If I see myself separate from you, different from you, or the same as you, then I am not seeing the true you. Therefore, I'm not seeing the true me. I am only seeing the illusion that is put in front of me that makes me feel separate, alone, misunderstood. When I see your uniqueness, I may see my uniqueness or that I am not special enough. There is a difference between the ego’s need to be special and your unique energy, since when it comes down to it we are all just Oneness. This is beyond the thinking mind that recognizes that we are the same age, we are the same height, we live similar lives, so we must be the same.
Do you claim your uniqueness? Do you look outside yourself to gauge who and what you are?
When you look outside yourself to make yourself feel special and unique you are engaged in the ego’s projections. You are looking to others to see yourself.
When you connect to who you truly are, you recognize the Wholeness of all that is around you and love flows within, and you recognize Oneness. You see flowing love in every blade of grass, in every little beetle, and love in the sky and the moon.
