There are so many energies that connect us, flow through us. The metaphor for what the universe is, is rampant in every aspect of the universe... and
that metaphor is how everything is a part of something else, and from that makes a whole.
Life is the energy of the sun, passed down to plants which take this energy on via chlorophyll, turning it into storable energy in the form of sugars.
We come along, eat the plants, or other animals who have eaten plants, and suddenly we have stored sun energy in the form of sugar which makes up
part of the life energy we experience.
Water, oxygen, minerals and all sorts of organic and non-organic matter helps to make up the cells in our bodies, the parts which make the whole.
If we go further into cellular anatomy, into molecular and atomic physics, we further our understanding that even the basic building block of our
body, the cell, is also composed of parts, and the molecules are composed of atoms, the atoms composed of ions, nucleus etc.
We move away from the Sun, we see planets and moons in orbit, and the model of the solar system reflects the atom, it is all real life metaphors for
who we are, as beings of life.
Everything is a part of everything else and we are all connected by the very fabric of the universe we reside.
Just parts of a greater whole.
