Beauty is an idea

Emotional pain: sadness, worry… is an idea
Beauty is an idea
Success is an idea… Failure, accomplishment, becoming, love, ego… just someones ideas

How much of what we do, think and feel is due to our acceptance of someone elses ideas…
… is that Life? Living? … just following along?

Is there any idea, thought, decision, act, that is ours alone?

Is there an Individual? Should there be an Individual? How would we know Individually? How would we trust our own obsevations?
