My spirit teacher tells me that we are whom we are,
intentionally or otherwise, and that we each share
with the world we live in and are a part of
the essence of our life.
A rose is a rose even when it has been planted
among vegetables, and a sheep grazing with cattle
is still a sheep.
But, He tells me, a rose growing among vegetables
has an opportunity to become aware of being
different from her or his neighbours, as does
a single sheep among cattle, in a way
that would not have been possible if they each
had been surrounded only by their own kind.
Is this about individuality?
In what way?
Awareness of our uniqueness.
Yes and no.
Please explain why awareness of being different
from those around us is not about uniqueness.
Each of the cattle and vegetable plants
are also unique in some way.
But, not nearly to the extent that a different
animal or plant would feel.
Were we talking about feeling unique
or being unique?
How is one possible without the other?
Awareness or lack of.
How can awareness change reality?
Awareness is reality.
