By recognizing everything you see, objects and events, as part of you, you will further expand this sense of all-inclusiveness and one-ness. This infinite growth of awareness will include not only the immediate persons in your surroundings, but also all experiences you encounter, and the vast concept of the Universe.
There is a power greater than you or I which orchestrates the workings of the Universe. But we, being part of this power, have a hand in ‘how’ we are experiencing and applying this force. This is why our mental attitude is so important. “It is not I who doeth the works,” Jesus said, “but the father that dwelleth within me.” And his most important statement: “I and the father are one”.
The creator has given us, his creations, all of his/its potentiality and power. But no individual reigns supreme, as we are all part of this one Universal Intelligence.
I hope this example helps you in understanding the connection from individual Soul to collective Consciousness.
