The whole creation came into being by the 'Word' or 'Naam' – the God-into-Expression Power.
The whole creation is the temple of God. There is no place where He is not. In minerals life is sleeping; in plants life is dreaming; in birds and animals life is awakening; and in man life is awake. As such, we are brothers of all creatures, of plants, of birds and animals. So the flowers and trees, sparrows and doves are as members of our own Order. How simple, pure, loving and beautiful they are! We should learn lessons of leading lives of purity, holy, simplicity and Divine love from them.
We should love all, even the sinners and robbers. We should not chop off the whole tree, but give it a chance to grow up again. We breathe the same air, we drink the same water, we bask in the same sun and live on the same mother earth. Day and night are two servants who are bringing us up.
Man is the highest in all creation. Those who love God, should love all of them. He is immanent in every form. There are sermons in stones and books in rivulets. We should live in fellowship with all creatures, with all life. Creation is one family in God. All Rishis and Saints had the vision of Cosmic Unity and loved Dame Nature. 'The whole creation is the house of God and He resideth in it' – (Nanak). The Rishis sang, 'Ishava-syam Idam Servam'. (All that is, is a vesture of the Lord).
