WE VS THEY

We are carefully taught. One of the first lessons a baby learns in life on this planet is his / her separateness from others, then from the mother. The “we-they” concept is re-enforced constantly as we grow and develop physically and socially:

Our felt need to “belong”
The need to be right, when there is a difference of opinion
The popularity of exclusivity i.e. fraternal/sorority organizations and other social clubs
The belief in racial segregation and “superiority”
Animosity/compitition between religious groups.
Gender discrimination in the work place
Regional/cultural/idealogical prejudice

This is only to name a few.

Interestingly enough, quantum physics teaches us everything is energy, and “it” is all connected!

I love the quote:

“For the mind that judges perceives itself as separate from the individual being judged, believing that by punishing another, it will escape punishment.”
A Course in Miracles Chapter 13

I invite you to give this some thought.
