“We should learn how to look at life as streams of being, and not as separate entities.
For instance, looking into a flower, you can see that the flower is made of many elements that we can call non-flower elements. When you touch the flower, you touch the cloud. You cannot remove the cloud from the flower, because if you could remove the cloud from the flower, the flower would collapse right away.
You don’t have to be a poet in order to see a cloud floating in the flower, but you know very well that without the clouds there would be no rain and no water for the flower to grow.
The whole cosmos can be seen, can be identified, can be touched, in one flower. So to say that the flower is empty of a separate self also means that the flower is full of the cosmos. So you are of the same nature as a flower: you are empty of a separate self, but you are full of the cosmos, you are a manifestation of the cosmos.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh
The ignorance of mankind to the power of unity and unity in diversity is the real cause for all the maladies in the world at the present time. Children from kindergarten level must be taught the power generated and radiated in unity in diversity. The lack of political will, by the government, to introduce curriculum on unity is the main reason. It has been said that “so powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth”. https://www.malaysiakini.com/letters/332666
