Oneness is not only a profound and personally life-changing experience, but a perspective that can transform the world by bringing more love, light, compassion, and truth to the world. Oneness connects us all. We are all affecting each other in every moment, and recognizing this to whatever degree we can is transformative. Everything is included in this oneness, which all spiritual teachers and enlightened leaders point to. In embracing everything with an attitude of its essential worth and value, we can go beyond the illusions of separation to a simple resting in the beauty and mystery of all of reality. This book is a collection of articles and essays, which continually point to this oneness and the all-inclusiveness of life. In it, you will find responses to many common questions posed by seekers, which will help you in your search for greater peace, love, and understanding.
May you find some truth in these words, and may that truth open your heart and set you free.

Sample from the book:
"The biggest spiritual truth is the truth of oneness. Everything that exists is part of a wholeness, a unified field that underlies reality. This is a radical concept because it seems to contradict our direct experience, where it appears that there are many different and separate things. Your body seems separate from my body, from the chair, and from everything else. And yet, two things can be very different without being separate. Your thumb is clearly different from your little finger, but are they separate? Or are they both also part of something bigger: your hand? Can’t the same be said about any two parts of your body? They are different but not separate.
What about two things that seem so clearly separated in space, such as two bodies on different sides of the room? How can they be part of one thing when one can clearly see the space between them? While they are obviously not connected in the same way that two fingers on the same hand are, could they be connected in more subtle ways?
Right now, every object near you is affecting you. There are several different forms of energy flowing between you and every other nearby object, including light, heat, gravity, sound, and electricity. In addition, molecules are escaping from your body and the nearby objects, even solid inanimate objects. These molecules circulate in the space between you and every object and also land on and even enter your body. With every breath, you are breathing in some of the furniture and walls and other people in the room right now. In fact, in every breath is at least one atom that was also at one time inhaled by any other person you can name in history. There is even evidence that every single atom affects every other atom no matter how far apart they are. If that is the case, where does your body actually stop and the apparent other objects or bodies begin?
What about the space itself that you and other objects appear in? Where does space stop and your body begin? Is there still space where your body is located? As subatomic physics has shown, even physical objects are 99.9999% space, and the subatomic particles themselves are actually just clouds of probabilities. Are there really any boundaries in this infinite sea of space that we and everything else exist in?"
