That elusive oneness…

Saturday, 21 August 2010 by

A few words about that elusive “oneness” so many people seek:

I’m often asked why we don’t feel the feeling of “oneness” with everything spoken about in certain religions. Why do we feel separate? Let’s take a look at this fascinating question.

Human beings are wired to navigate life by making distinctions. If you couldn’t make distinctions  you wouldn’t know what to eat. You wouldn’t know what’s good for you or what might harm you. You wouldn’t be able to recognize your friends. You wouldn’t know whether you were too hot or too cold. You wouldn’t be able to make choices, or learn from experience.

As I once heard Alan Watts say, to be a human being you need to be able to tell chalk from cheese.
