Our Oneness and Diversity is Our Humanity: To
say 'I am' 'I' must include in that 'being that
what I am' all the prospects, possibilities and
potentials of that state of being and becoming
and, therefore, when 'I' says: 'I am' 'I'
includes or, rather, posits the entire
prospects, possibilities and potentials of
'unity' and 'diversity' of that being in it.
Being in Unity and being in Diversity should be
seen as the Sun being where it is and yet being
still the same thing in being wherever its
lights, heats and energies reach. Both signify
the same being: and for us, the humanity: we are
one in our diversity as we are one in our
We are One
In love as Romeo and Juliet, humans would
call out, Wherefore art thou Romeo?
In expressing love and longing humans
would sing out Rusalka like La bellissima Anna Netrebko
Or out of desperate soul-wrenching
longing they would seek to send out messages through to their Beloved by
Clouds as Kalidasa's Yaksha sought to do
In celebrating a breakthrough humans
would call out Eureka as Archimedes did
In pleading for one's love humans would
sing out like Renée Fleming in O mio babbino caro
In accepting one's destiny with despair,
pain and futility human would call out like Macbeth
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
In reaching youth and finding life's new
and ever opening avenues of joys and wonders awe-inspiring, thrilling
and magical humans would sing and dance as Natasha did in the deep depth
of the Russian countryside, being the most beautiful a human being as
she would and could ever be, at that moment, as her uncle played folk
music in Tolstoy's War and Peace
In agony and anguish humans would cry out
like P. B, Shelley's Prometheus
No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Has its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, for ever!
the depth of separation and love humans would sing out
Ach, die Gärten bist
ach, ich sah sie mit solcher
Hoffnung. Ein offenes Fenster
im Landhaus—, und du tratest beinahe
mir nachdenklich heran. Gassen fand ich,—
du warst sie gerade gegangen,
und die spiegel manchmal der Läden der Händler
waren noch schwindlich von dir und gaben erschrocken
mein zu plötzliches Bild.—Wer weiß, ob derselbe
Vogel nicht hinklang durch uns
gestern, einzeln, im Abend?
Or like Pablo
tus manos abrieron los puños delicados
y dejaron caer suaves signos sin rumbo,
tus ojos se cerraron como dos alas grises,
mientras yo sigo el agua que llevas y me lleva:
la noche, el mundo, el viento devanan su destino,
y ya no soy sin ti sino solo tu sueño.
Or as Paul
Il pleut dans mon coeur comme il pleut sur la ville.
Quelle est cette langueur qui pénètre mon Coeur?
expressing a truth a human would find means as
Einstein did and expressed it
E = mc2
find a way to express one's inner truth as one finds them like René
Descartes and express it
in harmony, in happiness, in love, in care, in compassion, in being
graceful, in being kind, in being thoughtful, in being considerate, in
thankfulness, in being in and among family, friends, community and
society, in achieving and creating, in singing and in celebration, in
pain, in agony, in suffering, in despair, in longing, in facing
challenges, in drawing out strength and steel as required, in feeding
hope, in keeping faith, in short, in being human, there is no difference
between two humans regardless of their form, shape, colour, stature,
physique, nationality, religion, language, gender, class, status etc.
have the common language of our humanity which is our humanity itself.
That is the ultimate human language in which we can and do connect and
communicate without the need of any other human tongue as and when we
must when mere humanity connects us together .
when one is in agony, a soldier, mortally wounded, on a battlefield,
while another soldier of another land, finds the dying soldier and stays
with him until the end; holding him, the other soldier just sits there
being a human, next to the dying one: yet neither speaks the other's
Or when a
nurse does the same to a dying patient whose language she does not speak
nor does the patient understand her tongue. Yet she sits there next to
him, holding his hand and he dies holding her hand ( a human hand)
knowing that he was being connected to a human being who sat there with
him as he departed.
what we have, humanity which is our property, as oxygen's property is
to help things burn, light's property is to illumine things and
at the same time humanity is our relations, our connections, our
transactions, our creations, our imaginations, our hopes, faiths and
loves. There is nothing bigger on earth to aspire to but to strive to
seek to be the best of this humanity for this is large enough, infinite
enough a jacket that is capable of being our true home as 'identity'
because its shape and size fits us perfectly as it is as big as the
Universe as we ourselves are; no other jacket of identity does or would
fit us. We are one.
At the core we are
elementally, fundamentally and inalienably one. We are one the way a
human physiology is one in which trillions of cells are connected
together into an unimaginably complex 'tree of life' that form the
'person' of one human being, that is the entire Universe in microcosm.
This is the One Humanity we are in which each one of us is a 'cell'
connected to the wider 'grid' of cell-humanity. Until we learn to
replicate and follow the most sophisticated, most complex, most
efficient and most productive human physiology as to how magnanimously
it works at all times, in most cases, in most of the times and become
like it metaphorically in which each and all cells work together in
unison to achieve the 'best possible outcome' of all our endeavours: to
achieve, foster, regulate, maintain and continue 'homeostasis'.
In Medicine it is
called homeostasis, in philosophy, this is what we are calling Natural
Justice and it comes with Liberty and Equality.
And that is where,
how and when and why we are the Humanion and that is where Regine
would dream us heading.
Shall we make a go?
