ok short version of all my questioning on this, seriously!
I have no judgment on these ideas, completely. That is, I find myself agreeing somewhat that one who realizes that hurting people is not okay and wanting to work towards peace and caring for mankind may be more aware of the spiritual part of their life (as well as a hundred other examples of people being more spiritually -aware, mature, evolved whatever) but that also ego is a hindrance in spiritual health.
To think your spirit could be more evolved, or your spirituality more evolved or anything about your self is more evolved than the person next to you is a dangerous thought on the spiritual journey.
Pride that you are more beautiful, spiritual, intelligent all of these things seem to trip people up into bad habits and so on.
We recognize one is more talented in something, more skilled, more practiced and experienced – these things are more tangible and measurable but the other things one could argue into groups of people being more valuable and others worthless.
When we recognize we are spiritually equal if nowhere else than we can rob some one of their worth. But if that person is a murderer than are they of the same worth spiritually? What can we say about their spirituality?
I go back and forth, help me with your thoughts please!
