    the impossible

    That people can see that they are inter-connected, can work together, live harmoniously. Is that so hard? Well apparently so given humans’ track record. So I’ll add in a big spoonful of hope. Humans are good at that too.

    More gets done, more gets taught, more gets shared; less push back, less excuses, less people get left behind. We also means more communication, more compromising and less “that’s not my job” or “do we have to do that”. I try the we, but the whole group needs to buy in. Less passive aggressiveness and less blame game. I would love more we, but there are too many I out there, so I end up going it alone and ask for validation so they are still in the loop. I end up pushing through the discouragement and criticism just to be be praised (or taken for granted) later or they getting mad, because they think they have to put in the same effort. Unfortunately, I am pushed to do more I, hoping they appreciate it later, just for them to claim the credit and publicly say it was we.

    When focus shifted from me to we, anything seems possible. Together world will be a better place.

    When there is a we instead of me anything is possible. Team work makes things easier and more obtainable. When it is just me it seems there are limitations, when you share your feelings, ideas, and dreams things are limitless.

    I have actually been thinking about this a lot today. With my work, I sometimes get into perfectionist or micromanaging mode. I think I have to do everything and watch over everyone and make sure it gets done. I really need to work delegating and allowing others to take ownership of joint ventures. This would really reduce my stress and also occassional tension with co-workers. It may help me appreciate my job and co-workers more.

    We can heal together by sticking together and creating a sort of environment where we can all feel safe together. I know I am to afraid to ask for help or therapy, and I tend to bottle things so I do not have to put all the weight on another person’s shoulders, so I feel like creating and environment for everyone to support each other and feel comfortable, would be a great/beneficial option.

    We can heal from trauma together by volunteering together to meet the needs of our community. When we come together and truly open our hearts and listen, our communities and families will heal *together*.

    A beautiful world where people suffer less, where joy and happiness resides naturally out of feeling connected and where we are looking after each other, animals, plants and nature as a whole in a respectful and loving way. An inner process which is work in progress present in all who share here. So many beautiful replies! So grateful for your being here, helping me and all in this shift.

    Perhaps not one “I” to a crowd of “I’s”. Perhaps from one “I” to one consciousness. What is possible? Nothing and everything!

    Not feeling like the world is on my shoulders. Feeling into connectedness, giving others the opportunity to be helpful, building trust.

    Community action brings a feeling of connection, love and accomplishment to lifting any troubles and making things a lot better for all beings in this world. Including giving myself a feeling of love instead of fear.

    This is really tough for people with extreme level of ego,sometimes having ego is really necessary and sometimes it can just take us down, when we start saying we ,us instead of using I, me and myself it really brings things to a better place. It makes us a better person ,it helps us understand ourselves and we can get to know people better there is communication involved which is very necessary. We get to see another version of us when we are around people and when we’re working with them we get to know about ourselves and also them ,so we just need to know what is right for us.
    Thank you for reading this 😊

    My husband and I are volunteer drivers for Meals on Wheels. Every week as we drive from home to home, I take a sealed prepared hot meal with dessert and milk out and put it in a bag, take it up to the door and had it to a recipient. And every week I am astounded by the number of people who have worked to make this happen so that each of these people can have food for each day. This is just one example of what is possible when we shift a focus from me to we.

    With like-minded people…..everything & anything {smile}.
    With people that are on different wavelengths, etc…..hoping for the opportunity/opportunities to learn about others experiences of life (that) can grow my experience of life forward (in regards to) accepting where others are- even if we don’t agree. Really being able to agree to disagree, free of negativity {smile}.

    Everything seems possible…you may seem to think that there is no way I can do this but you have your partner or friends or family near and you all can do anything you put your mind to. Having that support is such an important thing its almost like we forget it.

    A lot more! I’m a manager of others and our tiny team can feel overwhelmed. If we (the team) think of the larger we (the large agency we work in) that too could overwhelm unless we think of them as part of our “we can do this together” team.

    At home the same thing–feeling like something big is only mine to do or worry about vs talking with my husband and making it a shared effort.

    On the community scale and planetary scale we all need the we to survive and thrive.

    Survival is possible. Out of necessity and good luck, I have been a part of groups of friends that have helped me in so many ways. I am grateful for their support. I think of each of them often and remember the help that I received.

    With others,anything can be done. I love the ‘we’-IF I have had my alone time- because then I see other ways of doing things, other opinions and ways of thinking. There is tremendous power in the ‘we’.

    Me is object. We is subject. Me is singular. We is plural. Me is e-g-o. It Edges-God-Out. We is communal it accents relationship. May we all be empowered by that distinction. I think I will send today’s question to my senators!

    Then I imagine we are all in the same boat, and that we can navigate to light together.

    I think we actually see reality … that nothing happens without the “we”… but when I shift from self-interest to the common good, that’s when true community happens.

    All things seem possible! from small tasks like washing a sink of dishes to barn raising (I admit I’ve never tried it😉) I’ve washed a lot of dishes with my younger brother and we’d sing through the task.
