Baha’u'llah has written
“The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. ”
“So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.”…

Abdul Baha has written
“Unity is necessary to existence. Love is the very cause of life, on the other hand, separation brings death. In the world of material creation…all things owe their actual life to unity. The elements which compose wood, mineral, or stone are held together by the law of attraction..So is it with the great body of humanity.”

Contemplating on these words, I realise that we will not solve our problems be it environmental, racial harmony, the global economy etc, until we achieve this unity. Yet, we have it all backwards. We have this idea that unity is this far off goal for which we must first solve all these problems to achieve.

Having it backwards is why we seem to be going deeper and deeper into the troubles of our own making.
