When I am healed I am not healed alone.
We are all in this thing called “life” together. “No person is an island,” writes the poet. The expression, “One for all, and all for one,” says it all.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, it is suggested in the twelfth step, that whatever we have gotten out of the program we share with others. We intuitively understand the paradoxical observation that we learn what we teach, we get what we give, and we are as we would see others to be.
In Unitarian Universalism, we covenant together to affirm and promote the love for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. We come to recognize and acknowledge that it isn’t every person for themself but we all live downstream from one another.
Today, it is recommended that we take ten minutes at the beginning and end of the day, and remember at the beginning of the hour, and that we are all in this together, and that when I am healed from my sense of separation, I am not healed alone.
