The notion that we are all connected has been a topic of laughter for many. For many, the topic is directly associated with the notions of new age philosophy or even a simple religious belief. In the major religions like in Christianity, the doctrine of respecting and honouring your fellow neighbour does exist. However, the notion that we are actually all connected, as in, we are all part of a larger whole, a larger organism is a notion that is not promoted and often subjected to ridicule. New notions in environmental activism relies on the idea that we live in Gaia or mother earth. The notion is simple, Gaia is a living organism, our Earth has a body, a soul and therefore a consciousness and therefore, we the living organisms in this Earth are simply a part of a whole, together with animals, insects, vegetables, minerals other bacteria and microorganisms. Forever and ever, we are told we are at the top of the food chain, we are the ultimate manifestation of species, the dominant species who deserve to be in control of this planet, like pilots manoeuvring a giant mothership. This however, proves to be a false belief, like many other beliefs we are taught to obey from childhood on. The Genome Project, brought up the concept that there a great number of genes that make up our bodies, many of which are exactly the same as in other species. We often hear on the news hype about the discovery of genes that control temper, addiction, sexuality and our weight controls. We hear of the “fat” gene, the “evil” gene, the “weak” genes and etcetera and etcetera. What is not so widely promoted is that our genes are not so much distance from that of other organisms. In fact for years, it was also science that discover the make up of our DNA and the make up of the very own material bodies consist of. We now know our bodies are made of cosmic dust, or dust that gets mixed up with that of our Earth. News about the Genome Project did not effectively announced that the significance of knowing that our genes are shared among other living forms is so consequential, because it invalids the backward belief that we are higher beings, god-like whom are justified to do just about whatever we want with this Earth and all the “inferior” life forms in it. In fact, other humans have taken this idea even further and turned it into the belief that men are better than women, that Caucasians are more capable than other “races” such as the Blacks and so and so on. New scientific discoveries, such as the research that the Institute of HeartMath are doing tell us that we are far more connected than we ever perhaps even noticed. The research shows that our hearts emit a frequency that expels out our bodies and goes out to join all other frequencies around the globe. We are, according to the research, walking radios influencing our world around us. In fact, all of our thoughts, actions and words make a difference in this world. We are constantly affecting our surrounding, our immediate close ones and even people we have never met. We are also being affected by people miles and miles away, in other continents. This notion is called Quantum Entanglement and it explains that two minuscule particles once having been together, when put in different places, they continue to have an effect on each other. Watch the video below for a more detailed explanation on the concept. For instance, all of the conflict in the Middle East is very much playing a role in your every day life. Don’t think for a second that the only consequence is reflected in the price of gas or in the shed of sympathy you can for sure feel when you watch or read the news. These effects have lasting effects upon our psyches. For me, this rings truth and forces us to rethink the we way we think about ourselves and the world. These concepts, of course, resonate with spiritual traditions of East and West, who taught us that we are a part of a whole, that we are not separate, that we should take what we need and not consume and deplete everything like a virus. It also confirms notions such as Karma concepts of cause and effect. If this is truth, we got a lot of waking up and work to do, because this is our home and it has not boundaries, frontiers and nationalities.
