Human unity and other states of oneness are mentioned frequently and sometimes expressed with mantric eloquence by writers on spirituality, religion, and philosophy. Oneness has also been well-stated by people in other fields such as sports, art, science, literature, and politics. In one sense, human unity exists naturally, but we deny and suppress this reality, deluded by our seeming separateness. Sharing mantric, written expressions on unity, we will explore and experience different levels of oneness and find our own expressions of it.
