Divine paradox: being individual and one

The relationship between the relative and the absolute, both being individual, can be compared to the sun and the sunrays, or, in more abstract terms, to ‘the whole’ and its innumerable ‘parts’.  God as the Whole is one, undivided and indivisible (=individual), and we as individual souls are part of the Whole.  How can the undivided and indivisible One divide itself into innumerable parts?  How can the One become many and still remain one, unchanged and individual?

An enlightening answer is given by divine revelations and self-realized mystics.  They say the the One’s subdivision into innumerable parts is absolute and real but not dividing and separating (just as the sunrays, though being “individual”, are never separated from the sun).  Due to an act of free will, however, some parts can forsake their consciousness of being a part of the Whole and start an ego trip of mis-identification (maya).  From God’s absolute perspective, they are still connected to the Whole, but from the standpoint of the fallen living entity, this connection is non-existent because it is no longer part of his consciousness.

In other words, everything is a question of consciousness–separation as well as oneness.  The question therefore is: In what state of being (consciousness) can one transcEnd the illusory separation?  How can we simultaneously be individual and one [with the Whole]?

There is only one state of being that resolves this divine paradox–and that is Love.  Love means to be united in consciousness.  It is the oneness of individuality.
