Our sense of a “we” is born from these earliest ways in which we “feel felt” within the mind of our caregivers. Seeing the connections between the mind, the embodied brain, and our relationships lets us come to view the self as a plural verb rather than a singular noun. Being open to one’s own inner life with kindness, connecting to another person, being a part of a group, being a member of a larger community, and having a sense of meaning that emerges from interconnections with a larger whole, each form the foundation for a sense of “we” that is at the core of what can be called a spiritual life. … A compassionate membership within a larger interconnected whole becomes a way of being in the world.
– Dr. Dan Siegel
