Cosmos of the universe follows patterns. The patterns are formed with the energy. We are all part of this nature in collective form, we are all same since we are made up of same energy. The entire universe is inter-connected. A leaf is grown out of the energy of sun, water, earth, air and sky (the five element of nature) so we are, so how come are we different from the leaf? it is just that we are different patterns of the same energy. Every human being is a different and a unique pattern.
We neither die nor born only our pattern changes every time we exit from the body and these patterns are defined by our ‘karma”, the actions. Our habits, likings, disliking, desires are all different from the other person though the life force is same within us, it’s because the geometry of energy is different in each human being which makes every being unique.
Animal is the one of the kinds of enumerable patterns, human beings, insects all are different patterns of the same energy.
Every human being himself is a unique pattern. there are no two beings ever exist in this universe which are same. This is the fundamental truth and when we compare two beings, we commit an error. Every human being therefore has to accept and respect every pattern created by the God, no pattern is ever good or bad, everything is just as is and is perfect as per his/her/its own level of consciousness, the level of consciousness is highest in human beings and lowest in trees and plants, but it does not mean the trees and plants are anyway less important than the human beings, it is just that, as we raise our level of consciousness out patters also get upgraded gradually from trees to animals and then ultimately to human form. The mere knowledge of this differentiation takes us out of the differences, and we can see the entire creation as one.
