Because I am special, I am entitled and deserve and have a right to special treatment. I’ll fight for my rights!
Could entitlement be a setup for defense? Hmm, could it BE a defense?
What, how, why, and who determines entitlement?
When living inside my First-Second Degrees of Illumination bubble, I hold certain concepts as absolute truths. One of those concepts is entitlement, which seems to take on a defensive posture towards wholeness – working to keep me safely tucked into a world of competition and comparison.
I intend to use entitlement as a means to bend wholeness to my will, to accommodate my need to feel special – as if wholeness can be manipulated. I confuse the concept of equality, a main ingredient in wholeness, with fairness, a main ingredient in entitlement.
