We Are All One, But Why?

I’ll leave this open ended…

Why not?

The stuff that makes the stars also make us. This is what modern science tells us. This parallel’s with what Crowley wrote in 1900 also. “Every Man and every Woman is a Star”. The rest gets metaphysical of course. : )

To play devil’s advocate… Just because we are made up of the same stuff doesn’t make us the same. My definition of “same” is part of the same consciousness. We are just built from the same building blocks but are separate beings.

Different only on lower planes. But one at the center. One from the source.

Well if I am one with all that would be pretty boring. Yeah sure I all have molecules and cells in a scientific fashion. But I am a multiude of things that feeds onto the next with a ripple effect. But I am not an ant or a bird. I am many things

Are we really all one? Or are we so diverse that we only have ourselves?

I just feel like this idea has become kind of cliche and people just accept it without giving it much thought or doing enough exploring for themselves. Or they don’t really understand it. I am all of the above.

We are one. The rest is part of the ten thousand things. It may be a Zen thing or a Lao Tzu thing. Whatever. It is thought alone that keeps us from this oneness. This place of oneness is a place to visit but you don’t want to stay there. It is great, but can also be a trap. The wisdom and understanding that comes from the Enochian system is beyond this scope here.

It’s both a fascinating and difficult question. I think the difficulty of answering it comes from the fact that I don’t know why you assume we are all one. I think the answer to your question differs depending on your reasoning behind your idea that we are all one. For instance, it could be that you believe that we are all one because you have had a spiritual experience in which this became clear. In that case only you could answer your question because there is nobody but you who has had that particular spiritual experience. Therefore, you are the only one who could interpret it. On the other hand, it could also be that your conviction that we are all one stems from philosophical reasoning. There are a lot of philosophers who have argued in different ways that we are one. Examples are Spinoza and possibly Hegel and Plato. The problem is, if the latter is the case, that the answer to your question depends on what philosophical grounds you have based your assumption that we are all one. Spinoza, for instance, would say that there is no other reason for everything being one than that it’s just the way it is. Hegel, on the other hand, would roughly say that the we are all the expression of an underlying spirit that is trying transcend itself. Anyway, maybe I am over-analyzing things but all I am trying to say is, I think you should first try to figure out why you think we are all one and maybe then an answer will arise. I hope this helps.

Are we even All One?

I felt it once, clear as day, and that’s the only reason I, or anyone I would imagine, could really know. But here on earth it doesn’t quite work like that, we couldn’t be operating more separately if we tried. But that is the nature of polarity by which we are bound. We cannot have one without the other.
