51 – We Are All Special People
Within each of our lives there are number of people whom we view as being special to us. We love these people, and they occupy a special place in our hearts, so it doesn’t seem unusual that we should have a tendency to lavish our affections on them. This is how our ego sees life, because it has been educated by the ideas and concepts that are valued within social consciousness. The reality though, is that the concept of specialness is a judgment made by comparing one person who we hold to be special, against the general public, who are found to be wanting in some regard, otherwise they too would be special. In most cases, we elevate the feelings we have for one person, above those we have for others, and in so doing, we also distance ourselves energetically from other people. Judgments we make about people always find them wanting in some manner, because judgment, just like the idea of competition, works to separate and strengthen the idea of differences, rather than focusing on similarities and unification. The truth is that all souls are spiritual in their source of origin, and are simply inhabiting a physical body during this incarnation. The belief that all souls were created all the same time, by the same source, for the same reason, would indicate that none are more special than any other. Or another way to look at this idea would be that, if the soul “could” be special, then all souls must be special, and equal in every respect.
The important points to remember in this chapter are that, specialness is an idea held within social consciousness, which like so many other ideas people share, is emotional in nature. The energetically higher one ascends within creation, the more love works to unify all things, simply because you are headed back to the single source of all life, which is God.
