Unity - is not uniformity

Living in harmony with each other does not mean having to let yourself be absorbed by the collectivity. No, you are distinct as an individual, but while preserving your own individuality you have to create unity, work for unity. Look at the cells of the body: they are not identical; they do not fulfil the same functions – a heart cell is not a stomach cell. They each keep their individuality, but their affinities, the links between them, create the state of harmony known as health. Is that so difficult to understand? You wouldn’t ask a black person to become white, a Muslim or a Buddhist to become a Christian. In the past, Christians sent out missionaries to convert everyone on the planet, and what violence they often had to use to achieve this! All humans must keep what is particular to them, their differences, while at the same time establishing links with each other, allowing them to form a whole in the divine world.
