There is nothing individual about any of this—including you.

All that Is, is universally and harmoniously one. No thing can be considered distinct or apart from all the rest.

In truth, no thing exists. There is only That which Is, the ever-flowing stream of consciousness, complete with all of the illusions that appear within it, and you are That—not the illusions, but the consciousness in which all things are being dreamed.

We are consciousness, knowing itself, experiencing itself through the illusory objects of its own dreaming.
