There is no such thing as independence. Independence is a myth. It doesn’t exist, it’s a trauma response. Because we all breathe the same air, walk on the same earth, drink from the same waters, we are all always dependent. Being human means that we need each other. We come into this world belonging. We are even born attached to another human.
When we are standing in fear and scarcity we are codependent. When we are standing in love and abundance we are interdependence. Either way we are always dependent.
So many of us have built our lives on this myth. We have planted our flags on hollowed ground that at some point will start to crumble beneath our feet. My prayer for each of us when this happens is that we surrender into the love and abundance around us and let ourselves be held.
