Every person on this planet is special, every place on earth is special, and when we elevate one person over another or elevate one place or country over another, we create status. Status says that one person or place has more value than another or one place or person is more important than another, and yet such thinking ignores the reality that we are all here together at this precise moment and linked together by the cosmic forces of nature.
Consider a jigsaw puzzle. Is any piece more important than another? Why do we think a human life is any different in the picture of the present world? Self importance and status are the devil’s handiwork.
