The seed and the plant are different forms or expressions of one Being, but they are different. They inter-are, but they are not the same. That is the mystery. We are made of the same nature, and we are distinct forms of that same nature. The fact that there are different and distinct expressions of one nature does not preclude harmony, and pretending that there is no difference does not preclude exploiting and killing. We are one. We are many different and distinct expressions of the one, and that does not preclude that we inter-are and we are one. Actually, realizing that we are different and distinct expressions of the one supports and fosters harmony.
