The oneness of the creation is a principle that can be stated at best as a wonderful idea and at worst as a very abstract thought meant only for philosophers and not a practical solution to the society. However in each generation thinkers have struggled to find solutions to the problems plaguing the society and nations at large. All religions or faiths, claiming solutions, have only led to increase in divisions and misunderstanding between them. This discussion is not about a solution, but an understanding of the principle of oneness between us. It lays the basis for understanding and mutual respect between people,irrespective of faith or geographical locations.
