If you see no difference between you and the elephant at some level, you are good to go. Our analytical mind tends to analyze, categorize, cut things in piece to understand things around us. On the other hand, some part of us feel the oneness of everything.
The society we live in now has analytical tendency and it gives us some misleading about the world. We are part of the world and the world is just one. Do you feel that way?
As you know, water consists of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen. None of them has the quality of water. The sum is not simply the collection of parts. It's totally different from its parts. In the same way, to understand the world, you shouldn't only break them down into small pieces by using your analytical mind. Rather, grasp it as a total by using your intuitive mind. Then, you may see something you couldn't before. And then, you will behave differently.
