Sharing the Same Boat

In this changing world
We are all travellers in the same boat.

Is universal peace possible? Only when we realise that our Self is not confined to our personal body and mind, but is one with the Self of all. Then we will know that none is outside or other—that the realm of the infinite Self includes and embraces all.

To those who have realised this unity, the ideal of universal peace is ever-achieved in their direct experience, which sees beyond the phenomenal world and with a superior faculty of understanding—prajna, spiritual wisdom. This is the ultimate evolution of our knowing faculties, which at present seem restricted to sense-perception and thought, convincing us of the reality, authority and potential menace of the world we see about us.
