To experience Oneness is really not that difficult, it is just a question of waiting patiently and allowing it to happen. To allow means that you do not attempt to be in control of the moment, of the situation, you just accept what arises, and if nothing arises do not concern yourself about it because nothing arising is very, very close to Oneness. Oneness is a state of alert attention, a state in which you observe your feelings, your thoughts, your environment, noises and smells, people or things passing but do not engage with any of them so that you are always ready for and aware of the next thing, thought, feeling, or sensation that arises in this now moment, the only moment that has real meaning.
