How is Oneness Experienced?





The power of oneness, that is to say unity, begins as an internal experience. It comes from the mind’s way of thinking or discerning. It is intelligent discernment that gives power to oneness. We have studied and meditated a great deal on the way things truly are, or ultimate truth. This kind of study and mediation contributes to an ability to conceptualize unity, sustain a holistic way of thinking, and foster an all-inclusive, and broad universal vision. 

Then what about the individual’s relationship to society:
How an individual serves society, and how society serves the individual?
There are many qualities an individual needs to contribute to societal unity and oneness. 
Most importantly, an individual needs courage and willingness to sacrifice for the good of the community and society as a whole. In turn, society needs to exist for the good for each individual. Thus when society and the individuals that make up society are mutually supportive, mutually self-sacrificing, social unity and harmony is possible.
