parts of a whole: Japan 2008
Muff told me this great metaphor:
We all accept our bodies are connected. Begin to accept the oneness of our world as though it were our body. It is, after all, our world. So, when we think about other people, think about them like you do your feet. Your brain might be far from your feet, but if you see them on the road about to be run over, you don't laugh. Those are part of you! You send he signal for them to move!
With the people we encounter (or people we don't encounter) we should try our best to love them as we would our appendages. Healthy feet are part of a healthy whole. Healthy humans--even eccentric or different from us--are part of our healthy whole.
