Ignorance of the Spiritual reality of every living 'thing', is the root cause of all human difficulties. This ignorance may even be more prevalent in the Churches of the World than it is 'outside' of the Church. The problem is due to the belief that every one (every John or Jane Doe) has being of themselves, when in fact the only One who has 'being' is the Source. Call it God, Allah, the Father, Life, or whatever you believe the Source to be. Sooner or later I will put this into words where even little children can see it. Every 'human' child that has ever been born on Planet Earth, has been (and always will be) God (the Father) in the infant stage of development! Life (God) gave being to each of us, by 'becoming' each of us, by 'being' each of us, as a Vine gives being to its branches! The Father, is the "I" within us. Only the Father has being! There is ONLY the Vine, the Father! The ONLY difference between 'Jesus' and the rest of us is that He functioned AS the FATHER, whereas 'we' (every one else) function as the 'person' our parents created when they named us! Can it be anymore simple than that? We are all One, and God (the Father) is that ONE, and the 'person' our parents created when they named us, is but the illusion in which the whole of humanity has been functioning since the creation of "Adam"!
"Male and female created HE them and blessed them and called their name (s) Adam" (A 'dam', an 'obstruction'!) Our names have hidden our True identity, our Divine identity! No matter who or what we are looking at, we are looking at God manifesting as that 'thing', and as that 'One'! There is no one besides or other than the Father. "He who hath seen me, hath seen the Father"! These words were not spoken by Jesus, they were spoken by the Father! (Read Matthew 10:20)
He who was known as 'Jesus', was actually the Father functioning AS the Father! (He was just the Father being the Father, God being God!), His disciples saw Him as being nothing more than the man they knew as 'Jesus'! They had no idea that they too were God embodied, the Source embodied! Whether we be male or female, there is only God, the Father! And humanity as a whole is oblivious of this Truth!
What could surpass the realization that the "I" within us, is God, the Father"?
