To live the lives we are here to live, we must let go, entirely, of comparing ourselves to others. When we compare ourselves to others, we block the unique gifts, creativity and expression that are ours to bring to the world.
There is a great misunderstanding about life in comparison. It says, ‘Life breathed something special into every other being, but it did not breathe something special into my own heart.’ To compare is to distrust God, to think ourselves separate from the stars and the moon and the rivers and the trees. It is to think ourselves left out in a world where nothing is ever left out.
The light of your own heart shines as brightly as all other heart-lights, but you must trust that this is the case. You must recognise your own divinity, spend time with your own soul, and listen to the path that is yours alone to walk.
To compare is to condemn ourselves to a life in which we feel half alive at best, since our life force flows fully only when we are in alignment with the truth that runs through our own veins.
My soul sister, my soul brother, let the time for comparison be over now, today. The world is made happy by you being you.

an inordinate amount of time
