Since forms are so diverse why do teachers say that “all is one?” Are we all the same?

The inner glow is the same regardless of the form covering it. That glow is the One Source in all and is constant.

Imagine a power strip with a TV, radio, microwave, refrigerator, and lap top plugged into it. These forms have very different functions and appear totally unrelated. What is the most vital and “one” common factor? The electricity. Without the power source each form is useless. Therefore, this Source is the only thing that is Real because the forms are dependent on it; yet the Source is not dependent on the forms-without the Source the forms are useless.

In stillness, you can experience this Source in yourself. Stillness does not mean no thought, just as the reality of electricity does not mean no object being powered.

It means that you remain as the Vital Witness, which incinerates any “thing” that tries to touch It. If you go far enough you will realize that you are The Source, and the ego and body are the non-vital forms.

Therefore, to see diversity is ignorance. To experience yourself in all things, times and places as the Source, is wisdom.
