Question 114: How can you expect people to jump from separation consciousness to oneness consciousness in one day?
It’s probably not possible unless a person has an epiphany, or a cosmic moment of clearness. The Gospel of Oneness keeps reminding us that we are all one in Spirit. If a person believes that truth in an intellectual way, then her consciousness will gradually come to actually realize the oneness of all life. This realization will come at different rates, usually according to how much thought, contemplation, and meditation one is willing to do. And you never know when that realization will come. For Zen Buddhists, it may come after years of sitting in silence, or it may come while chopping wood or carrying water. For Brother Lawrence, a famous Christian monk who lived in France during the 1600’s, it came to him convincingly one day while looking at a tree. A profound spiritual experience will convince a person of the oneness of life.
If a child is taught during her earliest years on into adulthood that all of life is one, then it will be a lot easier for that person to have that realization. But alas, most people have not been taught that all life is one. Christians and Muslims do not even stress the oneness of life. They mostly have a dualistic outlook of “us against them.” Buddhists, Taoists, and Hindus have a better sense of oneness, but they don’t live it as well as they could. They have their prejudices. So we have a world full of people whose habit is to see the world from a dualistic perspective, and habits are sometimes hard to change.
The changeover to the oneness perspective isn’t going to happen overnight. The Gospel of Oneness is spreading though. Its time is coming and when the number of people with oneness consciousness reaches a critical mass, its influence will grow swiftly.
“Technology is destructive only in the hands of people who do not realize that they are one and the same process as the universe. ” –Alan Watts
All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.”
–Swami Vivekananda
A spiritual journey is becoming what one has always meant to become and always was. One with God and Spirit.”—G.K. Griswold
