I was reading about the onesness to all things and to understand our connection to God from STEVER,
HOWEVER, it would be appreciated if someone would come up with their (respected, oppionated) Manual of Entering The Sacred Silence.
You start by asking yourself questions.
To understand the connection to god, we must learn to understand ourself and our place and flow with nature. Basically what I'm saying is.. you
start simple... you draw what seem to be the most obvious observations about yourself and your reality and you expand those observations... taking
them deeper and deeper and so on.
Becoming aware of what is already there. We have this tendency to look at everything being external, and ourselves being isolated from from the
I'd say theres lots of places to start, but it comes down to what you want.. your perception.. its your path... start asking yourself questions and

I just spent 5 hours writing about how I percieve reality the other day.. I'd be glad to show it but this messageboard is screening the website or

this alone we assume there is no intelligence to them and that they are only capable of the smallest functions yet they know how to serve the interest
of the colony quite intelligently if you ask me.
You start with small observations, the easy ones that you are aware of... anaylse them.. and take it deeper..
Some advice.. but I think from your question alone you already know what it is you have to do.
