The Vitalness of One Mind

“This is why the One Mind is Vital. If all individual minds are united via the One Mind, for which there is impressive evidence, it follows that at some level we are intimately connected with one another and all sentient life. This realization makes possible a recalibration of the self-oriented Golden Rule, from “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” to “Be kind to others, because in some sense they are you.”

The realization of the One Mind carries us beyond the isolation and frustration of the separate individual struggling against impossible odds. Life becomes more than a wearisome journey from the cradle to the crematorium. A felt unity with all other minds conveys renewed meaning, purpose, and possibility and a sense of the sacredness of all things.”
