We may form part of a whole, but we are separated in that whole from the 3d perspective, at times I could easily say thank god for that.
Rape is unfortunately a real thing. It's a bit like masturbation I suppose, since they both involve sexual release. However rape involves a victim.
If you want to understand what rape is from a oneness perspective just visualize being in both positions.
You're the victim, it's painful, you're humiliated in the worst way possible, you're the rapist getting sick satisfaction from this conquest. Imagine both at the same time and see how it feels

So for this reason I do not believe in the "oneness" principle...

I'm not saying that meditation or positive thinking is as bad as booze and drugs, but the need to perform such exercises is clear evidence that one does not feel emotionally whole. So, the attempt at trying to feel a 'oneness' with all things is actually an attempt to fill what is missing in one's psychological make-up.

If you believe in Energy - - that all is Energy - - it is beneficial to keep thought (which is creative energy) in the positive.
So - - be positive - - be ONE with the energy. It really has nothing to do with emotions or anything missing in your life.
