Separation Vs. All-encompassing

Something I've been trying to express for quite some time about creating unity in our uniqueness and recognizing that we are the same, even when we are different.

 “When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. 

Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. 

When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. 

So a man who is seeking to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.” 

― Jiddu Krishnamurti
