Out of curiosity..thank you.
I know you were not directing this question to me but I would like to answer.
You might think that experiencing oneness must make you feel powerfull.... And it is true you do feel power but not in the sence of manipulation....
Its like total power of peace, love, harmony. You feel that everything that is is as it should be. The good and the bad stuff, melts into single union of harmony.
You feel every element but it extends not to the present but combines present past and future to become one moment.
Its dificukt to describe in words of course, but thats my best attempt.
All the best,

For me its like my awareness drops down from my head, through the throat, down into Infinity where there no longer is a me as awareness. There is just Oneness. I am no longer there, there is no me, and everything is One thing. Instead of me walking through Oneness, its like me walking through myself. Or better yet, instead of me being in a body, the body is in me, and I am outside of it and yet nowhere to be found.
There is a smaller One with everything connected feeling that many people claim when in nature, or watching a movie, etc. But that still implies an I, that is lost in the object. What I am referring to, is that there is no I anywhere to be found, it sort of merges with reality without needing nature, a movie, or anything else to be wrapped up in.

If you get oneness then you wind up being an outcast or don't easily fit into society. Do you sure you really want that?

The one thing is 'the seer and the seen'.
As you sit there right now looking at this screen, there is what is 'seen' (the pc monitor and peripheral vision) and there is what is 'seeing' the image. I know it seems like that is two things and that is where the duality originates, there is a mistake made when we separate this into 'me' and 'what is seen'.
Really there is just seeing but the human mind says 'I see'.
The observer (the seer) and the observed (the seen) are one process, one act of knowing. Nothing can appear to be seen without the seer being present.
Everything is made out of knowing.
This short video is beautiful, well worth 2 minutes of your time:
Are you the seer or the seen?
