At least for some of our time here on earth we live our lives under a great delusion. Believing the myth of separation, we go about searching for God, acting as though the earth is ours to do with as we wish and hating our neighbor while the truth waits to be “discovered.” Actually the truth waits to be remembered. We are all one. We are all created with a sense of “oneness” with the Creator and all of creation — but during our time in this life we forget.
We start playing the “my God is greater than your God” game and we believe that others are actually “less than” we are and deserving of our contempt.
All the while God is not only as close as the air we breathe, God is the air we breathe. The earth is our mother, supporting and sustaining us. When we look in the face of our neighbor or our enemy we see the image of God in whose likeness we are all created. You see, there is no separation. We are all one.
