There is no differentiation in the Source from which all things spring. Human consciousness is like a vast garden containing what appears to be an infinite number of unrelated forms. Many spiritual seekers spend their whole life wandering in this place looking for that exclusive “It,” or worse protecting that exclusive “It.” If one wanted to find what was common to all these forms, they would need only refer to the soil from which all these forms spring and return. But, if the seeker was convinced that there must be some individual form, experience, and teaching within the garden that would unite all forms; surely they would spend eternity hopelessly searching, dividing, and struggling to protect a single fruit from decaying.
As you wander, you’ll see people have divided off into groups and claim a small corner of the garden as their exclusive own and are ready to protect it from “them” who are not “like us.” This exclusiveness is what forms the basis of the illusory “me.” My religion, my demands, my likes and dislikes, my family, my group, my search-my life.
The best fruits grow down and point to the One Eternal Common Soil from which all these things are born and return to. This ground as well as the sum of the fruit can be called God, as it is present at all times, things and places no matter where you wander; and resides as the Eternal Final Cause of all forms.
