“We’re all just walking each other home.” – Ram Dass
What I like about this saying is how it suggests we’re on a journey together towards warmth and safety and that we have a mutual obligation to help each other get there.
Don’t get me wrong – I can admire rugged individualism and I think our individual efforts are very important but I also believe that “no man is an island, entire unto himself.”
We are social creatures and have a mutual responsibility to help one another along the way. It’s also, in general, much more fun to travel with others than to be alone on the road.
I take this opportunity to thank all those people who have helped to bring me safely to this place and time. I hope and pray that I will continue to have your assistance as I continue on the trail and I ask God to help me be generous in helping others get along.
I’ll see you at home.
