When I write, I have a tendency to drop into "we" syndrome where everything is us and our and we. Why? Is it because this way of addressing others has been used for centuries by many cultures? There is the 'royal we' and editorial we and the list goes on. We is inclusive rather than exclusive. It creates an energy of 'we're all in this together.' So, perhaps it comes from that universal connection wherein we are all part of a greater whole. Or maybe it derives from knowing that I am a compilation of cells that create the form that appears as me. Or, how about realizing that the form is the shell housing our subtle energies that came together from consciousness and matter? We have these identities or roles that we seem to want to attach to, and even though they serve a purpose for interacting in the world of form, can they not become illusion ... or delusion? Do we sometimes forget that everything is part of everything else and separation is the illusion? By focusing upon I and me and mine - when we totally buy into this concept of isolation - do we lose sight of how everything we do or say or be impacts all those around us? Not only other humans but all life. One of my favorite movies is What the BLEEP Do We Know? I've watched it several times and think it's an incredible - and FUN - reminder of Unity.
