Your post is so interesting Scott.
I also am a Tibetan Buddhist.
I have always wanted that feeling with oneness in nature. One day my guru explained my transcendental experience to me, which no other teacher had, and it rather put me on a high. I was out in my garden getting ready to weed, and I loved everything so much that I had a hard time desiring to even kill a weed by pulling it. And then I told myself to snap out of it. That may have been the wrong thing to do. But I don't know if you could call it oneness with nature, just a deep love for it.
I haven't used meditation enough to explore like you have. I wouldn't know how to explore other levels. Sometimes I have used meditation to get answers to things that are bothering me, and that is helpful.
