' The embodiment of oneness '...

Oneness is not some fancy belief system or grand philosophy. It is beyond thought. It is a truth that cannot be expressed. It is simply lived effortlessly, naturally, and lovingly.

Kabir once said, “Many understand the drop merging into the ocean but few understand the ocean merging into the drop.” Beyond the conceptualization and the experience of Oneness, there is an embodiment of Oneness. This is the living truth of Oneness, embodied in the human form. As the old saying goes, you will know him “by his fruits.” It is easy to walk around uttering fancy words such as “it’s all One” or claiming to have had a Oneness experience. But the degree to which one is living in separation and conflict with others and resisting or escaping from what is in this moment is most telling.

The embodiment of Oneness is an exalted way of pointing to simple presence itself. When life is lived in this moment without resistance, conflict, and separation—when love and peace infuse each action and relationship—Oneness is embodied. The ocean has merged into the drop.
