Excerpt About Oneness
The Enlightened PerspectiveWhen you realize the enlightened perspective, the objective reality of no separateness between anything—no separateness between the physical world and the Absolute, no separateness between the Absolute and God, no separateness between God and Colorado, no separateness between Colorado and Khomeini, no separateness between Khomeini and you—everything is connected. Whatever you can conceive, whatever you can experience, whatever you can imagine is one. If you can divide that one in half, then it’s not oneness, it's twoness. That means, again, you've brought separation and the Basic Fault. So if you believe that presence of true nature comes to you from outside, if you believe God is separate from you, if you believe that enlightenment is someplace to get to, you're still operating from the perspective of the Basic Fault. That’s not to say that you may not experience things that way. You can see God sitting on a throne, you can see angels, but these are intermediate experiences. You still carry the central perspective of object relations.
