Separation – You Against me?

Issue #1

True self is non-self, the awareness that the self is made only of non-self elements. There’s no separation between self and other, and everything is interconnected. Once you are aware of that you are no longer caught in the idea that you are a separate entity. Thich Nhat Hanh

“Separation” – The Choice Some Make

My brain works a little different from most people. I’m good with that. Happy even. I see things others over look. Take today’s topic for example. Have you ever wondered why people kick-off when someone else doesn’t agree with their views? As you can imagine I do a lot of research, so I come across this all the time. Mostly on social media, but even healthy debates can turn nasty quite quickly.

It comes down to separation – The you against me mentality

Of course this isn’t where it starts, it’s where it ends. One side disagreeing with the other to a point where friendship can no longer be an option. You see it throughout history from the so-called birth of brainwashing, to religion, and even in sports.

So if separation is the result, whats the cause?

It’s as simple as just disagreeing with another. Which implies: Subject “A” has an emotional contention with either subject “B” and/or the content. Which brings us to – judgement. And what comes before judgement… Justification of views and/or choices.

Justification = judgement = Separation.

If subject “A” chose one way and subject “B” chose the opposite. And then both claimed their path were the best, they would have to justify their thoughts and actions.

As we know, for some people who are emotionally connected to their beliefs, this can cause a problem.

I have to admit, I hate it when people attack my views. I used to find myself justifying my reasoning all the time. These days, not so much. After all, it’s not there fault they’re wrong đŸ˜‰
