When I work in order to bestow, in “love your neighbor as yourself,” I obtain my soul.
“Love thy neighbor” means connecting with your friend into one single integral system. A system of full mutual connection envelops all of humanity in intelligence and thought, in heart and desire. All of us together are a single system; we are connected between us, and we are already beginning to discover our full dependence on each other. It is up to us to help each other enter into the general system as rapidly as possible and to begin to connect it together. Then we will begin to feel not only where the contact and connection with each of the others is, but we will also feel the higher, eternal life that flows through this integral system.
