moon are the same everyone sees day after day, we all need water and food to survive (and I don’t mean just humans).

If you don’t already, the next time you do something, think about what the outcome will be. Will you be supporting something cruel? Will your actions harm someone else? If everyone in the world did what you’re doing, would there still be a world left? Just a little something to think about.

I thought this short video by WWF, which I discovered thanks to Kayla of Exquisite Banana, was perfect for today’s life tip. This one is pretty darn cool and cute, too!

P.S. Did you watch the video from a couple weeks ago? Don’t miss it!

Yay, glad you chose to share the video, Eva. That message needs to be passed along.

Haha I love the guy with his hands on his head, looking around and you see the monkey doing the same thing : )

Couldn’t agree more. We’re doing a sermon series at my church called “It’s your call.” about how each choice we make can impact the world for the better or the worse. Same kind of concept. Every decision we make is connected to our own outcome and potentially the outcome of others. It’s so important that we make the right choice.

i love that video, and it’s true – we really are all connected! i don’t personally subscribe to the idea that our souls go through different levels of insects and animals before becoming human, but i definitely believe that all creatures have unique souls within them. i love how respectfully all living things are treated in the buddhist culture. we are all in this world together, and we’re surviving only because of each other {animals, trees, rivers, people} whether we realize it or not.

Ahh, I love it! The video was so cool! I think I liked the part where the kid was layin his head down in school and the tiger was layin his head down also the most! I loved the two mama’s holding their babies though also! It was just too cute.

This was a great message though! No one really thinks about how we are all connected in some way, shape, or form. I know I have never really thought about it.

I know I need to start thinking about the outcome before I actually do something. I’ve been trying to but there are times you get so caught up in what you’re doing, you tend to forget. I don’t think I really do anything that hurts someone else. And if I do, its definitely unintentional. But that will be my goal for the next week. Think about everything I am doing and think about how it will affect me, the people around me, and the environment. Great post and life tip :)
