Answer: The thing called originality in this world is an animal feature. It is absolutely useless and has no value for a spiritually advanced person.
One’s originality is revealed upon reaching unity with others, when we open our soul through the overall connection. Only a soul remains genuinely distinctive, whereas various earthly properties are temporary and disappear.
Question: What is so special about the soul?
Answer: It is unique because of the mysterious fact that it is similar to the Creator.
The soul is a desire that has a potential to transform itself and become similar to the Creator. And this similarity is in each individual soul.
