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
a fortress of identity.
What is it that separates us?
Only the illusion of identity –
only the illusion of separateness.
