This Is Who You Really Are

A story about short sightedness and insignificance.


Meet Skin Cell. A proud cell, it thinks itself superior to other cells because it inhabits the outermost layer of Body.

This is Blood Cell. A bigot. It considers itself above the rest and completely separate from Skin Cell. It argues so because it is pumped by, what it calls, the one and only core of Body.

These cells disagree all the time over the answers to old questions. They ask who is Body? What is Body's real name? How does Body wants us to behave?

Their arguments are so small, though, that they are silent to Body - the higher observer.

Immune Cell, a fervent nationalist, equally thinks itself more perfect and completely separate from the rest, with a right to rule over others.

Therefore it starts attacking the other cells of Body.

No good news.

Truth is these differences would be so insignificant compared to the dimension Body inhabits, that they would be practically nonexistent. But not the harm they would create. Body's awareness does not center on what an individual cell looks like, its boundaries, or its individual location. Body can feel though - it feels when cells are out of harmony and not working together. 

Their harmonious coexistence is what makes Body strong.

As we scale up, things are similar.


In this crowd we all look like cells under a microscope or tiny dots. Some of these dots call the highest observer A, some call it B, others C. In this crowd some dots are white, others brown, others yellow. Does it matter? In this crowd three dots together represent a happy family. But wait, are we talking about a family with two moms? Two dads? Does it matter?

Again gender, physicality, or the shape of the boundaries that define us are so small compared to the dimension this higher observer inhabits that they become practically nonexistent:

What defines humans as physical entities is of little transcendence and invisible but their ripples of good or negative influence in the world are not.

For this higher perspective, I trust, form, definitions, name or protocol become irrelevant. It feels though. It feels when we are out of harmony the moment we fall for the belief that we are separate from one another.

If we could only see the big picture.
