The Illusion of Separation
If we were to look around a beautiful garden and observe the trees, plants, grass and perhaps the little insects as they run around in their daily life, we would quite naturally say that there is definitely separation to be observed here.
For this is what we can see with our own eyes and feel with our own hands - separation. And this is reinforced again and again in each and every moment here in the physical realm and thus, we condition our minds towards this idea.
Unfortunately, it is utterly impossible to see the interconnected nature of things through these physically minded eyes.
