I am part of the universe

I saw this over at Secular Dentist and it made me think of a quote by D.H. Lawrence that my lovely partner sent me yesterday.
First, the video.
Next, the quote.
I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. There is not any part of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surfaces of the water. – D. H. Lawrence
This all sits very closely with how I feel about my existence in this universe, and all this is about as close to a universal truth as I think I’ve ever seen. The only thing is I don’t define this as spirituality as such, just a feeling of connectedness with the universe and a knowledge that we are all part of the same gigantic system.
