When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a
Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because
you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by
tradition, it breeds violence.
- J. Krishnamurti
We all flow out of the
same Supreme Creative Consciousness: God.
The illusion of separation from our Source gives way to yet another
great illusion or myth: separation from one another. We all have a different culture, language and even skin

Professing separation is a protest of our origin. Accepting the illusion of separation is
a refusal of knowledge.
If separation is
established, inequality can be ignored and then rationalized . . . a separate
but equal mentality. Once humanity accepts separation, there is a great tendency
and temptation to become inhumane.
At some point, separation seeks justification by begging the question Who
is RIGHT? Once this question arises, war and man's inhumanity towards humanity
awaits only the most insignificant of reasons or catalysts to ensue! The Right
to be Right has left a bloody trail leading us
to the present.
If we accept the lie that we are separate, we
then can justify prejudice and dehumanization, which leads to violence and all
sorts of inhumane behavior resulting from separation. Separation doesn't sound so violent. However, violence is the inevitable
offspring of separation.
Separation serves to validate violence. We would not purposefully harm ourselves or our loved
ones. It is much easier when we
adopt an us and them attitude. Yet, we are one another. We are equal,
but not separate. All of humankind
is equally eternally spirit, living in human form temporarily.

understand the unitary principle of man - knowing that there are not separate
men or separate individuals, but that the whole man idea is one. He must know that all mankind is
connected with every other part of mankind, all geared together by the
omnipresent Light of God which centers all as ONE and motivates all as
ONE. Until man knows that
separation from God is impossible, even for one second, he does not begin to have
