Separatist

You, my friend, are a separatist.

You separate “self” from “other.”

You separate “this” from “that.”

Left from right.
Right from wrong.
In from out.

You separate even when
you do not realize you are separating.

By thinking “I am man,”
you are separating from that which is not man.

By saying “this is red”
you are separating from that which is not red.

By imagining to be awoken
you are separating from those
you imagine as not woken.

This separation brings you
further away from unity.

The whole does not awaken separately.

The whole awakens as one.
It matters not what you do as a separatist.

You do not influence the whole.
You are the whole.

Individuals do not awaken.

The whole simply stops imagining separatists.
The whole simply stops imagining you.

You are imagined by the whole.
You are not separate from the whole.

Except in your imagination.

Which is not even YOUR imagination.

You are imaginary.

You are not a separatist.
