original unity

The deepest level of communication is not communication, but communion. It is wordless. It is beyond words, and it is beyond speech, and it is beyond concept. Not that we discover a new unity. We discover an older unity. My dear Brothers [and Sisters], we are already one. But we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are.

Thomas Merton

It is time to recover our original unity. One that has already been.

So be it.

And if you have never communed with a've been missing out.

It's a special form of unity for sure - the kitty communing.

Interesting, isn't it, how we always seem to need to create something new, when the truest truths are already there waiting for us to accept.

Glorious! And it fits in perfectly with the speech I listened to this morning by Jeddah Mali. Now, I just have to continue to remind myself of this.

I often feel that kitties know far more than we humans. On unity, "We are already one. But we imagine that we are not." How would the world change if we could see this? If we could see that we are one with the Saddam Husseins, the Dick Cheneys, and the Muammar Gadaffis of the world? How would we change?
