I am an exception

I am an exception

This is one of the beliefs that creates a sense of separation.

I may think I am an exception in an ordinary human sense – that others and life in general doesn’t mirror me completely.

And I may perceive all as Spirit (God, the divine) except (a) parts of this human self (shadow), and (b) this I as an observer/doer.

I notice the importance in not censoring myself when I make the lists above. What I write is – at one level – clearly not true, and often contradictory.

And yet, it comes up, it’s held as an innocent belief somewhere, so it can be helpful to take them to inquire and see what I find.

I may be surprised.
