This prayer teaches us the interconnectedness of the individual and the world.
December 2, 1912
So long as one element of the being, one movement of the thought is still subjected to outside influences, not solely under Thine, it cannot be said that the true Union is realised; there is still the horrible mixture without order and light, — for that element, that movement is a world, a world of disorder and darkness, as is the entire earth in the material world, as is the material world in the entire universe.
The text above is quoted from the Third Edition, 1954 (translation by Rishabhchand Samsukha)
