All-encompassing

Divine Definitions: (1) The whole of everything; totally inclusive; replete; (2) Going completely around, enveloping; nothing outside the embrace of; self-contained; (3) Exerting utter control over all domains; (4) Total accomplishment of objectives; (5) All-pervasive

Comment: Within a system there are parts. Each system is enclosed by the extents of its domain. Every part is encompassed within the system. The All-encompassing Being includes all of the individual parts, all of the separate systems, and all of the systems together in a single harmony. In order for there to be a harmony of parts, there has to be parts. Without parts a thing is simply itself, whole and complete. God is both.

Quote: The span of a God’s love can hold within its vision the existences of all individuals at one time in an infinite loving glance, seeing each with all his or her peculiar characteristics and tendencies.
     Such a God’s glance would delight in each person’s difference from each other person. This would not be a blanket love, a soupy porridge of a glance in which individuality melted, but a love based on a full understanding of each individual.
     The emotion of love brings you closest to an understanding of the nature of All-That-Is [God]. — Dorothy Jane Roberts (1929–1984) The Seth Material {1970}

Historical Reference: The concept of Purusha refers to pure unbounded consciousness, the indwelling God-essence of the self, and the Universal Principle that is eternal, indestructible, and all-pervasive. (c. 1500–c. 500 BCE) — Hinduism

WHOLE
Human Definitions: (1) in sound health; not diseased or injured; (2) intact; not broken, damaged, or defective; (3) containing all elements or parts; entire; complete

Quote: An act is not, as young men think, like a rock that one picks up and throws, and it hits or misses, and that’s the end of it. When that rock is lifted, the earth is lighter; the hand that bears it heavier. When it is thrown, the circuits of the stars respond, and where it strikes or falls the universe is changed. On every act the balance of the whole depends. … Having intelligence, we must not act in ignorance. Having choice, we must not act without responsibility. — Ursula K. Le Guin (1929-2018) The Farthest Shore

Reflection: As the individual grows in grace and wisdom, they help the Whole to become more complete. As the Whole is evolving to its ideal, it helps the individual to become more perfect. It all works together. Thus, things eventually become more ordered and less chaotic.
