Existence Does Not Compare

Girish Borkar


In the vast tapestry of existence, there exists no comparison. Each being, each phenomenon, each moment is a unique expression of the infinite essence of existence itself. Yet, as humans, we often fall into the trap of comparison, measuring ourselves against others, evaluating our worth based on external standards, and losing sight of the inherent beauty and divinity within us.

Existence does not compare; it simply is. From the smallest atom to the grandest galaxy, every aspect of the universe contributes to the intricate web of creation in its own way. Each flower blooms in its own time, each river flows with its own rhythm, and each soul shines with its own light. In this symphony of existence, there is no hierarchy, no competition, no judgment — only the pure expression of life unfolding in all its diversity and richness.

When we release the habit of comparison and embrace the truth of our being, we tap into the boundless potential that lies within us. We recognise that our worth is not determined by external achievements or possessions but by the essence of our being. We are unique expressions of the divine, each endowed with inherent worth and dignity, each with a purpose and a path uniquely our own.

Comparison breeds discontentment and suffering, leading us away from the truth of who we are. When we constantly measure ourselves against others, we overlook the beauty and blessings that are already present in our lives. We become trapped in a cycle of striving and longing, always seeking more and never feeling truly satisfied.

To transcend comparison is to embrace the fullness of our being — to celebrate our strengths and talents, to accept our limitations and imperfections, and to recognise the interconnectedness of all life. It is to honour the unique gifts and contributions of every being, knowing that each has a role to play in the unfolding of creation.

Existence does not compare; it celebrates. It celebrates the diversity and unity of all life, the interplay of light and shadow, the ebb and flow of existence itself. In this celebration, there is no room for judgment or division, only love and acceptance for all that is.

When we live from this place of celebration, we cultivate a deep sense of gratitude and joy. We appreciate the beauty and wonder of life in all its forms, recognising the sacredness of every moment. We embrace the challenges and obstacles as opportunities for growth, knowing that each experience has the potential to deepen our understanding and connection with the divine.

Existence does not compare; it invites us to awaken to the truth of who we are — to remember our essential nature as expressions of the divine. When we let go of comparison and embrace the fullness of our being, we step into our power and potential as co-creators of our reality. We align with the flow of existence, trusting in the wisdom and guidance of the universe to lead us on our journey.

In the grand dance of existence, there is no need for comparison. We are each unique manifestations of the divine, each with our own path to walk and our own truth to discover. As we embrace the infinite essence of existence, we reclaim our sovereignty and step into the fullness of our being, knowing that we are loved, supported, and held by the vastness of the universe.
