The concept of oneness is a broad spiritual term that refers to an awareness of the interconnectedness of all things. It is a deep connection to everything in the universe, to all life everywhere, regardless of time. When a person experiences oneness, they often speak of transcending all perceived boundaries or divisions between themselves and the world around them, realizing that such limits were complete illusions in the first place and opening themselves to a vast ocean of love and appreciation for the beauty inherent in everything. Many belief traditions discuss the topic of oneness, including Buddhism, Hinduism, and Christianity, but they all agree that any discussion of oneness cannot fully encompass it; it is a state of being that has to be experienced in order to be understood. Methods to invite the experience of oneness include meditation, spending time in community with others, mindfulness, and expanding your experience of love.
