Heart: Um... what's going on? I am beating so fast!
Brain: Uh-huh. Are you having an attack? Are you in love? Did you just do cardio? Are you having an anxiety attack? Did you just lift something heavy?
Soul: Oh Brain, why do you have to go there, huh? CHILL. Can't you feel she is just... excited?
Brain: I suppose excitement can generate an elevation of the heart beat.
Soul: You 'suppose?' Brain, I find it so odd that you don't actually FEEL Heart. In so many ways... you two are disconnected. I'm not judging. Just making an observation. I'm all about awareness y'know. Namaste.
Brain: Actually, I think awareness is MY department. And what do you mean by 'feel' her? I don't FEEL anything. I THINK.
Soul: Oh yeah... that ole' thing. Thinking is so... what's the word? Outdated.
Heart: Soul - Are you... having a grudge!? This isn't like you.
Brain: Not like him at all.
Soul: Yeah? Well, I SUPPOSE I do! When one has to carry the weight of a complete SOUL on their shoulders, the job can be pretty tiring.
Heart: Hey... grudges are kind of MY department.
Ego: Um, and possessiveness is MY department!
Brain: Ego is correct.
Ego: I always am.
Heart: Wait a second... Soul... are you... I mean are WE all... merging? Are we finally one?
Ego: I don't know about you all, but I am on a planet by myself here.
Heart: Not you Ego, no - you are like this separate being that is that petulant child we learn to co-exist with. No offense... I am referring to Brain and Soul and I. If Soul is feeling and thinking... it seems like merging to me.
Brain: If that is true, that would explain why you are excited Heart.
Soul: I THINK... And I FEEL that you are correct. Merging is painful!
Heart: And exciting!
Brain: And thought provoking!
Ego: Hey! Why are you leaving me out of this!?
Soul: We are not... it's just happening... there is no place for ego when one is whole.
