Partial Summary

As human beings, and this is absolutely critical, we die if we don’t have something in the world which calls us and requires our attention, if we don’t experience ourselves as being fundamentally needed. We have an enormous amount of neuroscience on the importance of being genuinely needed in the world.

Being needed is not a contrivance, it’s not a function of our social, psychological, or cultural conditioning – it is part of the essential quality of being human. Being needed gives us a genuine sense of identity because we realize that reality intended us. Our uniqueness is an indication that reality wanted us.

Imagine for a moment the billion billion chemical reactions that have had to take place uniquely within a structure of a hundred trillion cells dancing in utterly unique complementarity!  We each have a unique atomic signature which is enormously well developed. Uniqueness is a core structure of reality and reality intends uniqueness. It is telling us that we are not extra. No one can give your gift.

Our unique perspective emerges from our particular place in the space-time continuum, so our quality of being needed is not our social, psychological, and cultural conditioning. Fundamentally being needed creates in us a sense of duty and honor. Duty and honor is something that we have lost in the liberal world, even as we have multiplied our options.

The notion of being obligated to something is culturally in opposition to a superficial sense of freedom. The sense of obligation in the original Hebrew is the same word as for love – Havana Seba. When we actually know our own identity, we realize that we are a unique configuration of the love-intelligence and love-beauty that is the initiating and animating eros of all that is that lives in me, as me, and through me; and as such, I’ve got a unique expression that I can actually give to the world that is fundamentally needed by all of reality.  That is the premise of a Unique Self Symphony.
