Even if there has been a strong resonance with the concept All is One, it may be difficult ti include all as Oneness manifest so that the process can be completed. For example it may be difficult for some to regard the Masons as Oneness manifest:) but until they were included the end of feeling disconnected would not be consolidated.

It was Nisargadatta who said "Knowing you are nothing is wisdom, knowing you are everything is Love"
According to that you are the Masons and the Masons are you:)

Very nice thought from Nisargadatta.
Here's another version of the same idea, also worth repeating.

Rabbi Simcha Bunem Bonhart of Peshischa (Przysucha, in Poland)
(1765–1827)
His practice or mantra involved 2 sayings, keeping 1 in each "pocket" (literal and mental):

V’anokhi afar v’efer”—“I am but dust and ashes”
AND
Bishvili nivra ha-olam—“for my sake the world was created”

Quote:
...best of all is to experience both at the same time: the radical humility of “dust and ashes,” and the acceptance and love of self of “the world was created for my sake.”
