Yes. From a lower point of view, that of having a personal, fixed self,
apart from others, it is something we do. From a higher standpoint of not
being separate from anything else in life, it is *our living connections*
with others. And from yet a higher standpoint, *there are no others*, just
unity, and it is the content of our consciousness.

They are the exteriorizations of our conscousness. We bring about the
circumstances of our lives through selectively activating protions of
our storehouse of karma.

life by doing it. We interact with others, and both they and we are
changed. That change "lives" in the karmic link between them and us.

passing fancies of the corruptible personality.
