The smaller spokes and wheels in this case drive the larger ones. They are interconnected. In our life, we are not islands or single wheels unto ourselves. We are a series of interconnected wheels that drive a machine larger than ourselves. Our actions have an effect on the whole of humanity and even the planet. Every lie we tell breaks a tooth on the machine. Every loving act we do keeps the machine going.
Machines can be fixed when they break and a little care and maintenance will keep it going.
Here is the point. Not only are we all connected in ways we do not see or understand, we all matter and are essential to the machine of interconnected human wheels.
Even if we feel that we are a small spoke on the wheel, we are a part. Keep turning.
