Happy Interdependence Day!

This is Interdependence Day weekend, and I am enjoying my stay in Vermont where I have a garden that I planted on Memorial Day.

I like to call this Interdependence Day – last year at this time I was attending a class called “Grow Food Everywhere” and one of the instructors, Deb Habib, coined the phrase. It feels so much better to me than Independence Day.

Having just read “The Wholarian Vision,” by Katrina Meyer, PhD, I am very aware of the interconnectedness of everything on this planet. Recognizing that we are all part of the whole provides a new awareness of how our actions, our energy, our essence affects everything around us, and that has a ripple effect that is very far reaching.

So rather than celebrate independence, let’s celebrate our interdependence and envision a world where collaboration and cooperation replace competition and greed, a world where peace, love and compassion prevail.
