THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Posted in Religion, Thoughts tagged , , , , , , , at 4:29 am by randallbutisingh

This THOUGHT is from one of the Six Schools
of Hindu Philosophy
gleaned from my interest
in Comparative Religions.

The OCEAN is one
The WAVES in the OCEAN are many
The WAVES are the OCEAN
The MANY are ONE.

MANKIND is one
INDIVIDUALS that make up MANKIND are many
INDIVIDUALS are MANKIND
The MANY are ONE.

SUPERSOUL is one
INDIVIDUAL SOULS are SPARKS of the SUPERSOUL
INDIVIDUAL SOULS are identical with SUPERSOUL
The MANY ARE ONE.

The numerous islands of the sea, each with its own differences
seem separate bodies, but none really is.  Remove the water

which gives the illusion, and there remains only ONE land.
