Life Satisfaction Boosted by a Sense of Oneness — Regardless of Religion, Study Finds
Those who believed in oneness were more satisfied with life, the study suggested. The data also revealed women were significantly more likely to believe in oneness than men. Those on middle-to-high incomes had a higher chance of relating to the principle than the poorest and richest. The belief also appeared to grow with age, before dropping off between the ages of 80 and 89. Muslims, on average, had the highest mean value of oneness beliefs, followed by Christians who don’t identify as Protestant or Catholic. This was followed by Buddhism, Hindu, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, other non-Christian, and finally atheists.
