What makes you unique as a human being?

Updated on March 10, 2012

What is it that makes you unique as a human being?

Is every single person unique, it is my belief that they are. Not only are the unique by virtue of being and individual, but also because they are the only human being that will ever be uniquely them.

You are the one and only you.

Being you is your mission while alive. Being you is the most important thing you will ever achieve. You are the best version of yourself. No one will ever be a better person than you are here and now.

There are many ways that human beings are similar in biology, psychology, pathology, and even morphology. Yet there is something that is unique to the individual that cannot be reproduced. Some might call it their spirit, or their soul. Some might define it as the spark of the divine that is uniquely given to each of us. Some might call it an individual step forward in the evolutionary ladder of human growth through natural selection. Some might even just call it dumb luck of the material world and its laws of existence. In any of these cases, something makes you the only one of you that exists. Probably you are the only one that ever will.

Even if you believe in reincarnation, there is nothing that contradicts this notion. Each lifetime is a step forward and down a different pathway of lessons or dharma. All paths may lead to the same enlightenment, but all lives are special and by definition original. You are the first and last you that will ever come to be. Any other incarnations are simply newly reborn versions of the self, but not the same self ever again. This is a universal truth in all the major belief systems. Life is precious to all human beings and probably all lifeforms that are born into existence as well.

No matter what we believe about God or a higher power, even if we believe such a thing does not exist, all of us are unique. We are all so much more than just mere individuals, by virtue that we are the only human being like us that ever will be on Earth. Now or ever, this we can be sure of with some degree of certainty. Even if we do not know this for sure, it is likely best that we live as if it were true. For wasting our time here on Earth is obviously counter productive to being the best human being that we can be.

Live life like it were the only time you will ever live.

This is the point of life, by living this life as if it were the only one we shall ever have. We should live this life to the fullest, because it is the only chance we have to be this person, this individual, this soul, or this unique human being. What more precious of a gift can we be given? It is unlikely that anything will ever be more special than the time we are alive, no matter what the afterlife or lack there of may bring.

What makes you unique as a human being?

It is that you exist here and now. That is the most beautiful and wonderful gift that anyone can have, so it is important that we do not waste the opportunity to live well. Blessed Be.

      Excellent Blake-You are so right about our individuality and making every day count in this life. I'm an identical twin and I still have my very own spark. LOL

      I agree, no two poeple on earth are alike! We are valuable just as we are regardless of what we do.
