Relations

Hubble_ultra_deep_field_high_rez_edit1

You and I are in relationship. There is neither void nor things between you and me, only relations.

All persons are in relationship. There is neither void nor things between us, only relations.

Those who have passed are in relationship with us. There is neither void nor things between us and them, only relations.

Those who are to come are in relationship with us. There is neither void nor things between us and them, only relations.

We are in relationship with the earth and all living things.  There is neither void nor things between us and the world, only relations.

We are in relationship with All there is. There is neither void nor things between us and the Mystery, only relations.
