i think there is nothing delusional or wrong about being an individual and existing to create your own life and experience. that is what life is all about.

Ive noticed this fear, much like in spring a flower is open by day and closes to autumn cold at night... still I water and wait for summer, then the Narcisis becomes the difficulty... I suppose it egotistical to expect them to remain open, but tending such uniquness has its own reward including the sweat as the watering can always runs empty.

Individuality seems fundamental to existence and survival. Given that factor it should not be ignored but rather consideration should be given to its fundamental purpose.

One way of looking at it is that as humans we exists as in the sense of a pupal stage.

Depends on ones progress... hard to discern sometimes where someone is at, at other times like being in a horn factory.

Some could be the egg not yet hatched, some cound be the nymph still deep beneath the murky surface, some right at waters edge between worlds, some right after the edge on the surface in the new world, some climbing further up, some just cresting the blossom, some sitting on top of the lotus marveling at their irridescent wings mistaking themselves a butterfly, some recall the bite of the dragon and zoom off... settling where ever they like a master of that entire domain soaring in freedom. Of course attachment occurs at all stages... when in contact with the very ground of being could be grasped by fish or bird of appetite or even entranced thinking they are something they are not at the reflection of rays on their new wings drying... until they finally detach from the entire chain of contact in realization they were a mighty dragonfly... then further... a drop of dew hanging from a leaf, the very croak of a frog, the splash of a fish eating his or her old form.

Yet somehow people fear such a state of infinite being...
