“I am one Self, united with my Creator.“
The analogy with a fruit tree might help here. Even though you may appear as a single floret on a seemingly insignificant little twig, you are the blossoming of the entire tree as it bursts forth in color in the spring. Even though you may appear as a single green leaf on a remote branch, you are the foliage as a whole. You are the new season’s wave of new buds, blossom and fruit, bursting forth into beauty and perfection. The true nature of blossom, foliage and fruit is the true nature of each floret, leaf and fruit. And it is in their true nature that they are united with the tree.
A healthy fruit tree is inconceivable without blossoms foliage and fruit – even more are the blossoms, foliage and fruit inconceivable without the tree.
