We are connected by a bond of sympathy

“From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: that we are here for the sake of each other – above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, and also for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.”
~ Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein’s quote resonates with me about the interconnectedness of life – who I am today is shaped by the lives of countless souls. Yes we all share a common bond of sympathy as we are expressions of the energy of love and compassion. My own happiness indeed depends on the smile and well being of others, so I am always indebted to them.

I think society often tends to focus on individuals’ accomplishments in history books and records, yet in actuality credit also goes to the many people behind the scenes who supported and helped them in one way or other. No one is insignificant or unimportant in the grand tapestry of life. We all have the power to make a contribution to humanity and the environment – we are the ocean in a drop of water.
