What is the “true” church?

Is there “one true church,” and if so, who or what is it?

The “true” church I perceive to be the “Body of Christ,” the One which holds us all, that gathers us together in a single body of communion, of fellowship, of Love.

This One gathers us together as a hen gathers her chicks, helping us to realize our Oneness, our singular Humanity, our union as One Life on this spaceship Earth, and in this One Cosmos, which seems to have been made from One Singularity that burst forth in One Big Bang, producing One unified quantum field from which all matter and energy arise, this infinite vibration which sings the “One Song” of the uni-verse.

You are That. We are That. That is what we are in our deepest being. And although this mortal frame will pass, what we are in our foundation, our essence, our ultimate reality can never pass. It is from Alpha to Omega, from the beginning to the never-ending. It is a NeverEnding Story, which we are telling our Self.

We are the Cosmos becoming aware of its Self, and waking up to the forgotten knowledge and identity that it is this Cosmic Self, manifesting in a multiplicity of diverse, unique, and beautiful beings all over this planet.
We are “Adam,” the Hebrew adamah meaning “ground” or “earth,” and we are “Eve,” the Hebrew chawah/chayah meaning “to breathe” or “to live.”
We are the Life and Light of the Kosmos, as an ancient Jewish sage-mystic-prophet-healer-Christ once taught.

This is what we may fully realize in meditation and contemplation, mystical states of consciousness which unveil our minds, which lift the egoic veil from our consciousness so that we may know Consciousness itself. And it is God, it is Love, it is Reality, it is Truth, it is Light, it is Energy, it is Life, it is the One, the Singularity, the Kosmos, the Source of all things, the Father, the Dharmakaya, Allah, Brahman, the Godhead, the Ground of Being, the Great “I AM” YHWH (Yahweh), the One.

This One is the “true” church.
