We Must All Live as One
When the leaders of the world, political and religious, can naturally express their love, we will be able to solve all the problems we have on the Earth. However we are afraid of love because we have forgotten the truths and have come to believe in myths. The first truth we have forgotten is that we are all one. We are all one, indivisible, in spite of differences of religion, nationality, ideology, and so forth. We think we each need our own separate identity, and we participate in mad competition with each other, even with the Earth itself.
The second truth we need to remember is that there is Enough. As long as we think we need More and as long as we are unable to share, we cannot awaken from the illusion that there is not Enough. Another truth is that there is no such thing as ‘better’.
But it is not easy to resist such an attractive illusion. From my childhood, I thought that I was born a winner because I was an American, Catholic, and a Man. No matter how silly it may sound, there are still wars and massacres because of a sense of superiority like this. Yet what we must do now is to live the message that we are all one.
