We have been hearing for sometime about the concept that we are all one. Recently I learned about the Aspen trees, which I believe is one of the best examples we have, in order to understand this concept.
The aspens typically grow in large clonal colonies derived from a single seedling, and spreading by means of root suckers; new stems in the colony may appear at up to 30–40 metres from the parent tree. Each individual tree can live for 40–150 years above ground, but the root system of the colony is long-lived. In some cases, this is for thousands of years, sending up new trunks as the older trunks die off above ground.
In other words, there aren’t a bunch of trees; there is only one tree, but we perceive them as several trees, but they are connected to each other, one of them wouldn’t be able to survive by itself, because it is not a separate tree from the others, they all are one single being.
It is the same with us, we perceive each other as a separate being, we perceive ourselves as separated from everyone, though we are not, we are one single being, we are all connected by the same living energy, we all share the same root: God.
