The Soliloquy of We

Spirituality:

Visitors to the TED website or their Youtube channel some years ago may remember this presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor. The ostensible title of the presentation is "My Stroke of Insight", but what many of the people who (have) watched it probably have never noticed is that its true title is "Who are we?" If you watch the presentation closely you see that caption appear a few times in the presentation.

I, Igraine

Who Is Igraine?

The initial observer that was Igraine had died years ago, so who came alive as being her, but was not her?

Whose sense of I, present and past, became her? The original had died years ago, but someone became the I of her deceased person, someone whose sense of ego pertinence, feelings, memories, thoughts, concerns, was her, yet was not her?

Jill Bolte Taylor - My Favourite Guru (press-ganged, of course)

I guess I can't say much about this lady, a number of you may already know about her, except that I have press-ganged her into service as my number one guru.

Whenever I listen to her I found myself along trains of thought I haven't considered before, considering her choice of words and wondering why she chose those words in particular, those phrases.

I also find myself returning to verses in Hindu and Buddhist scriptures, which although I did not gloss over, whose significance I don't quite understand until I hear her repeat them in a different way.
