Celebrating people where they are as if they were all that any one of us could be is a very effective and loving way to consider others.
In America, in particular, we celebrate celebrity with a passion. If we were to actually sit down and talk with one of those holy icons, I think that a majority would feel less than, when equal to would be the most appropriate comparison, if we compare at all, which is a given in the human nature of our ego-affected lives.
I ran across a great quote by Wayne Dyer that helps here:
“Release your need to feel superior by seeing the unfolding of Spirit in everyone. Don’t assess others on the basis of their appearance, achievements, and possessions. It’s an old saw, but nonetheless true: We are all equal in the eyes of God.”
Now take the word superior and interchange it with the word, inferior, and read it again.
Being more than, less than, better than, worse than, winning, losing, success and failure are all temporary illusions influenced by temporary situations and circumstances–and most of it is severely prejudiced by our own ego. As we are able to see the Spirit unfolding in each other and in ourselves, we are all on the same journey with individual paths, and every path is good and perfect.
Seeing The Greatness Or The Unfolding Spirit Is Exactly The Same As Loving.
