Tools To Transcend Comparing Ourselves To Others

donnagatesAccording to Matthew Klein, medical seer and healer living in Los Angeles, “Seeking God outside yourself is like trying to lift a box while standing inside of it.”

Granted, the force of the Uni-verse is everywhere. It is in everything. But your personalized source of Uni-versal energy is found within. Go a little deeper, and you will discover an infinite I-Am presence in the heart.

Comparison is a poison that may create feelings of inadequacy, envy, anger, depression, loneliness, and despair. These feelings can cause disharmony in the cells of our body and as Dr. Bruce Lipton’s work demonstrates, even our DNA.

Each human being has been born into a unique situation, with a unique set of lessons, obstacles, and blessings.

Many meditation practices focus on bringing Uni-versal force into the body. But not enough practices teach how to expand the love and the divinity that you already possess.

As a child of the Uni-verse, you are automatically a vessel of light, love, joy, and infinite possibility.

When we get stuck in comparison, we forget our birthright.

The next time you meditate, call upon your own infinite and Uni-versal self.

Summon up the light of Light and Love that lives within each cell of your body. Choose foods that are healthy and full of nutrition – like fermented spirulina, coconut water kefir, and ocean vegetables – to increase your cellular energy and uplift your mood.

Before long, you will begin to cherish what you once judged. You will see yourself as precious. You will know that your worth far outweighs any object or accomplishment.

I believe that when we strengthen our body with superior nutrition and our mind and heart Uni-versal Love, we can share our talents and gifts with those around us – and that rippling effects the world.

    Hi Donna,

    First, I thank you for writing The Body Ecology Diet. I read it a few years ago and now pass on the information in bits to people I talk to about diet. It’s been truly transforming. I feel like the information you provided years ago becomes more and more mainstream everyday. Thank you for being a leader in a dietary movement.

    Second, I concur–once you discover who you are it leads to an understanding of exactly what you are doing and its effects. I experience the positive ripple effects returning in statements of gratitude and through people being inspired by the actions I do. Those are the tangible effects.

    Then there are those effects that are intangible/subtle that outweigh the tangible ones, the spiritual unseen effects that may never been experienced directly by the giver and also add to the overall change in the world.

    Knowing one’s Self is an act of self-compassion. Recognizing our own essence leads to recognizing the essence of all. Then, we enable ourselves to be of service.

    With compassion,
    David H. Breaux
