Distinguishing’ means to see something accurately so we notice and honour it, no matter what it is. We can distinguish different groups of people on our planet, and learn their different history and culture; we can distinguish gender differences with honour and acceptance, and distinguish friends and acquaintances from those who are not yet our friends.
Although we know we are all connected with the energy of ‘oneness’, we also value our individual differences – a particular quality or gift that makes part of us ‘different’ from others.
As children we are taught to always distinguish, and notice what creates our environment, and if it’s helpful or possibly harmful. (When my small granddaughter slapped me, and I asked her why, she replied “because it felt good”. When I told her that it didn’t feel good to me, I could see that she thought about her action quite differently!)
‘Distinguishing’ is using the wisdom we have learned to choose our best action, and if in doubt, always rely upon our intuition to sort through our possible actions, and choose for the highest benefit of all.
When we are ‘distinguished’ it doesn’t mean we are better than others, but our individual gift is of value, and adds its special colour to the rainbow pattern of humanity.
