Are we all separate individuals or are we all connected as one universal consciousness? Or are we both simultaneously? This question has been asked repeatedly throughout the ages. Many believe that enlightenment is the realization that we are all one. There is no separation. We are one with the Divine.
“You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.”
~ Alan Wilson Watts
It is natural for all living beings to want to connect with each other.
Connecting is how we procreate. It is necessary for our very survival. When we are connected to others we feel loved, supported and more than who we are as an individual. When we feel connected to God as part of our very essence, we feel pure joy.
