We may show up as a root, a leaf or a branch, but there’s just us in the picture no matter what we look like.
Likewise we may ensoul many individuals. They’re not really apart from us because WE ARE THEY, showing up in different times and places (remembering there's only one us and one time).
Because what we know best is our own reality, the leaf, for example, may forget his cousins — branch and root. But we all work together to make the tree — who we are.
The oversoul of ALL is Spirit and Source, a living pattern of love and wholeness that exists in all living things (that's everything). In the sense of oversoul, we are Spirit and Spirit is the real actor.
