Just a Thought—Individual#2

Again, how is it possible to be an Individual?  As we share this experience we often hear how “We want to understand how other people think” which is ourselves.  “How” others think is “how” we think—this is a shared activity.  Are we not sharing the same education, history, desires, sorrow etc.?...No, not on a superficial level where definition, division, knowledge and justification take place, but at the root consciousness.  Where we interpret and understand our environment in order to exist and function.  Why would “thought” and “consciousness” not be shared?...Because the unaware unconsciousness mind  will define itself as an Individual and keep its distance, and why?   Do many of us go into such a question to the end without falling back on our beliefs in defeat?  We must go to the end of the road to discover what’s there and not just rely on our belief of what’s there.  Yes, there are varying words to express a cultured past, yet the human experience retains a core which is the eternal root.  And everything has a single root which all things mythical and factual spring from.  If two individuals drink for the same well, do they both not taste water?  This is a shared experience, not an individual choice.   With our hands we dip into the same well, scoop the same water and quench the same thirst.  Sharing is not a distant thing; it is close, near, real, life and evolution.
