We don't become part of something larger than ourselves, we are always part of something larger than ourselves, and the moments we become aware of that are special moments, typically aha moments, peak moments, love moments. An important love is how we are when realizing and appreciating our union or oneness with all that is. It may be only a momentary phenomenon particularly if awareness of our being part of something larger than ourselves is a new awareness, and it may be an ongoing love if we abide in awareness that we are part of something larger than ourselves. I think my first peak experiences were in looking into a star-filled sky and having an awareness of how big the unvierse is and my being part of something much larger than myself. From there I have moved to a much more frequent awareness of our being part of something much bigger and greater than ourselves, and it's an awareness that fills me with awe and love and what Barbara Frederickson calls positivity resonance.
