'Oneness is an abstraction that presents itself as beyond dualism, but has within it a hidden duality. Dividing the cosmos into two categories or levels of reality is dualistic by nature. The ideology of Oneness (as opposed to the experience of it) creates an opposition with multiplicity, calling itself "higher" and more real.'
'But if unity is valued more than diversity, the inevitable result is the attempt to get to unity by negating or in some fashion lessening the value and importance of separation.'
'Separation is an illusion" are examples of identifying only with unity.'
'The experience of being a part of something larger (even the whole cosmos) is very different from declaring the whole more real than its parts.'
It's a pretty long article but I would be interested in peoples critiques, critisms etc.
