In the pursuit of Oneness, all things play their part, whether its religion, science or politics. God is all in all, and there is nothing outside of God. The divine exists for us by virtue of our awareness, and all things are part and parcel of the plan. It is rather like a Life-Tree and its branches. One person likes the branch called Love; another the branch called Science; yet again another the branch called religion.
I need my hands and legs and most of my organs if not all, and they need me. In the same way, the Life-Tree and its branches, need each other. Here is a quote from the Gita, a wise Hindu scripture:
"That which does not exist, can never come into being.
That which exists, can never cease to be." - Sri Krishna
