After some dwelling with your question I like to share an experience I had 33 years or so go. I was not in spirituality, just working as a teacher in a hospital to train nurses.
One day I was in front of the group of students. (We used to arrange the students in U form.) So I stood or sat there and the students were doing some task and it was quiet and I looked at every student beginning at my left hand side and with every single one of them a thought came up: a speciality of each of them, and with that a total seeing of their so to say ‘value’. No one was left out!
They all had their contribution to make in the group. I just never forgot it. So, it must have been an uplifting experience. A taste of what is real in us. A taste of accepting every person for what they are. A taste of togetherness.
When it came up I thought that it was not ‘big’ but after some time it came to mind that oneness is just that. These small everyday things where we see that every one is included, no one is left out.
