From the point of view of Self-Realization or enlightenment, there are no individuals. The Self, or God, exists as all manifestation.

The life force continuous to act but its thoughts and actions are no longer limited to an individual; they become the total manifestation.

Simply see that you are at the center of the universe, and accept all things and beings as parts of your infinite body. When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself, you have understood the great truth… ~ Lao Tzu
When we suddenly awake to the realization that there is no barrier, and never has been, one realizes that one is all things…mountains, rivers, grasses, trees, sun, moon, stars, universe are all oneself. There is no longer a division or barrier between myself and others, no longer any feeling of alienation or fear there is nothing apart from oneself and therefore nothing to fear. Realizing this results in true compassion. Other people and things are not seen as apart from oneself but, on the contrary, as one’s own body… ~ Bruce Lee (From the book, Bruce Lee: Fighting Spirit: A Biography)

Souls don’t have races or sexes or religions. They are beyond artificial divisions… ~ Dr. Brian Weiss
