still united in an apparently divided world

"Neighbor" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
“Neighbor” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

This is based on a cartoon of mine from 7 years ago!

In a world (sounds like the beginnings of a movie trailer)… where it seems division is on the increase, let’s not allow that to distract us from the deeper truth that at a fundamental and essential level we are all connected.

  1. I love how you have got an anarchist in there in the cartoon.

    Gosh this thee of connection keeps coming up in your postings David. What is it that is your passion here? I’m a little confused. Again it seems to me that we do experience connection and separation in various degrees thought like your cartoon with the iceberg, we experience the same things.

    I really do think you are touching on something with disconnection that I think many people if not experience, at least feel while us all being human. However what confuses me is how to marry what you say with connection to Sophia’s “Bridge”:

    “This was on of the most difficult thing I’d ever done

    Burning that bridge. Cutting it down. Separating myself as if Permanently.

    This didn’t necessarily mean forever. But I had to act as if it was. Like an axe!” pg 33 “The Liberation of Sophia”

    You have spoken of the need for Sophia’s separation but also that we are connected not separated in one of your recent posts. I don’t say this as a criticism but in order to seek understanding. Am I missing something?

  2. This cartoon’s imagery has a very different meaning for me. It, to me, implies that ‘WE’ are just paper dolls in someone else’s chain….for their pleasure?

  3. It is more the question of “who is my relative”? As per National Geographic’s Genographic project:

    ” DNA studies suggest that all humans today descend from a group of African ancestors who about 60,000 years ago began a remarkable journey. Follow the journey from them to you as written in your genes”.

    “Adam” is the common male ancestor of every living man. He lived in Africa some 60,000 years ago, which means that all humans lived in Africa at least at that time.

    Unlike his Biblical namesake, this Adam was not the only man alive in his era. Rather, he is unique because his descendents are the only ones to survive.

    Bottom line: We are all related to each other having one common father. Unfortunately, as witnessed by many dysfunctional families, this does not mean we will be a peaceful human race but at least we should remind each other of our common bond in an effort to see eye-to-eye.
