The American novelist, farmer and environmental activist Wendell Berry wrote a beautiful poem about how all things on earth are connected. Wendell Berry“There is a single connected entity of earth that includes all its component members whether human or other than human,” he said.

His poem speaks of the voice each of us have, all of us, including the non-humans.

We also have unique qualities. Each of us and even with these differences are connected.

The poet does not offer the scientific evidence that this connection exists. How do we know it is true?

You can just check into your heart to know it is true.

Like much of our life, when we stay mindfully connected to ourselves we know what is true for us and what is not.

This is who you are.
