Oneness is the goal. To see yourself, and feel yourself as at one with the "All" is to begin to understand the connection to God (Allness) we all share, however you know God to be.
God is the teapot, tangerine, blade of grass, rusting can on the side of the road, homeless family picking through the trash for food. All is all and we are part of that all. Like it, accept it, understand it, or not.
God is light and dark, good and bad, love and hatred. It is in these and other qualities of God that we have the choice to express, which allows us to know ourselves inside the full spectrum of the human as an "expression of God" paradigm on this world.
We choose. Some ancient texts give us advice on which way to choose. IE Do unto others. Teach a man to fish... You are as I am... Judge not lest... What you do unto the least....and so forth. Choices amidst the All That Is. Choices that can evolve or devolve.
However we choose, we are one. With everything. Nothing is left out and no one gets left behind. - blessings - chrism
