We can’t help it; it’s in our nature. We all need to be “connected”.
Whether we realize it or not, we’re always looking for ways to be a part of, and important to, someone else, some group, some venture, some cause, some future. And so we make connections, either constructive or destructive, for better or worse.
But every connection is a potential re-birth opportunity – both for us and for whom or what we connect with. No matter what form it comes in, every re-birth is an opportunity for learning about ourselves and the world, for understanding, and for growth.
Every person who crosses our path is then, a potential “teacher” for us, and we for them – most especially those who are most unlike us. Every ailment or other trying situation that comes our way offers the potential for us to connect with and grow from the experience. Being “in cahoots” isn’t for sissies.
