There is an endless net of threads 
throughout the universe…
At every crossing of the threads there 

is an individual.
And every individual is a crystal bead.
And every crystal bead reflects
not only the light from every
other crystal in the net
but also every other reflection
throughout the entire universe.

~From the Rig Veda as described by Anne Adams

We are all connected to everyone and 
everything in the universe. 
Therefore, everything one does as an 
individual affects the whole. 
All thoughts, words, images, prayers, blessings, and deeds are listened to by all that is. 
~ Serge Kahili King
 We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results. 
~Herman Melville
