CHERISH TRUE INDIVIDUALITY

Now and then we hear someone express the desire to be like one of his fellow beings. This wish, while it may spring from admiration of the good the other expresses, really manifests a sense of limitation and possible of covetousness.

It is commendable, of course, to appreciate the excellent qualities expressed by others, such as humility, honesty, unselfishness, magnanimity, forbearance, and suchlike, which characterize truly great men and women. But to wish to possess or duplicate the capabilities of others is to misunderstand the source and origin of all individuality and capability—God, Soul, illimitable good, of whom man is the perfect image and likeness. When one thinks he desires to take on the characteristics of another human being, it is always because of a misconception of man's true nature as the reflection of God.
