“I’m trying to understand this deep connection the people have to their forest,
she talks about a network of energy that flows through all living things.”
From the Movie Avatar
There is something within us, deeply embedded, that makes us want to be connected. Why else would a sunset be beautiful, or mountain air seem so refreshing? Even in our popular culture, like the movie Avatar, we love that connection, or at least seeing it in others.
And we also long to be connected to people, especially our families. It’s good and natural. But many of us also love our communities, and our people.
With nature, we may not be as connected as we used to be, but we can be connected to the creation, and to each other, as long as we respect the earth, and the value of each human being.
There is always hope.
