To Prove Our Separateness

From Parker J. Palmer's "The Woodcarver" 

This is death and why we fear it--the loss of our boundaries and distinctiveness, the annihilation of self. Driven by this fear, we act over and against things to prove our separateness, and in the process our action becomes adversarial, fragmenting us and our world, destroying hidden wholeness.
