THE SAME SUBSTANCE

How can we be separate

when we’re the same substance, body and soul,

collections of the same atoms

and channels of the same soul-force?

 

Let’s be like children

whose beings are too empty

to be filled with distinctions

too open to be closed off by prejudice

too fluid to be clogged up with concepts –

so whole and so connected that they don’t need

to build

a fortress of identity.

 

What is it that separates us?

Only the illusion of identity –

only the illusion of separateness.
