Dr. King expresses the transcendent and the relational eloquently:
â€œIt really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied together into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.Â We are made to live together because of the interrelated structure of reality . . . Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, youâ€™ve depended on more than half the world. This is the way our universe is structured, this is its interrelated quality. We arenâ€™t going to have peace on Earth until we recognize the basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality. â€œ
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We lose track of this interconnectedness at our peril.
