World is the pattern of meaningful relations in which a person exists and in the design of which he or she participates. World is interrelated with the person at every moment. A continual dialectical process goes on between world and self and world; one implies the other and neither can be understood if we omit the other.
Whenever I walk, my body is interrelated with the world in which and on which I take my steps. The earth rises infinitesimally to meet my step as I walk. The balance essential in walking is one that is not solely in our body; it can be understood only in relation to the ground on which it stands and walks. The rhythm of my walking depends on my faith that’s the earth will be there.
As our numbers swell you’d think we we’d feel a greater sense of belonging, everywhere, to everyone. But there are so many of us, more than we can ever know in a life time, we end up feeling like we belong no where, to no one. We can move among multitudes, and feel isolated and alone. We live unique, private lives of hope and self interest.
“The greater the loyalty of a group toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals.”
