I'm reading about interconnectedness.
Interconnectedness means that what we do to one person, we do to all. The corollary to this might be that anytime we attack another person, through words or deeds, we hurt ourselves also.
It's called the "butterfly effect" in physics. Simply put, our lives in every aspect--all that we think, all the words we say, the actions we take, even the unspoken images that clutter our minds--eventually affect our children. And, not just our children. How we live also affects our friends, co-workers, and everyone affected by these people impacting people we never meet.
All are touched by what we do, say, think. This day. Now.
Adding goodness to the world through my words, thoughts, and actions is a gift I give to myself and others.
