Sometimes I hear a person say “I’m no better than anyone else” even though they are on a path which requires soul-searching, questioning of oneself, trying to be the best one can be.
I think yes, you are right, we are no better than, not superior to, others. But sometimes I get a sneaking suspicion that I am doing lip-service to humility. Hopefully going through exercises will prepare the way for becoming. Sometimes something happens, I do something, or think something, where I am forced to squarely face my imperfections. Then I truthfully realize I am no better than anyone else.
But I will keep trying to be better than I was yesterday, than I was maybe even just 10 minutes ago.
