Excerpt About Unity
The State We Call "Unity"Experiencing oneself as the immediacy of pure presence, or as the expanse that is the inner nature of everything, we experience the state we call "unity." It is the experience of true nature as if from the inside, from its own side, and not from the side of manifest forms. We see that it is an indivisible experience, a single medium with no inner distinctions, similar to the empty sky. The other kind of experience, that of oneness, is experiencing pure presence from the vantage point of the manifest forms. We experience ourselves as the oneness of all these forms, that all the forms constitute one Reality, whose nature is pure presence. We are aware of pure presence as the constituting ground of everything, but we are not in the midst of the expanse of true nature, but in the midst of the surface of manifestation.
