Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Nobody's perfect. ;-) Mark Twain included.

When I say that we are all One in Spirit, I mean that we're all part of a singularity, that singularity being everything...or the Unmanifest...or the Totality...or the Alpha and the Omega...or God...or the continuum...or whatever one wishes to call it. No word can adequately define it.

That doesn't mean we don't have individuality. We are as drops in an ocean. Each drop has individuality when you remove it AS a drop and set it aside. Then you can see it. When it's in the ocean, you can't see it, you just see the ocean, but it still exists. Its individuality occurs the moment it becomes aware of itself as apart from the rest of the ocean. Does its individuality vanish when it rejoins the ocean?

I don't know. Maybe so. Maybe not.
