We are not so unique, you and I, although we cling desperately to the belief that we are. All snowflakes are different, but they all have six points. None have seven.
It’s our belief in our uniqueness that leads to “I am better than,” or “I’m not as good as.”
When we come to the realization that each of us is the embodiment of the full spectrum of human capacity, we are not so prone to judge.
We see ourselves in each other, from the very best to the very worst. Six, not seven.
I may hate what I see, and you likewise, but it’s the trait, not each other, that we despise.
