A need for personal comparison is an unhelpful human trait! Comparing yourself, your possessions and a self-imposed status against others is pointless. Each person has a distinct genetic code handed down through their ancestors that makes them look physically different from others – parental guidance, early learning and culture during childhood makes people think differently – after that personal experience shapes your beliefs and you arrive at your own type of wisdom which makes you an irreplaceable place of this world.
Deep within these codes live inbuilt survival mechanisms designed to gain food, find shelter and reproduce. Comparing yourself against others thousands of years ago was probably paramount, but there has always been someone who wanted to stray from that formulae and that is where we become a fascinating species.
Never doubt that you are a vital force here to experience, enjoy, love, create and adventure, but know that you have a purpose! That purpose does not necessary involve comparisons. Learning can involve comparisons; though if you feel you have gained enough self-assurance over the years do things your own way. Move beyond the testing competitions that weaken the journey of the young. If you are not happy with who you are or what you have make plans for improvement. Be magnificent in your personal pursuits – be proud of your achievements.
Comparisons sometime lead to an unconscious imitating of others leading you away from original thought. In the sphere of business it is great to share ideas or be up with public demands for technologies – transferring this competitive system to the rest of your life can have undesirable effects, especially if you pass it on to children. It’s true that creativity can thrive in adverse circumstances; the desire to win, defeat or get ahead of the completion can be quite potent – therefore remembering that true power is of the purist spiritual purpose will bring you back to the correct focus. Honour yourself!
