It is up to us to discover to which one we belong. In any group the relationships indicate inner realizations and connections. The realities appear in each of our lives.
Now any group will show interrelationships. We can see then for ourselves. There is great diversity within the family of consciousness, as there is within any physical race, and there is also great variety within other psychic families.
We choose to be born in a particular physical family, however, with our brothers and sisters, or as an only child. So, generally speaking, our counterparts are born in the same psychic family of our counterparts.
Now categories do not come first. Our individuality comes first. We have certain characteristics of our own. These place us in a certain position. As we are not a rock or a mineral, but a person, so our individuality places us in a particular family or species of consciousness. This represents our overall viewpoint of reality.
We like to be an initiator or a follower or a nourisher. We like to create variations on old systems, or we like to create new ones. We like to deal primarily with healing, or with information, or with physical data. We like to deal with sight, or sound, with dreams, or with translating inner data into the working psychic material of our society. So we choose a certain focus, as we choose ahead of time our physical family.
