Thomas Berry says “Nothing is itself without everything else”

Every living creature, every particle all tied up with every other living creature. Everyone and every thing you and I come into contact, we are part of each other. What I do to you, I do to myself. 

The daily ‘awareness eraser’ called modern life does its best for us all to forget that.

Yet we’re at our best when we remember what Mary Oliver wrote, “our place in the family of things.”

“Everything is integral and interacts with everything else. This means that nothing is itself without everything else. There is a commonality, an integrity, an intimacy of the universe with itself.”

— Thomas Berry
