“It is a common trait of the ego-driven person to judge others by the external measures of their possessions, appearance, and conduct. Frequently, judgment is polite and without mean-spiritedness when you classify and choose not to encourage friendliness with someone based on their position on your status scale. Nevertheless, it is a technique useful to the ego to keep you from knowing your higher self.
All of the judgment concerning appearances is simply a tool for upgrading oneself by comparison with another. Ego gets you to reconfirm your separateness, and it loves to keep you in a state of separation from others. In that way it manages to prevent you from feeling connected as you are in reality.
When you consult your higher self, you learn that you are a part of the same divine essence that connects all of us to the source of spirit. Your inner self confirms that you are no better than another and that you do not need to judge or to compare yourself against others. There is one God, one source with many different manifestations.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Your Sacred Self”
