The world is filled with individuals. Not simply individual people, but unique things, experiences, and thoughts. Thus, the idea of achieving oneness, or connectedness with all things, can seem improbable or even impossible. We are surrounded by an astounding diversity of perception that might be called distractions on the path to oneness. But oneness does not mean same-ness, nor does it seek to homogenize the universe. Instead, oneness is an opportunity to see diversity as the palette of colors from which the universe is painted. It is also a powerful method of dispelling loneliness, despair, isolation, and the feeling that you are all alone because, when you are one, you are not only in the universe, but also the universe is within you.

The cause of so much loneliness and so many feelings of separation is simply that too often we fail to understand the interrelationship of all living things. Each of us is an indispensable part of the universe and all life has emerged from the same vital energy and material elements. We breath the same air, eat the same food, drink the same water, and traverse the same emotional paths. What blocks our ascendancy into oneness with creation, what acts as the barrier, is self-importance, the desire to accumulate, egocentricity, and consciousness of the body. Yet common factors unite us all. We thrive in security, in peace, in times of abundance, and when we accept that all living things are dependant on other living things. Oneness is an expression of an ever-lasting relationship that can awaken and fulfill because comprehending your part of universal unity can free you from the limitations of isolation.

Existence grows upward and outward like a tree, with each of us representing individual blossoms on humanity's branch, and nature represented by innumerable branches. We diverge as we grow, but remain parts of a united whole. Achieving oneness means stretching out your consciousness with humility to accept and be lovingly accepted by the great stock of diversity which makes up that whole.
