How we learn who we are

Spirit tells me that we are as individual sparks of Life

Experiencing life.

 

We learn to know who we are and what we are by

Experiencing relationships with other sparks of Life,

Of intensities that may differ, in some way, or ways,

To our own.

 

They are, these other sparks, what and whom they have

Become, as are we.

 

The strengths and weaknesses of other sparks

Provide us with a means of knowing our own, by

Comparing ourselves with others.

 

This awareness is not meant to be used to judge

Others, nor ourselves. Differences exist and are

As a gift to everyone.

 

How would it be possible, He asks me, to know

Anything, if nothing or no-one differed, or seemed

Not to,, from anyone or anything else, in any way?

How could we grow? or be aware that we had, or

Had not?

 

Awareness of differences can serve to inspire each

Of us to become, not as any other, but all that we can,

And in this way, inspire others to do the same,

Not be the same.
