I have been talking much about healers and priests and psychics and gurus. And with all these people I feel that they have the urgent wish to be special. A great desire to have something that nobody else has.
Everyone knows the stories of superman and other heroes with great abilities that save the world. In every movie that you watch and every book that you read there will be one hero who is special. If it is an action movie, fantasy, a tragedy or even a romance a book or a movie needs these characters which have great powers, great feelings or great looks. Someone who makes the book worth reading because you hope that the hero turns up and saves everybody, that the perfect man comes and makes the woman’s life complete or that the tough woman walks in and shows to everyone how independent women can be.
Only with this a story keeps the reader’s attention. And I feel that people who tell that they have extraordinary abilities have the wish to be exactly this one character. They think in their life’s story, they have to be in this role. They don’t want to have the side role of just the normal person with good and bad feelings. Or, if they admit to be having bad feelings, then there is another reason for it, for example their extreme vulnerability which cannot be compared to anyone else.
You see, always something bigger, better, deeper, more extreme. Let me tell you one thing: no matter who you are and what you are doing, in the movie of your life you will always have the main role, you will be the hero. So please stop trying to be someone who you are not, leave the ego of wanting to be different and better than others, just be yourself! You are not greater or worse, higher or lower than anybody else. God made you perfectly fine, just as you are.
