WE ARE ALL ONE

Thought for Today:

WE ARE ALL ONE

O Mankind, know that we are all One.  Your neighbour is you; that is why you must love him as yourself.  Like the waves in the Ocean, each with its own individuality and seemingly separate, doing their own thing…some as gentle ripples, hardly rocking the boat, others larger inviting the surfer, some so powerful that they can  toss the largest steamer so badly as to cause a disaster;  but below the Ocean from which they sprang, and which they truly are,  lies peaceful and  calm.  Like the waves, we mankind, each individual soul, with its  own individuality is deluded by  its seeming separateness from the eternal Supersoul from which it took birth.  When enlightenment comes, then it wll see not multiplicity but Unify.

Another analogy; like the islands of  an archipelago, each with its own individuality and its own characteristics, some barren, some productive mostly of weeds others beautiful with flowering plants and luscious fruits,  but remove the water which gives the illusion of separateness and what do you see:  one land with humps that were called islands.

“No man is an island entire of itself”  says the poet John Donne, “every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main……………..any man”s death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee”.
