"Many enlightened ones with whom I spent time over the years have had unique experiences of oneness but none of them have remained in this state. They have possibly turned on their egos again when it came to everyday reality. Many times, I had the feeling that it was from the ego state that they offered strategies, opinions and teachings. If you allow yourself to explore your statements with the questions posed by The Work, you would be instantly connected to the absolute divine. We can never be separate from it anyway, but whether this is in our awareness or not at the time we need to know it, makes a huge difference."
