Best selling author Larry Dossey, MD, has been writing about oneness, not as a theory but as a fact. He recently posted on HuffPost: “Throughout history many eminent scientists have glimpsed this fact. This includes Nobel physicist Erwin Schrödinger, who proclaimed, "The overall number of minds is just one ... In truth there is only one mind." And the distinguished physicist David Bohm asserted, "Deep down the consciousness of mankind is one."
No doubt this assertion from the scientific community will persuade some of those leery of philosophy to take the idea of oneness more seriously. Hopefully some will even have the experience. That’s an entirely different matter than just entertaining a new belief.
How does the experience of oneness happen? Actually, the better question to ask is, How do we deny the prevailing experience of oneness? We’ve become clever and persistent and very successful at that. But in a moment – sometimes provoked by extreme stress or profound relaxation – it comes. Dr. Dossey quoted one of his own readers: "I felt there was no separation between anything. I felt as if I were united with everything, and it was wonderful!"
Oneness, the experience, is wonderful. I invite you all, during this holiday season, to make this the real gift we share with each other.
