7 Arrows – Dark Arrow of Comparison

compare-643305_1280

With Attachments, Dependencies, and Judgments in play, the fourth dark arrow in the quiver is Comparison.  Separating ourselves from self, life and others, we look for connection through group identity.  The “I am better (smarter, richer, etc.) than you” becomes “We (my group) are better (smarter, richer, etc.) than them.”  Being at the effect of time, space, and others, we need support systems to verify our judgments and separations are valid.

Can you name all the places where you identify with specific groups so that your judgments are justified?  Do you identify as an apple or an orange?
