Our Beliefs Only Seem to Divide Us

Here's a section from my essay, The Z-Theory:
Reality is one.
One reality emanates from one source. Only apprehensions, articulations, and applications are many.
Perceptions of reality are many.
Words articulating perceptions are even more numerous.
Revelations are new. Truth is timeless and unchanging.
Reality remains one as the infinite source unfolds out as the universe and everything in it, dispensing its plenitude upon all things.
Since reality is one, it is only languages that are many. What seems to separate is language, not reality itself. Words, expressing beliefs as well as other attempts to apprehend and articulate, appear different and separate. But this is all they are: words... different fragmentary descriptors of the one thing.
Therefore, the diversity of world-views and words as legitimate attempts to understand and articulate reality is acknowledged and respected.
All religions, theologies, and philosophies, both personal and corporate, casual and organized, have the right to exist.
Therefore, the value of language is not dismissed. Every attempt to understand reality and every attempt to articulate it has value.
Their level of value depends on how language and actions collaborate with the unfolding nature of reality, that is the unfolding, subsummation, and reconciliation of all things.
