we are one

October 5, 2016

In describing my talking at the moment, I can’t describe this just as a thing in itself because I’m talking to you. So what I’m doing at the moment is not completely described unless your being here is described also.

So if that is necessary… if in other words in order to describe my behavior I have to describe your behavior and the behavior of the environment; it means that we’ve really got one system of behavior. That what I am involves what you are. I don’t know who I am unless I know who you are and you don’t know who you are unless you know who I am.

In other words, we are not separate.

We define each other, we’re all backs and fronts to each other. We and our environment, and all of us and each other are interdependent systems. We know who we are in terms of other people.

We all love together… and we are, I think, quite urgently in need of coming to feel that we are the eternal universe, each one of us.
