The Eternal Joy of the Universe
Everything in this universe comes together to bring human existence on earth. We are all interconnected, each one of us made of non-self elements.
Look at a flower, along with flower elements, it also has many non-flower elements. These elements are sunlight, earth, water, time and sky. Just like humans, everything in the universe comes together to make this flower. Compost helps the flower to blossom, and the flower then becomes a part of the compost. Similarly, we are also made of many non-self elements like the sun, moon, sky, water, trees, air, father, mother, and our ancestors.
Creation of Self is not possible without non-self elements.
By looking at a human being, a flower or any creature, we can see the whole universe or the cosmos. We can see the nature of our inter-being. One is made of many.
Before God created us, he created vegetation and the animal kingdom. Without them, our existence was not possible. When we take care of God’s other creations, we take care of the whole of mankind.
During this talk, Gurmeet will expand on this interconnectedness and explain how this understanding can result in ultimate contentment.
