During an airline flight in November 2002, The Grasshopper whispered this to me:

“Border lines are invisible from the sky.”

The meaning seems obvious at first but it became a deeper discovery once I sat in quiet contemplation with the quote.

When do border lines disappear between you and me? How do we make that happen?

The starting point seems to be that I have to see the me in you and the you in me.

“Namaste” is a greeting used in India, Nepal and other areas in that region. It’s more than “hello” to many. Namaste is many times accompanied by a hands folded gesture and it signifies the recognition of a common divinity within the other person.

To our intellect the border line seems to be the exterior of the other person. Our limited sense perception makes them seem separate and apart from our exterior. The border disappears when we gain a higher perspective and begin to sense that the same life force that imbues them also animates us. This gives us a deeper sense of the essence of another and the invisible connection we have with all.

Connectivity to all is a powerful meditation that delivers peace. It brings that peace into the interactions you have with others. You begin to treat others the way you want to be treated because you recognize that you are really treating yourself in any interaction. The bible verse “Love thy neighbor as thyself” is a powerful teaching. It goes beyond doing good works. That’s not enough. It’s giving yourself and another the respect and dignity that you would bestow on the giver of life itself.

We all forget from time to time. So, if you’ve just treated someone poorly, rather than beat yourself up for your shortcoming, go to work on the meditation of connectivity. This will fill you with peace and your overflow will funnel into your communications with all.

“My peace I give to you.” John 14:27

All the best,
