People are both unique and sociocentric. In the full realization of our sociocentricity, we value the uniqueness of others and others value our uniqueness. Others are special to us, and we’re special to others. The transcendent is the infinite divine valuation of our uniqueness and the uniqueness of others, or, to phrase it differently, the infinite importance of our uniqueness and the uniqueness of others to the divine: the infinite specialness of the self and all other selves The synthesis of the transcendent and the immanent is the acceptance of the infinite specialness of the self to the divine, and accordant acceptance of the infinite specialness of all others. The resurrection within the soul is the freely willed reaction to the infinite divine valuation of the self by reciprocation of the infinite divine love, which culminates in infinite love for all others.
You’re not good, just, or meritorious. You are special, valuable, and important. Within our own context, the best way of expressing this concept of holy is that it’s the strongest possible word for special. Hallelujah- special is God.
I love Hitler, and I love my roommate, and of the two, it’s harder to love my roommate. Loving Hitler doesn’t cost me anything. Loving my roommate costs me something every day. And that’s why I suspect it will be the more rewarding love.
