That's what oneness is about. And to quote John Muir: "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." And Albert Einstein: "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
Like the man who was aware of being one with the whole universe... He said, "Wow, I get it," but then realized that he was only a grain of sand as soon as the 'I' showed up. You are God when you don't think you are God; when you are simply in your heart and silent, you are in all hearts, all cells, all atoms, all spaces, all times.
As we relax and our mental activity settles down, like waves settling on an ocean, we become still. Consciousness reaches its most silent state, serene and unbounded. We realize that this is our true Self, beyond time and space... a presence in the ocean of loving consciousness.
This is saying that God (or universal consciousness if you prefer) is essentially loving, that's what God IS, that's what we ARE. A curious, creative, compassionate life force. Where the light does not shine is darkness, but for certain, that light is loving.
Perhaps the most profound of all quotes, since it integrates and describes all existence and experience. Love is our spiritual source, it’s our essential nature, and it is our purpose to express it in loving service.

I was left with nothing and after having fought this for so long, I felt in despair. But then one day when all was lost, walking on the cliffs by the sea, I had a sudden "aha" moment. I felt exhilarated and more powerful than at any time in my life, like I'd broken free of the bonds that were tying me down. I felt grateful to be alive and full with love. Sounds corny, but actually this was one of the best moments of my life. I realized that underneath all of this trauma was really a tremendous opportunity; it was clearing the decks for me to do what I'd always really wanted to do, what I was born to do. Continues...
