Everything Is Connected

Everything Is Connected

Rob Bell, the New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins, has a new audiobook that is an invitation to see your life in a new way.

I was raised in a modern world that taught me a particular view of things based on subjects and objects: There’s a fixed
set world,
out there,
doing what it does,
and then there are our thoughts and observations and
insights that exist independent of all that.

You observe it.
You measure it. You take notes.
You notice.
You view.
It’s going to do what it’s going to do,
and you can be here or not,
witness it or not,
study or note or learn or observe—
or not.

There’s the subject,
and the object,
and a clear difference between the two.
There’s a line,
and you’re over here watching,
and the thing you’re watching is over there doing whatever it’s going to do,
on the other side of the line.

But we now know that there is no line.
There is no out there
out there.
To witness it is to affect it.
There’s only this one reality, and in it everything is
connected to everything else.”
