Loving Oneness Now
God is all Mind/Consciousness and His Mind/Consciousness contains All-That-Is within Itself. The Reality of God's Mind-as-such, including His Consciousness of it, is a Mind-Singularity or Absolute Oneness. God's Own Content of His Mind-as-Such/Consciousness is also Real. For convenience we can define the Contents of God's Real Mind-as-Such/Consciousness as His Knowledge.
I'm sorry that I have to use these abstract terms, but it may help to clarify matters if I explain that you are using God-Consciousness every moment as you read this. There is no other Consciousness! Sure, we can decide to limit our Consciousness, but it is still God-Consciousness. We all utilize God-Consciousness and, because we have Free Will, we can fill our bit of that Mind/Consciousness with any ideas, thoughts, memories, limitations and data that we like, just as (by analogy) we can fill our cup with coffee, tea, water or any other liquid or granulated solid, including polluted stuff. Do not equate the Container (Mind-Consciousness) with what (thoughts, etc.,) It contains!
As a review, remember (from the previous entry) that Mind-as-Such/Consciousness is the container of thoughts, ideas, beliefs, drives and emotions--which are changeable, just as (by another analogy) a Computer is the container of software programs and the data you have entered--which are changeable--and that software and data are not the basic computer itself. So do not confuse the unique Singularity of Mind/Consciousness with the multiplicity of the varied content it contains in the form of thoughts, beliefs, ideas, drives, emotions, feelings, etc., all of which we "pour" into it.
Also, All-That-Is (which is contained IN Mind/Consciousness) is not only everywhere all around you, but you and everything that you are, including your body, is included in that All-That-Is.
All-That-Is, however, does NOT include Mind-as-Such/Consciousness; rather, Mind-as-Such/Consciousness contains All-That-Is
The Singularity of God, God's Oneness (Mind-as-Such/Consciousness containing All-That-Is), must be so from every point of view of Knowledge, including philosophy and science. If there was anything outside God we would logically have two Gods, because the second God would be necessary to contain what was outside the first God. Then logic would demand a third "Higher God" to contain these two "lower" Gods! In set theory this could lead to an infinite Hierarchy of Gods.
However, there is no need to appeal only to logical or philosophical arguments here because every Ascended Master I know has confirmed the Truth of God's Absolute Oneness.

THINK ON THIS:
God created every Mind by communicating His Mind to it, thus establishing it forever as a channel for the reception of His Mind and Will. Since only beings of a like order can truly communicate, His creations naturally communicate with Him and like Him. This communication is perfectly abstract, since its quality is universal in application and not subject to any judgment, any exception or any alteration. God created you by this and for this. The Mind can distort its function, but it cannot endow itself with functions it was not given. That is why the Mind cannot totally lose the ability to communicate, even though it may refuse to utilize it on behalf of being. (ACIM Text-#63/70-4.VII.3:7-12)
