“Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, Love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves.” — Nisargadatta Maharaj
“ONE the Magazine continues to develop as a stunning vehicle celebrating the many ways the spirit and expression of nonduality show up.”
There is the possibility in every human life when for an instant the illusion of existing as a separate entity simply vanishes. A veil is lifted and somehow, miraculously, all of life is experienced as one seamless unified reality, and you recognize without a doubt that the truth of who you are is this one reality. Never again can you truly deny that not only are you intimately connected with every human heart and with all of life, at the core you are the fabric of life itself.
— Shanti Einolander, founder/editor of ONE
by David Newman (Durga Das)
Sacred chant artist David Newman (Durga Das) has a unique story of awakening. In this heartfelt personal account, the path of bhakti, or devotion to the Divine in form, and the way of direct self-inquiry into one’s true nature as not separate from the Divine, collide in a dramatic integration of these two seemingly disparate yet mutually dependent paths.
In June, 2014, Nathan Gill, a clear voice in the global nonduality community, left this life at a time of his own choosing. He had been ill for some time and felt there was no hope of recovery. In tribute to Nathan’s life and his beautiful offering to the world, ONE shares his awakening story, in his own words, from the depths of his clarity.
by Jeannie McGillivray
Jeannie McGillivray’s story illustrates what was true for many of us, that the doorway to a lasting shift from ego-centered identification to knowing oneself as divine undivided awareness was precipitated by a “dark night of the soul.” In her case, triggered by what seemed at the time to be a massive disaster in life, the ultimate nightmare, the worst thing that could ever have happened to her particular being.
by Rodney Stevens
When Rodney Stevens was 12 years old, he awoke one morning and saw his home town of Pendleton, South Carolina, bathed in a light of momentous clarity. He felt himself brimming with the very essence of life. Years later, as an adult and after many years of searching, that morning long ago led to the ultimate discovery of his ever-present natural state—undifferentiated awareness.

by Dan Kelso
Dan’s story is one of absolute earnestness and relentless inquiry into truth. As the years and decades of Dan’s life rolled by, and relationships and jobs came and went, he remained certain that nothing else was more important than contact with what he was glimpsing to be “Reality.” One day, while sitting in his car waiting for his daughter’s volleyball match, the grace of surrender opened the door to the unthinkable simplicity of what is.
At what point do we, as stewards of this earth, stop selling out the sacred gems of our unique biosphere in the interest of greed and dirty energy fuels? This article turns the focus to one of our animal brethren, the spirit bears of British Columbia, who inhabit The Great Bear Rainforest. After many years of passionate effort, the need remains urgent to protect one of our planet’s most beautifully pristine and delicate ecosystems.
