We Are One
2. We are all interconnected. We are One. We’ve heard of the butterfly effect, which essentially claims that when a butterfly flaps its wings in Africa, it can cause a hurricane in America. COVID has shown us with devastating clarity that what happens in a country half way around the globe can quickly impact all of us across the world. The lesson is that we are all inter-connected; we are all reliant upon one another; we are all part of one, enormous living organism. Jewish mystics believe that God is in everything and we are all part of that same whole. In the Shema, we say, “God is One,” which could not only be interpreted as there is only one God and not many gods, but also that God is everything. God is One. And we are all part of that same Oneness. COVID has shown us the truth in that belief.
