when are we to realize that the "Self" is connected to everyone and everything?
why must the context of self improvement be the individual hence egotistical context?
What if I sight that in order for "ME" to improve, it takes my other connections (other selves) to also encourage and support and communion in the same common endeavors?
That is the operation of the universe (from my perspective)...something must engage with something else...and the more quantity, the more powerful.
I could be a hermit/monk and live a "perfect" lifestyle but what good is that separatism/detachment?
Xtians sight up Jesus but do not live up to his legacy...but they sure bow down to him. so what?
We have always had those who separate from society and they have books and chapters and statues and religions named after them. But I believe in group-communion-unity. Sure, I may be out of place with my overbearing and aggressive input but all I ask for is refutal or acknowledgment.
Anything is better than no response/edification at all.
