We cannot expect to know what joining is within the story of the world. There is no joining when we measure ourselves by such things as intelligence or skill, charisma or the desire to financially succeed, or any other standard whose purpose is to point out differences. The purpose of everything within the world that separation has made must make separation seem real. But it was the desire for “someone else” to share our guilt that gives rise to the power of separation. Accept the unreality of sin and guilt and separateness and there will be no reason not to love your brother as yourself.
