From Our Community:

The Torah uses the phrase ‘gathered unto his people’ in describing the death of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Aaron. I believe that is the destiny of all of us. I believe that there is a cosmic consciousness from which we are born, and to which we return when we die.

I believe that we are all part of the cosmic consciousness, even while we are alive; I sometimes sense it. If enough people believed this, perhaps there wouldn’t be so much heartlessness and hypocrisy in the world.
