This greater Self is not only connected with higher realms of spiritual truth and light. It is also connected to the composite Self which contains all of humanity within it, and to an even greater Self that contains the souls of all that lives, including non- human creatures. The collective Self that is humanity which lives within each individual self, holds a consciousness of being One and an awareness of belonging and of being part of all. It cannot separate itself from any other any more than a blade of grass can claim to be separate from the rest of the grass in a meadow or field. The single element is no different than the whole; what distinguishes it is that it is a point of consciousness within an individual form.

May this love come soon to wipe away all traces of hatred and rancor, and may it infuse the hearts of all so that one in purpose, and one in effort, a new and sacred world can be created.
