Every'thing' in truth is but a piece of the one 'thing' that is the source of all 'things'. This is the core theme underlying the teachings of both Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha) and Jesus of Nazerath. Despite initial outward impressions perpetuated by the ill informed masses that these two mens messages are in opposition to one another, their own words paint complementary pictures. There are many examples demonstrating this, consider the following passages extracted from both mens teachings...
Both men discussed the foolishness of the pursuit of vanity...
The Gospel of Thomas verse 36:
"Jesus said, "Do not fret, from morning to evening and from evening to morning, [about your food--what you're going to eat, or about your clothing--] what you are going to wear." -Jesus-
"Fools follow after vanity, they are ignorant and careless. The wise keep awareness as their best treasure. Do not follow after vanity" -The Buddha-
'The ALL' (God) is the source of all. Therefore all glory in truth ultimately belongs to The ALL. A man who prides himself on the 'ownership' of material items is an unaware fool who is blind in his heart and cannot see that like the very items he would lust after, he himself is but a piece of the 'ONE'. Yet the fool marches forward under the delusional pretext that some type of external glory may be achieved from the acquisition of these energetic expressions of 'God' (material items).
"(verse 36 continued) ...As for you, when you have no garment, what will you put on? Who might add to your stature? That very one will give you your garment."
"These sons belong to me, and this wealth belongs to me; with such thoughts a fool is tormented. One does not belong to oneself; how much less sons and wealth?" -The Buddha-
