The idea that we are separate and alone is a trick the ego uses to make the mind seem more important. Oh, what great tragedies and triumphs we individuals play out in our lifetimes! This is the pretend part of life where we are like actors on a stage playing our various parts in ongoing dramas.
When we step back, we witness the drama more clearly and glimpse the machinery behind the show. As we plug into a peaceful state of being, we rise above it. Looking down, we see that all players - the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly, are actually one. You are me, and I am you, and the one doing the punching is actually hitting themselves.
So whether we feel hopeless, disconnected, or need a new kidney, the answer is connection. We must lower our defensive walls of "selfdom" to see others for who they really are. Recognize our link to everything and everyone on this planet and be of service to anyone we can help.
Get out of our heads and into our hearts.
I see you. I love you. I am you.
