When I do Mu in daily life it seems that the concentration on the word is keeping my awareness from opening up and being one with whatever I encounter. When I do What is This? it is much easier and natural to melt into whatever is before me. Is this my natural affinity to What is This? or am I doing something wrong?

You seem to be seeing "What is this" and "Mu" from being outside of your consciousness, that is why you can say you are becoming one or not. If it does not become your blood and flesh, then it is just like a quiz. As long as you can still judge whether you have become one or not, it is still only on the surface of your awareness.
