Over the last few decades, the ability to get and stay connected to the rest of
the world has grown more and more accessible to all. Three years ago, who would
have imagined that we would be able to simply hold our cell phones next to each
other and transfer our contact information through the air? And could we have
even begun to guess, only ten years ago, how dramatically and thoroughly the Internet
would have shifted our world into being one of connection, communication and instant
We can all point to a myriad of applications and practical benefits from these technological advances, but the bottom line is this: interconnectedness is the key to every success and abundance we seek.
What were seeing happen around us and between us and among us is simply an external expression of our own intrinsic makeup. We are each made up bodily of a vast number of energetic molecules and particles. All these atoms buzzing around know inherently that they must work in concert with each other in order to feed the system, from swallowing to digestion; maintain the system, by knowing how to pump blood to the bodys farthest reaches, from toe to earlobe; and knit the system back together again when something within the body seeks energetic recharge or realignment with the whole system. Each of us is a self-contained Internet!
And heres what I find especially fascinating: while the body keeps all these atoms moving in military precision, our mind creates actual physical leaps of electrical energy across gaps in the brain. Its said that when a person is concentrating and creating diligently, the electrical impulses are so fast and frequent that they make one of natures electrical storms look like the meager sparks of a thirty-watt light bulb.
With the human body and its thinking mind as an example, we can build the kind of networking relationships among ourselves that will take us to much higher levels in our lives. By understanding the magic and miracle of every other person around us, we can begin to see that our support of each otherthe feeding, maintaining and knitting back togetheris absolutely essential to creating an optimal body of like-minded people with similar goals.
And, once the body is in alignment, the thinking element of that bodythe creating, humming, magnificent developer of concerted leaps in activitystays absolutely focused and on track toward the goal at hand!
Think of the astonishingly vast creative power we possess, and the far-reaching changes we can bring into being, by networking ourselves together as one body!
