Unity (Kesatuan)

“Unity isn’t fought for and won. It is realized one person at a time.” ~ Alliance for a New Humanity website

“The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.” ~ Baha’ullah

“People are not separated. They are individuated.” ~ Barbara Ann Brennan

“A mystic sees beyond the illusion of separateness into the intricate web of life in which all things are expressions of a single Whole. You can call this web God, the Tao, the Great Spirit, the Infinite Mystery, Mother or Father, but it can be known only as love.” ~ Joan Borysenko

“Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself. Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things.” ~ Zen Master Dogen

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.” ~ John Donne

“We are part of the whole which we call the universe, but it is an optical delusion of our mind that we think we are separate. This separateness is like a prison for us. Our job is to widen the circle of compassion so we feel connected to all people and all situations.” ~ Albert Einstein

“The only real hope of people today… is a renewal of our certainty that we are rooted in Earth and, at the same time, in the cosmos. This awareness endows us with the capacity for self- trans-cendence. Transcendence as a hand reached out close to us, to foreigners, to the human community, to all living creatures, to nature, to the universe; transcendence as a deeply and joyously experienced need to be in harmony even with what we ourselves are not, what we do not understand, what seems distant from us in time and space, but with which we are nevertheless mysteriously linked because, together with us, all this constitutes a single world.”
~ Vaclav Havel

“Suppose you stand on a high place to enjoy the beauty of the sparkling sea below. You need do nothing to create that beauty; you need only BE IN THE SAME PLACE WHERE IT IS, and let nature do the rest. So it is with the inner life. There is nothing we can DO to gain psychic beauty. It already exists without our effort. We need only be where we belong, that is, in self-union. Then, beauty IS.”
~ Vernon Howard

“To love is to know that you live in union with all other creatures in a world that is itself alive and constantly becoming; in short, to live is to know that you exist in a world whose highest harmony is love.” ~ Daphne Rose Kingma

“At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, a complex of wave forms and resonances which is absolutely individual and unique, and yet which connects us to everyrthing in the universe.”
~ George Leonard

“You can’t tell when this will happen. Usually we act as if we are autonomous, independent beings. But occasionally – at a waterfall, on a walk, hugging someone we love – we glimpse a trace of infinity. Something inside us remembers the oneness. ~ Daniel C. Matt

“The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are there. ~ Yasutani Roshi

“The clear bead at the centre changes everything
There are no edges to my loving now
I’ve heard it said there’s a window that opens from one mind to another
But if there’s no wall, there’s no need for fitting the window, or the latch. ~ Rumi

“Each small task of everyday is part of the total harmony of the universe.”
~ St. Theresa of Lisieux

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” ~ Chief Seattle

“If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
~ Mother Teresa
