   Oneness of Being

   Oneness of Being.

The article linked contains a quote from Khalil Gibran about the importance of other people in our lives. Emmanuel Levinas capitalized Other in his writing emphasizing the point.

We are incomplete without others in our lives. However, we do not always see their importance until they are out of our lives. The world and others complete who we are. We are always in relationship with someone and something.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
