I had to Reblog this post because it speaks to my belief that we are all one, and not separate entities. This quote from Lulu Miller, the co-host of Invisibilia @NPRinvisibilia, really resonated with me – “Whether you want to or not, all day long, you are engaged in a kind of synchronized dance with the people you come into contact with”.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
When Ramana Maharshi said, “There are no others,” he was expressing the essence of nonduality. Today scientists are exploring the boundaries between Self and Others and unsurprisingly, they are finding the all wondrous ways in which we are not separate.
This interconnectedness was explored recently in an episode of NPR’s Invisibilia. The show looked at the many ways in which our lives — and our very being — are entangled, like two atoms separated by a large distance, but still intimately affected by the other.
One way in which we are connected with others is the way we act and feel. Many people walk around thinking that their actions and emotions arise entirely from within — from somewhere in the brain, caused by a series of physiological events. But the truth is we are like giant radio receivers, picking up the signals put out by others and imitating them.
