Isn’t the arm entirely part of the body ?
What about the hairs on that same arm ?
Isn’t the wave part of the ocean ? Isn’t it the same moon reflecting in each and every puddle after the rain ?
Nothing separates us from the Divine but our own mental formations. When the wave reaches the seashore… does it die ? Of course not, it simply returns to its source, the sea, the ocean. In fact they were never two different entities. That wave would never have been without the constant presence of the ocean. The wave was never born and will never die. All along, the wave was nothing but the ocean.You’re all familiar with this idea. Only the appearance was different – a trick from our sense perceptions.
It is the same for the gold bracelet, the gold earrings, or the gold ring. Only the appearance changes but in the end, it’s all gold.
Man is Divine
Stone is Divine
Air is Divine
Water is Divine…
NOT ONCE could you be separated from the Divine ! Like the wave, we simply could not be without the constant presence of the Divine.
