Book Report

Thoughts on “Oneness” from Everyday Suchness by Gyomay M. Kubose

“Oneness does not mean that all become one and the same. The recognition of difference is oneness. One is many and many is one. Equality means difference and difference is equality. Everyone is unique in himself, and this uniqueness makes the world interesting. In being unique, there is untold respect for others’ uniqueness. Only when one really respects and honors himself, can he respect others. Each one should be as perfect as he himself can be. Each person should be the finest that he himself is- without comparison with others.
A beautiful symphony is possible because of the different instruments. A garden is beautiful because of the different flowers, shrubs, trees, and rocks. Man and woman harmonize because they are different. Assimilation is not forgetting or losing the uniqueness of individuals, but it is a recognition and understanding of others, harmonizing with them. Democracy is lived well when each person understands and recognizes the rights of others and respects others.
Willows are green and flowers are red. Willows are beautiful in their greenness and red flowers are beautiful as red flowers.”

Wishing you all “Oneness” in this crazy, mixed up, beautiful world.

    excellent, Jade, excellent. Reminded me of:

    "Now the body is not made up on one part but of many...If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be?"

    not a big "Paul" fan...but I've always liked this passage.
