Living Compassion Tip — Week 29

The Web of Life

“We did not weave the web of life; we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.”
– Chief Seattle

Interdependence is a basic human needs. Our web of life is woven with acceptance, closeness, community, contribution, empathy, love, respect, support and trust.

We all know how crucial these various aspects of interdependence are. To understand ourselves, we must first ask:

How important to me is:

acceptance?
community?
contribution?
respect?
support?
trust?

Once we have an idea of our own level of need in the area of interdependence we can understand our part as a “strand” in the web of life.
