“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
The more we work with the universal – the concept of unity and wholeness – the more everything makes sense. Parts have meaning when they are understood to be parts of a bigger picture. Let opposites coexist in you – like fear with love – without choosing one over the other.
We all should try to understand this particular aspect of life. When you think only about yourself; you’re limiting yourself from the thoughts of others because I believe with unionism we can achieve greater things.
When John brings his idea, Peter brings his idea and Esther brings her own idea; you will see how the whole contributed ideas will be strong which will make three of them to choose the most effective one and then join hands together and make it a job accomplished. There’s one local proverb we do make use of in my tribe which is ” when group of people urinated together it will foam” and it means: ” when group of people join together to execute one particular obligation; they will finish it solidly and also on time compare to when it was done by one or two persons.
It also calls for us to be compassionate to one another. Some people do focus on themselves, which is called: “self-centeredness” they never feel compassion for their fellow humans, selfishness has taken over everything about them. Let me tell you this; when you only think about yourself, you will be limited to others ideas and opinions which will always push you to making lots of mistakes. We do refer such people as: ” Eat alone and die alone” because such persons will only end up alone since they can’t put up with community.
Let us all bear it in mind that what we achieve as a person can’t be compared with what we achieve as group or community. Work together and achieve great and also be compassionate to one another and with that; we will make the world a better place.
