To them competition is the essence of being human. They are compulsively concerned with being better in an exclusive way, and having the right to reject those who are not the best. Such people excel in arrogance rather than humility; in discrimination rather than in fellowship. Human equality does not pertain to the qualities and achievements of humans, but to being humane with humility. Humans who treat each other as equals are not under the impression that they are identical to each other. They are humane and inclusive in their attitudes towards each other---regarding each other as different expressions of their own cosmic unity. They do not regard each other as essentially separate objects; but rather as different expressions of an essential spiritual unity which transcends petty human distinctions. Human equality is related to the fact that at the beginning time all that is now, was together in one cosmic unity in one place and time. All humans have one cosmic origin, rather than multiple origins; have separated from one cosmic unity, rather than come together from separate conflicting origins. The quality of reflexive human relationships depend upon human attitudes which are reflective of human awareness of, or indifference towards, the cosmic unity of human origins. If human relationships are dominated by attitudes of objective separation and of conflict--- then union is not likely to be enjoyed. If human relationships are guided by attitudes which are reflective of a cosmic spiritual unity which is expressed in objective reality---then reunion is likely to be enjoyed in communion services of equality. As people seek peace and tranquility what they find depends greatly upon what attitudes they bring to their seeking, how they regard each other in their reunions, and whether they come together in competition or in cooperation.
