“Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency.” – Mahatma Gandhi
This Sunday, our show focuses on the concept of “Interdependence.” In Buddhism, there is another word for this idea: “interbeing.” Interbeing refers the relationship of individuals with one another, which is necessary for mutual coexistence. Whether we realize it or not, we are all “interbeing” with those around us. Our actions have a great effect on others; unkind words can hurt, a helping hand can change a life.
We are all interdependent, and interbeing. Always. The more independent we believes ourselves to be, the less likely this is the case. Happy Independence Day weekend to my fellow interdependent American beings. Thank you for reading.
