Oneness and multiplicity

The goal is not to eliminate multiplicity and scramble to replace it with oneness, but something a bit messier, more creative, more fertile, more earthy. A bit more risky, not as clean, white, solar, or safe.

When we become too literalized in our fantasies of unity and oneness—and also in those of multiplicity and separation—we lose touch with the mystery that these concepts can only point to, but never embody.

We can play in the mountain peaks of unity and oneness, and also in the rich, lush generative meadows of separation and multiplicity, without taking sides. Willing to fully participate in each, as equal expressions of the beloved.
