“There is the possibility in every human life when for an instant the illusion of existing as 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 . . .”

There is no greater mystery than this: that we keep seeking reality, though in fact we are reality. — Ramana Maharshi
From Jerry Katz, creator of Nonduality.com:
“I hope everyone in Nonduality Land is aware of One The Magazine. As a new subscriber I see that you’ve created a beautiful container for the diversity of nondual teachings, a crystal vase holding many wildly different flowers, each sipping the same water (Jan Barendrecht’s metaphor). You’re clearly upholding the mission to, “Celebrate our true nature as one.” A section on News is particularly uncommon and important toward disseminating these teachings. There’s no single “center” in the world of nonduality, nor should there be, but it looks like your publication will come close to being it!” — Jerry Katz

by Eckhart Tolle
The story of Eckhart Tolle’s awakening is a profound example of the power of direct self-inquiry. The innocent curiosity to directly investigate what we mean when we say “I” has the power to transform a life from depression and confusion to complete liberation, with unknown and sometimes far-reaching reverberations.
by Yolande Duran-Serrano and Laurence Vidal
On a summer’s day in 2003, Yolande Duran-Serrano was going about her normal daily activities in her apartment, thinking the usual mundane thoughts, when suddenly she was struck by a silence in her mind. “How is it that I’ve never noticed this before?” she wondered. In the blink of an eye her thoughts moved to the background of awareness, while the ineffable silence moved to the foreground. There, it quickly began to establish itself as the ground of peace that would soon take over her life.

Jerry Katz is known around the world as one of the founders of the global nonduality community. In 1997, he established one of the first websites dedicated to the dissemination of nondual wisdom. At the age of two, Jerry had his first conscious experience of awareness aware of itself. Here he shares a few facets of his own spiritual unfolding and pearls of wisdom gleaned along the way.
by Igor Kufayev
“When Silence speaks, it tells the story of Creation. While some stories are more profound, the story of a human body embodies all other stories in its Heart . . .” Here Igor Kufayev, known for his in-depth understanding in the field of science and nonduality, weaves diverse strands of existence into an exquisite illustration of the One Vibrant Self, as manifest in the human body.
by Pamela Wilson
The typical human experience can be characterized by a feeling of not being quite comfortable in one’s skin, followed by a nagging suspicion that something is lacking in oneself or in life. Often, there is an underlying sense of limitation and frustration that drives a search to “find oneself.” This was the case for Pamela Wilson until someone pointed her directly to the formless intelligence that is our natural being . . . and she let go to that.
by Scott Kiloby
For most who experience an awakening to their true nature, the dawning of nondual realization is characterized by an all-consuming love that cannot be denied. For Scott Kiloby, this profound love transformed his relationship to himself, to addiction, to his partner, and to the trajectory of his life, which he now lives in service to Love.
by Jessica Rzeszewski
Awakening to nondual awareness can happen in the most unexpected circumstances: while waiting at a bus stop (Suzanne Segal), or watching a cockroach crawl across the floor (Byron Katie), or even while absorbed in a science fiction movie. Such was the case for Jessica Rzeszewski of Oahu, when the unified field of consciousness revealed itself innocently and without warning while watching James Cameron’s, Avatar.
by Sahaja Jaeger
For some, awakening to the Absolute has brought with it unexpected and incapacitating consequences to the physical form. In this article, Sahaja Jaegar shares her story as an “offering of support and encouragement for embracing the unknown, for finding greater peace by staying true to what was revealed, and in a very human sense, for knowing that you are not alone.”
by Barbara Shor, DVM
On February 24, 2010, SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed by her beloved giant orca, Tilikum, who had been kept in captivity for nearly 30 years. In this article Barbara Shor, an animal communicator known for her telepathic communication with whales and elephants, shares the subsequent communication that occurred between herself, Tilikum, and Dawn after the “accident.” It is the hope that this article, along with the recently released documentary, Blackfish, will raise awareness to the cruel practices of SeaWorld and other such operations, illustrating the consequences of our greed, and even our love, which can blind us to the suffering we inflict by keeping animals in captivity.
