14th verse of The Tao Te Ching "Mystery"

Looked at but cannot be seen - it is beneath form;
Listened to but cannot be heard - it is beneath sound;
Held but cannot be touched - it is beneath feeling;
These depthless things evade definition,
And blend into a single mystery.

In its rising there is no light,
In its falling there is no darkness,
A continuous thread beyond description, Its form formless,
Its image nothing,
Its name silence;
Follow it, it has no back,
Meet it, it has no face.

Attend the present to deal with the past;
Thus you grasp the continuity of the Way,
Which is its essence.

There is a single, intelligent Consciousness that pervades the entire Universe - it is called the Universal Mind. The Universal Mind goes by many names. In the scientific world we know of the Unified Field, in spiritual philosophy we refer to The All or Universal Consciousness and in religion we call upon God who Himself goes by many names - Jehovah, Allah and Brahman to mention but a few. The name is relevant only in so far as it resonates with you.

What is perhaps more important than the name, is the nature of this One Universal Mind: Omniscience (all knowing), Omnipotence (all powerful), Omnificence (all creative) and Omnipresence (always present). As It is present everywhere at the same time, it follows that It must also be present in you. Your mind is part of the one Universal Mind and "a part", as Charles Haanel said, "must be the same in kind and quality as the whole, the only difference being one of degree".

For a more detailed discussion of the Universal Mind read this article:

You are One With the Universal Mind

You have an inner system of communication, then, in which the cells of all living things are connected. In those terms there is a continuum of CONSCIOUSNESS.

Yes, it's called love... and when we realize it fully, and can live from that perspective, we see the interconnectedness between everything and everyone :)
