23. Oneness

Oneness with the physical world
Teaches us
How to divide,
How to separate,
How to limit
How to bind;
It teaches us
How to destroy the thing
That we feel is real in us,
Which is love.

Oneness with the spiritual world
And spiritual life
Shows us
How to give,
How to serve,
How to grow into
How to become a divine being,
The Being Supreme
Who embodies the Love of the
World Beyond.
Sri Chinmoy, Union-Vision, Agni Press, 1975
