When fully felt, these words may transform the way we relate to all non-humans, the natural world, life itself.
The most obvious message this sign imparts is simply to be kind, benevolent, and benign, with the added suggestion that not doing so may result in things unfortunate, and unkind.
More than merely suggesting human kindness Adi Da’s admonition summarizes a profound wisdom.
“Be Kind To All the Non-Humans,” invites us to embrace the spiritual awareness that all life is kindred, family, that all beings, regardless of appearances are connected, and at heart the same.
“All Is One.”
To be truly Kind is to Love, transcending separate and separative self in naturally surrendered communion with the universal Divine Being.
Adi Da calls each of us to Be of that Kind, presuming only inherent unity with all otherwise apparently separate beings and things – prior to time, and space, and thought.
“or Else!” describes the alternative to being kind, which is to live apart, presuming separateness, disconnected, actively discounting the Prior Unity Condition of all things.
Thus, Adi Da Samraj compassionately suggests, “Be the same Kind, To, or as, All the Non-Humans,” and all apparent others, or be only “Else!”
