There are many "I"s, but why am "I" this one and never the other "I"s?
When I wake up with different eyes, I real-ize, that "I" was only an illusion in my mind's eye.
- A poem by me.

I woke up last night, not just waking up but WOKE UP, and didn't really know who I was anymore and I examined my 'self' with eyes closed, objectively and my concept of self seemed foreign and even petty. It's rare that I get it, this was my 3rd time, but I hope to get more and don't find it frightening anymore. More on that in another topic when I get my thoughts together.

But the same concept of 'self' that I have, is the same and equal to all others no matter who or what.
"I am he as you are he as you are me. And we are all together." -The Beatles, (I Am The Walrus).

Goo Goo Gajoob! ;)
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.
Don't you see? It doesn't matter to me. Just let it be!
(written by a great poet after a dream... ME!)
