What is the relationship incompatibility that causes our human relatives to be so critical of the Original Ones in their family? Is it that it gives the group a target to unite over?
One of the reasons, in short, is the innate search for sameness (uniformity). The dynamic works like this:
- Those of lower consciousness seek to reduce those who are exceptional. They do this through criticism and by minimizing the exceptional one's accomplishments.
- Those of higher consciousness, on the other hand, seek to uplift the more mediocre ones around them — which also causes discomfort and feelings of inadequacy in others. They do this by overestimating them and having too high expectations. They make others feel pressured to excel and having to compete at the level of the more exceptional one.
All in all, the relationship between the two disparate groups can be uncomfortably strained.
What is the solution?
Masters who cultivate their humility and seek to learn, rather than to teach, seek to be inspired rather than to find uniformity (a tribe of like-minded others). They live from the principle of 'my being is my sustenance', instead of seeking the support of others.
