Here is a dialogue based on a story from one of the most famous Upanishads, the Chhandogya Upanishad. Shaunaka and Abhipratarin were two sages who worshipped the universal soul.
Once, as they sat down to eat, a beggar came and asked for some food.
“We cannot spare anything for you,” Shaunaka said.
“Learned sirs, whom do you worship?” the beggar asked.
“The universal soul,” Abhipratarin replied.
“Ah! It means that you know that the universal soul fills the entire world.”
“Yes, yes. We know that.” The sages nodded.
“If the universal soul fills the whole world, it fills me too. Who am I, but a part of the world?” the beggar asked.
“You speak the truth, O young brahmin.”
“Then, O sages, by not giving me food, you are actually denying food to the universal soul.”
The sages realised the truth of what the beggar said, and shared their food with him.
