There is only one being that IS, and every person, every animal, every plant, and even every sun, every planet and every other heavenly body is only an instrument for the manifestation of this one and only being that is.
The same self that speaks through my mouth as through yours and through all living creatures. The only difference is that not every living creature knows perfectly its own self and consequently is not able to manifest all characters of the self. But anybody who knows the self completely and perfect can manifest all the characters that exist in the universe, because all these characteristics are various aspects of the one and only being that is, the self.
