You are indeed totally united. Be willing to lose yourself by serving others. Lose yourself by diminishing your sense of self-importance, surrounding yourself by an elevated view of the importance of all that is to be seen and heard and felt. In God's creation there is no real hierarchy, no dominant group or country or race. There is no dominant religion. All are of equal importance.
Life is to be experienced through the recognition of equality. When you respond in love to another, you are affirming another's total equality. When you respond to another in a patronizing manner, you are assuming your own importance, and that is not a recognition of the godly qualities in another and an acceptance of another's total equality. Your relationship to others, therefore, must be surrounded by a sense of this equality, this acceptance of unity.
