I’m not sure I’ve ever met a person who hasn’t done this at least 1 time in their life – compared them-self to someone else. It’s hard not to at times but we must remember that our ego is separate from our spirit. That comparing and contrasting is coming from our egos. Our souls are all connected – united in love. They know no comparison, jealousy or envy. What they do know is how to care, love, help, heal and lift others up.
So why do we let our egos take over? Why do we leave the volume up so loud when deep down we know it shouldn’t be that way? It’s because we’re human and unless taught this early on (which most of us are not), we don’t look at the world through our spiritual eyes. If we were then there would be no comparing – there would only be supporting.
If you take away anything from this post, I want it to be this: We are all on different paths. Your journey is not the same as mine. We aren’t going to walk the same speed or see the same sights. Don’t compare yourself to someone else, ever. Don’t get jealous of how they look, what they have or who they are. You are not them. They are not you. You are unique and wonderful and have your very own special gifts that only YOUR soul can offer those you encounter in this world. They have different gifts. Your gift is no better than their gift and their gift is no better than yours. There is no comparison. They are both amazing in their own ways. Crank that volume down on your ego – better yet, hit MUTE! Turn up the volume that speaks from your soul. Listen intently to what your spirit has to say and what it craves. When you are too busy pleasing your own spirit, you have no time to compare yourself to others.
