The whole picture

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” – John Muir

Science has done wonders for us, but it’s one side of the spectrum. Science dissects. The intellect pulls things apart. The heart brings things together. There are questions to which information and intelligence have no answers. When you analyse your friends, you lose sight of their beauty. When you analyse and dissect the universe, you separate yourself. When you empathise, you see the larger picture, and you feel closer. Care and you are instantly connected. Everything in the cosmos is connected. The more we break things down, the more we lose the essentials.

NUTSHELL: The opposite of analysis is synthesis. Health comes from looking at things as a whole looking at your body as a whole, looking at humanity as a whole.
