You and Me

Many people try to compare themselves to someone else no matter if they know them or not.  Some people will compare themselves to someone to determine how much they know, are they stronger than you, and for a whole many other reasons.  Many people want to also see through comparison if they are better then person X.  What needs to be remembered is within the Force, we are all equal.  It is useless to compare yourself to anyone else because there are no two people who come from the same life, experiences, education, and etc.  True comparisons if you really wanted can only be done when everything is equal as to what makes it up, two people can never be equal in their background.  We are all different.  We all have different upbringings, we come from different cultures, we have different levels of education, and there is no way you can accurately compare yourself to someone else.  So why the point of doing it then?  Do you want to feel good about yourself?  Do you want to show someone you are superior?  In the long run all of that means absolutely nothing.  If you want to compare yourself, compare yourself in the now to yourself from 5 minutes ago, 1 year ago, 10 years ago, and etc.  The major part of being a Jedi is to improve yourself.  Don't try to compare yourselves to others when determining to find out if you have improved because you can't.  We all have different abilities, strengths, weaknesses, and skills.  Just because we are all different does not mean we are not all equal.  We are all just as important as the person next to us, 5 miles, away, or on the other side of the planet.  But what makes us all unique and different is our skills, abilities, education, life experiences, upbringing, and many other individualistic qualities that make us who we are and define who we are.  So don't compare yourself against others because you will just settle into a false security as whatever you learn from that comparison will not be true and will not be accurate.  As I have been saying as of late, look within and not outside of yourself.  In the Force, we are all equal but it is who we are that makes us unique and an individual.
