“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Im not the only one 231

Im not the only one

So these words are specific, "Im not the only one." At first glance, they might not seem much, however I ask you to look at these words with me: "I'm not the only one," and join me in asking ourselves have I really lived these words and the realization/truth that they are? In my life in totality, I haven't because I have for the most part only considered ME, and my life, and what mattered to me. I wasn't considering other people, and their lives. Today there was one such instance that I would like to draw upon within redefining and changing me, and my behavior and how I relate to others, and this world.

I won't go into the details, like dates, facts and names, about this event, but the principles and nature of the event is important. I was reacting to a specific person, and it was a rather unusual and peculiar reaction. So I was working at understanding what is going on here, until I came to the point that I am not the only one, and so within that there is an awesome point. That I am equal with other people, that there are people just like me, and I can be wrong, they can be wrong, I can learn from them and they can learn from me. I am not alone. I am not the only one.

So within the statement, "I am the only one" is specialness, uniqueness, and superiority. The denial of this statement, I am not the only one, is where not only Humility is found, but also the truth. And what is knowledge without application? So this is where the specifics/detail of me, and my behavior matter.

First of all I notice within living Im not the only one, things become easier, I can relax. This means I have been holding tension. I can be more gentle. I can listen more. I can take my time speaking. I can wait, and be patient. I know creation of rather large things is possible. There is no more rush or tension. I can enjoy myself with other people. I am not the only one.
