Not a single thing in our existence…. exists alone. As Einstein so aptly noted, “Everything is relative.” And it is true. Everything exists in relation to everything else.
Where ever there is light, there will be a shadow. Where there is open, there is also closed.
For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. This is a Universal Law. Newton’s Third Law, to be exact.
It goes on and on through all facets of life and existence. Despair, hope. Sadness, joy. Peanut Butter, Jelly. Or something like that. We’ve seen it with our own eyes.
I truly believe this. Whatever our experience might be, there was value and NEED in that part of our journey. (Sidebar: I think we are all on a journey.) And as a part of that path, we will have highs, lows, and in-betweens. But each part is necessary. We need each experience to help us along…. propel us in the right direction. Lead us to the place of higher awareness.
We are all learners, and creators, if we choose to be. And each day can be our greatest experiment. It is my thought that we are meant to create and share value. Value in life.
Some people do this on a grand scale, but I think for most humans, this can be a constant way of being. A smile. A helping hand. A word of encouragement. A show of support. Exuberance for someone’s good fortune. Empathy for their adversity. All of us… existing in relation to the rest of all of us….
We journey through. And if we are lucky enough…. we find parts of the life travel which are joyous. A Christmas Concert at the local High School. A good pet chicken. A bunch of happy moments. Somebody to share a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with.
Believe it or not, it is all part of the Universal Law, which has a tremendous underlying harmony. Just look up at the stars at night, and see how they all fit perfectly in place. Infinitely. You can see it with your own eyes.
And there you have it.
“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”
― William Shakespeare,
“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
