HUMANS may be beginning to accept the idea of the interconnect of all life as being the keynote to saving themselves and the planet.
Climate change is only one of numerous examples of views heralding a new global awareness.
Setting the stage for such a worldview revolution, in his own time, was the theosophical pioneer William Q. Judge. In a public address given at given Mr. Judge at the Parliament of Religions, Chicago, 1893 Universal Brotherhood a Fact in Nature he declared:
“We insist that universal brotherhood is a fact in nature. It is a fact for the lowest part of nature; for the animal kingdom, for the vegetable kingdom, and the mineral kingdom.
“We are all atoms, obeying the law together. Our denying it does not disprove it. It simply puts off the day of reward and keeps us miserable, poor, and selfish.”
It is known that even giant galaxies form groups, from a few to dozen up to large clusters composed of several thousand spiraled denizens in deep space. These vast star systems are called “Local Groups,” and all the galaxies they hold, like cells, are in mutual attraction and interaction with each other. All life, great and small, is interconnected with a common mission in the vastness of outer and inner space.
On a more modest scale our solar system, the home of our Earth the other planets, calls the Milky Way Galaxy its home. Correspondingly, just as the Earth is home to us humans, so our human bodies are habitats and landscapes to trillions of living cells and microbes.
H. P. Blavatsky affirms (Kosmic Mind): “the whole body of man [is] composed of cells, and these cells are now being recognised as individual organisms and – quien sabe – will come perhaps to be recognized some day as an independent race of thinkers inhabiting the globe, called man! It really looks like it.”
The Human Microbiome
“[This is what] the ancient Hindus meant by endowing with mind and consciousness every atom, and giving it a distinct name of a God or a Goddess. Place their Pantheon, composed of 30 crores (or 300 millions) of deities within the macrocosm (the Universe), or inside the microcosm (man), and the number will not be found overrated, since they relate to the atoms, cells, and molecules of everything that is.”
How Bacteria Talk
From the documentary film
“Microorganisms in your gastrointestinal tract form a highly intricate, living ‘fabric’ that plays an integral part in your health,” natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola writes, “affecting everything from body weight and nutrition, to chronic diseases of all kinds. It is very susceptible to toxins, and one in particular can wreak havoc on your microbiome.
“This is the topic of the featured documentary film, Microbirth, directed by Alex Wakeford and Toni Harman. It reveals a fascinating new view of birth, and how microscopic happenings can have lifelong consequences.
“The microbiome may even have a generational impact, affecting DNA that is then passed on to future generations. Emerging research shows that bacteria are absolutely vital for human health, and imbalances in the human microbiome significantly contribute to chronic non-transmissible diseases.”

Man and Planet
“How could man epitomize Cosmos if he did not touch it at every point and involve it in every principle?”
“If man’s being is woven in the web of destiny, his potencies and possibilities take hold of divinity as the woof and pattern of his boundless life. Why, then, should he grow weary or disheartened?”
“The Greatest Problem
The greatest problem of philosophy is the physical and substantial nature of life, the independent nature of which is denied by modern science because that science is unable to comprehend it.
“The reincarnationists and believers in Karma alone dimly perceive that the whole secret of Life is in the unbroken series of its manifestations: whether in, or apart from, the physical body,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote.
“Because if ‘Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass, stains the white radiance of Eternity’ – yet it is, itself, part and parcel of that Eternity — for life alone can understand life.”
On the New Year
“Instead of wishing our readers a happy or prosperous New Year, we feel more in the vein to pray them to make it a worthy one. This can be effected by those who are courageous and resolute. Thoreau pointed out that there are artists in life, persons who can change the colour of a day and make it beautiful to those with whom they come in contact.
“We claim that there are adepts, masters in life who make it divine, as in all other arts. Is it not the greatest art of all, this which affects the very atmosphere in which we live? That it is the most important is seen at once, when we remember that every person who draws the breath of life affects the mental and moral atmosphere of the world, and helps to colour the day for those about him.”
“Never will I seek nor receive private, individual salvation; never will I enter into final peace alone; but forever and everywhere will I live and strive for the redemption of every creature throughout the world.”
