Jo, you couldn't have said this better:
there is something which they are a part of which is much bigger than themselves
Thats it . . .
and nothing IS perfect - that would be a fairytale . . .
Maureen, I do have to disagree here, I know what you mean by it but I have many times felt half a person, even if I were whole, I never saw it for myself, another always helped ME to see myself and THAT is what this is all about but this was your quote:
..but you are never half a person.
I will never be whole until I cross over and even then I have a lot of answering to do . . .
If I were whole, I would stop learning, growing.
I think it is pretentious to claim oneself to be whole. (happy, well-adjusted, self-assured, confident, independent, YES)
Its all perception . . . we all have our own perceptions.
