I dicsovered at some point in my late adolescence that we are not alone as physical beings. No discovery in my life has brought me such comfort. Religion is not what I speak of but a spirituality of feeling and heightening one’s awareness of the world around them to such a degree that it is difficult to accept the notion that Earth is random and chaotic. It’s a view of a higher power that is inclusive of all religions. Like “Siddartha” in his culminating moments by the river, we must understand someday that we are all one, forever connected, a piece of an eternal web of unconditional love and unity.
