Physically none of us are the same, even identical twins are never identical physically. However, two can spiritually be identical. Two conscious beings can have an identical conscience.
Consciousness is life_it is the awareness of being. The magnitude of the consciousness is proportional to the awareness of the consciousness; and greater the intensity of the consciousness, greater it's Self–consciousness. To be self conscious is to be conscious of consciousness itself. And greater the 'self conscious', greater it's consciousness of the universal consciousness–Life–God.
Life has principles–Conscience, and the self conscious are aware of the theses principles according to the magnitude of their self consciousness. And the spirituality of any one 'self conscious' is their conscientiousness. The self conscious have a degree of autonomy from the universal consciousness_the source of all consciousnesses–God. How intensely self conscious one is, is how autonomous one is, and how powerful one is.
The nature of life is continuance of the existence awareness. The universal consciousness is continually growing in awareness and knowledge along with it’s conscience. With knowledge comes the power of creativity. The evolution of life on earth is an example of it's growth that is materializing on a physical plane. It's thoughts and it's creativity materializing for all that it has given Self consciousness to witness it's knowledge, power and existence. And mankind represent the express intensity of the consciousness of God. However, not many men and women’s self consciousness express the intensity of the Conscience of God.
Consciousness is Life and Conscience is Love. God and the Principle of God. The self conscious Man can grow in knowledge, and know like God and create like God, and also love like God: be conscientious like God. To grow in knowledge and conscientiousness simultaneously is to grow parallel to the universal consciousness, and be one with it, and have it’s power.
Two people cannot have a perfect relationship unless they are both equally conscientious. Unless two can perfectly relate to each other, two cannot have a perfect relationship. With each one of us having distinct desires, aspirations and talents; how can any one of us relate perfectly to another, unless we all love equally?
Since we cannot compete with the source of our consciousness, we (the self conscious) compete with each other with knowledge, disregarding our conscience to overpower each other; to have more ‘life’ than the other. Relationships that are conscienceless are mere associations for the purpose of competition. They are perfect relationships that end with winners and losers.
Loving relationships are relationships that are parallel for the purpose of coexistence (not codependence). They are perfect relationships that share knowledge and co-create, and extend.
Yes, “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance;”
And, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Prov.1:7

You have heard that it has been said, ‘you have to love yourself before you can love others’. And that, 'you must 'learn' to love yourself'. This is like saying, you have to learn to breathe for yourself.
Love is the breath of life for the spirit, and loving is like breathing for the spirit. Anywhere on the planet, you breathe the same air to keep your body alive. But your body is not you. You are your spirit, and to live you must love like the body breathes naturally to live.
Everybody loves themselves naturally like breathing air. What is not natural is to breathe for someone else, and in virtue of this it is assumed unnatural to love someone else. If we all love others as much as we love ourselves, the world would be absolutely peaceful.
When you breathe, you take air that the trees give. When you have cut down, or destroyed them with harmful chemicals for your bodily needs, what will your body breathe to live?
When you love yourself, what do you love about yourself?
Is it your body you love or, is it your status (ego), or your Spirit (character)?
Almost all love their body as much as they love their status. Some don't love the body they are born with, and some among them change their body to whatever shape or form they want. However, it seems, most are not satisfied with their status, and work hard to upgrade their status. This drives the world economy, that is destroying the natural world. It is not our greed for physical comfort that drives the world economy and give power to the dollar, but our desperate need for status (ego trip) that gives power to our spirits in a physical world where love is scarce.
To love yourself, that is your Spirit (character), you must have deep affection, fondness, tenderness, warmth, intimacy, endearment, devotion, compassion, care, friendliness, kindness–for yourself. And unselfishness is the quintessence of love–only realized by a ‘surrendered’ ego. So, if you have love for yourself, you must have love for everyone else, and the natural world. If you don't have love for others, then you really have no love for yourself.
If you are compassionate, tender and deeply affectionate, you are lovable by no other than another who is also deeply affectionate. But in a world where many are loving themselves like breathing for themselves, you may be fooled by them who can ‘act’ very affectionately. For they who are greedy for love knows what affection is; for they have great affection for themselves, and will give you Academy Award winning performances to deceive you. To them, loving themselves means making others need them so that they will be served (obeyed). Not for their affection, but for their ‘power’ to give affection for a price. Since most are naturally loving themselves, the world is naturally a desperately needy place for power in the guise of love. So Jesus said, "the world will love it's own, but I Am not of this world." And sacrificed His power for His Spirit, and they who crucified Him, sacrificed their spirit for their power, that is here today and gone tomorrow.
To a people who refused to love, Moses gave laws to be obeyed, but the love of God manifested and declared; ‘love thy neighbor as thyself”.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave of His immortal Conscience, that whoever abides by it, should never be in darkness; but embody the love and spirit (character) of God”. John 3:16
“Come Follow Me.” JC.

To fail at something means we have attempted to achieve something.
Why do we humans want to achieve anything?
In the world, success means, health, wealth and, most of all SELF-ESTEEM.
If we have pride, even poor health and meager wealth will keep our sanity.
In seeking wealth we work hard, and in doing so some of us break the law of God, and the law of Man. In seeking health, most of us work out, and take remedies that often not do not work out, hoping to extend our earthly life; which comes with a shelf life–a best before and a use by date.
However, character building has nothing to do with health or wealth. It is to do with who we are. It does not have a best before or a use by date. It does not have a shelf life; which means there is no prop for our Spirit (character). It is free to wander in the boundless realm of the eternal, not be stuck on a transient world as if it is a part of it.
When we are born, we are 'nobodies'. Then the world tells us to become ‘somebody’. Usually that is to become a money maker; and how much money we make is how successful we are. But to a billion people, the greatest– the Emmanuel, did it on a carpenters salary. To another billion who is the– Enlightened One, gave up everything most who claim to be Buddhists work so hard for.
So as it is written, "Pride comes before destruction."
Success comes when we learn to humble ourselves. But we must gain first, so we can give up after. Matt 19:21
For all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the PRIDE OF LIFE–is not of you, but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of his spirit abides forever. For it is the spirit that lives, and he who tries to save his life will lose it, but he who loses his life for his eternal spirit shall find it.
