To We Or Not To We

Every bit of distress or joy comes down to your perception of separation or unity. Just about everything in culture promotes the idea of separation, so it can be difficult to recognize unity much less embrace it and believe it. You could say that culture is swayed in favor of distress because it promotes the idea of separation everywhere. This is especially convincing because it seems like individuality itself negates unity. How can you have a separate body, for example, and a separate will, and be in unity with everything? Well, you can because you are.

Individuality, and every form of experience, is possible because of unity. Unity is what allows the context within which you can have the experience of form. That form and that environment, and that individuality that explores that form and that environment, doesn't negate unity. The unity is what allows for the experience of all of that.

Thus, it's possible to be firmly in your individuality, expressing decisive focus and conviction while being a "we," at the same time. You are a "we," whether you acknowledge it or not, and this environment gives you the opportunity to deny that unity to the extreme. You may perceive yourself to be quite separate. In other words, you can choose not to "we." I would advise against it, but there it is.

The way things are now, the faster you "we," the better. That's because, in truth, I am we, and you are we, and we are we. That doesn't have to be a threatening thing because our "weity" doesn't deny our individuality. Instead, acknowledging the unity of us strengthens our individuality and promotes it.
