INFINITELY SIMPLE AND INTEGRAL
In spiritual infinity all comparison is out of place. There is no smaller or greater, or hierarchy of claims, privileges and rights; and valuation remains unclouded because of the unmarred perception of the One in each and all. Since everyone in creation is not only in spiritual infinity but IS that indivisible spiritual infinity, then everyone is first in importance and no one is second.
In social life the recognition of the spiritual infinity of the Truth will mean a challenge to individualism as well as collectivism. It initiates a new way of thinking in terms of an indivisible totality, and it discards all the relative values of comparison in favor of the recognition of the intrinsic worth of everything.
In a civilization based upon a true idea of the spiritual infinity of the Truth, there will therefore be no problems of majority and minority, of rivalry and competition, and of those comparisons and laborious assessments that so often become a shelter for pride and separative ego. Life then will be infinitely simple and integral, because the illusions that create rifts and complexities will all have disappeared.
