To be Special and Chosen


So many spiritual people have a desire to be “special” and a need to feel they are a “chosen one”.

Chosen to be whatever it might be, but most often chosen to be something more than anyone else, to be someone special.

Why is that? And what is that?

To me it’s just a lower ego desire. Something within me that isn’t happy and satisfied with just being who I am. A part of me that believes I am not good enough as I am, that I need to be “more” to be accepted and loved.

Why is it so hard to just love ourselves just the way we are and be happy with that? As I see it it is when we are able to accept all parts of ourselves – including the most “ugly” ones – that we find peace with ourselves. Peace and compassion which enables us to love ourselves just the way we are. Seeing and accepting that we are already special just the way we are. All of us.
When we get to that point we will not have to put any effort in finding that specialness outside of ourselves, but on the inside which also empowers us as individuals, because we don’t have to rely on someone else outside of us. It is all inside of us.

The part of being “a chosen one” is also interesting when you look on it. We are all unique with different gifts and talents and we all have a role to play in the whole scenery where our uniqueness fits perfect even if it isn’t always obvious to us and it may take a while to find that role. In that sense we are all chosen to play our different roles. No one is better than the other either. We are all needed and we are all perfect and beautiful.
We should also remember that we have all chosen to be here and be who we are before we incarnated. So in that sense we are all indeed chosen. Chosen by ourselves – not by anyone else. Which is also a view to consider when you wish to stay empowered within yourself. 🙂
