Here is there group description:
There are many ways of understanding and explaining "Oneness" and what it means. We could look at definition after definition and remain completely oblivious of what it truly is, and how it is. In this Group we will discuss and put into practice that witch I have done, and continue to learn to truly experience the 'Oneness' of the Divine.
That which has helped me above all else is 'A Course in Miracles' and Meditation. Being a devoted student of 'ACIM' and what it has done for me, I would like to bring you to the brake-throw world I have been experiencing deeply over the last several months.
The Deepest part of 'Oneness' in my experience, is - it is all ways, it is all the time, it is not something you learn or gain, or are gifted with. In every moment you are 'Oneness' always have been and always will be. The only thing to learn is the awareness of it, of 'Oneness'. If you grasp this idea, you are over half way there.
"The ego is nothing more than a part of your belief about yourself. Your other life has continued without interruption, and has been and always will be totally unaffected by your attempts to dissociate it." - A Course in Miracles
As I understand it so far, 'Oneness' is the true Divine beyond the body in witch we believe we live. In my study of many religions and beliefs, they speak of an eternal existence of yourself. To ACIM this is you, your true self and the idea we have of ourself on the surface is only a belief in our small perspective, what the course explains as "ego". Understanding 'Oneness' is only a state of mind, and the experiences will follow.
***To my knowledge the are 4 main theories on 'Oneness'. In SHORT and Quick here they are.
There is an underlining of energy in everything and everyone, all atoms are made of this 'Divine' flowing energy. Down to the subtle energy that makes your body is the same that makes up the wall, the Dog, the floor and all other people and things. According to this theory the energy is consciousness it self. It is in you, as you. In Everyone and everything. This truly One 'Blob' of energy is what you truly are. Hence 'We are One' energy.
In every moment we perceive our senses, these senses change and our body grows, decays and dies. In your mind there is a perceiver of these senses and changes, IT never changes, it is constant. What we have forgotten, under all that we have learned over the years and everything we know about yourself is this perceiver, consciousness it self. According to this theory this consciousness is the same in you as in me and everyone and thing. Hence 'We are One' consciousness.
Like a Dream, you fall asleep, you don't realize you have fallen asleep. You meet new people and drive your car, you get in wars and fall in love. You do things witch you feel good about, you do things you regret. Yet we forget we have dreamed, and all the people we met, and all the things we have done have only been in our mind. One Mind many faces, many things. Hence 'We are One' Mind.
All of these, all at the same time. As you may have noticed the three theories envelope the one(s) before it.
I believe through studying all of these is what has opened my awareness to experiencing 'Oneness' many times everyday. I invite you to do more then just talk about it, come and learn to experience 'Oneness' with us. 'We are One'
This Group is not for everyone, this group is made for the seriously dedicated people looking for truth. Nor will I be able to teach you truth, I can only teach you truth how I understand it and can explain it, Truth is what you find out for yourself. There are many paths to truth, as I stated before, your true 'Godly' Self is in every moment 'Godly' and at peace, perfect and in joy. If this is so, we really do not need to 'learn' it only become aware of it. Our goal is to remove the blocks to the awareness of this 'Godly' 'Oneness'.
"Yet the light is there. A cloud does not put out the sun." - A Course in Miracles
If we are to busy looking at out blocks (clouds) we can not see the radiant light that is always shining. Even as we choose to focus on the blocks (clouds) it dose not stop the sun from shining, it is always bright, and always radiant. So many people focus on the 'bad' and staying out of the 'bad' and in-turn are blind from the brilliant truth that radiates pure love and joy right behind it. As we come to realize this simple thought, we realize that no matter how 'bad' our world gets, or how troubled we are, we are always at peace in 'God'... Now thats true comfort.
So when I say it is not for everyone, I mean it is only for YOU!
