Life is a trip, metaphorically and literally. We are all taking a trip through the universe on a spaceship called Earth. We dropped onto this planet’s fertile plains, and we became passengers, not knowing our point of origin or our destination — almost as if we were unwilling and unaware participants in a cosmic bungee jump. But what we do know is that this trip is a journey of growth, both for our individual selves and for the collective of humanity. These are not separate.
