“Comparison must be an ego device for love makes none,” Devorah said, smiling out over the multitude. “Specialness always makes comparisons. Pursuit of specialness is always at the cost of peace and love. Who can diminish and cut down another who is really a part of himSelf, use her as a gauge of littleness and be released from limits? Specialness is the idea of sin made flesh. Its purpose is to deny us ourSelves and bind us to the littleness of the ego.
“What could you see instead? Without specialness, without elevating ourselves and our illusory needs at the expense of everyone and everything else, you would see the shining radiance of all that is. And all the world you made, and all your specialness, and all the sins you held in its defense against yourSelf will vanish, and your mind will accept the truth about yourSelf.
“Beloveds, you have come far along the way of truth; too far to falter now. Just one more step and every vestige of the fear of God will melt away in love. Accept Its plan for salvation instead of yours. The ego’s death is not your death. Release specialness, comparisons, judgment, fear, hate and blame. Release the illusion of who and what you are and accept yourSelf as God created you.”
