In our Western society, we are taught to believe in labels, to pursue prestige and perfection. As if our worth is based on these things. But the truth is, nobody is better than anyone else. We are collectively equal and our worth lies within.
If we were to take a group of people, put them in a room, strip them of their titles, and only allow them to ask one another questions about their life stories, we would see that we’re all just the same. And our fears and insecurities measuring up to one other would fall away. Because, in the end, we are incarnated souls each experiencing life in our own way. We don’t have to seek the ideal body to be accepted, or walk the traditional path that society lays out for us.
“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.” –Paul Coelho
There is no hierarchy, there is no human measurement of our value. It’s the soul shining through we are meant to see, the human connection that matters, and our dreams realized that count.
So next time you’re talking with someone who’s more “accomplished” than you, you’re about to enter a room full of movers and shakers, or you’re checking out that person who’s dressed to the nines, remember this: no one is better than you. We are all sparks of the divine sharing a cosmic journey…and “we are all just walking each other home.” (Ram Dass).
