We Are Each made of many parts - We are each Plural
We each are a community of selves,
1) our past,
2) our present,
3) our future
in space & time:
1) our body, & physical feelings,
2) our desires, & emotional feelings, & "WANTS"s,
3) our mind, & thoughts, & questions, & "SHOULD"s
4) our spirit, & listening self, & self which is aware of our feelings and thoughts, & puts it all together, this is the highest self.
These selves all coexist, sometimes peacefully, usually not.
The more conflict, the less efficiency, the more suffering.
The overall goal is Happiness, for which we need to learn
who we are (our parts) and how they can get along (efficiency)
