Ah Thomas,

If we could truly love others for what they are, instead of for what 
they could be, or "should" be, how much better a world we would make 
for ourselves. But we are doing the best we can, that I firmly 
believe. In the meantime, we can try to realize that every individual 
is a part of the Absolute, that each carries within his/her innermost 
heart the spark of Divinity, of perfection. This is the paradox of 
the concept of hierarchy. In truth there is no "higher" or "lower." 
Our material finite minds demand some sort of categorization. In 
truth all is one eternally. This apparent separation is an illusion, 
the dream emanating from the inner reality, that which exists for the 
purpose of enlarging the collective consciousness. The more we 
approach to the realization of Unity, the more the illusion of 
separateness decreases in power. 

All the best,
