Have we taken the time to question our existence? Do we know that like fishes we all swim in the same ocean? Lineage gives us an edge over others because of our connections, it doesn’t make us smarter and wiser than a person born outside of our lineage. Deriding, humiliating and castigating our fellow human beings doesn’t uplift us, it just shows how brutish and inhumane we are. The same fate that awaits the person we look down on, is the same fate that awaits us. We all die, though we know not when. Our money and status won’t save us, our connections won’t save us. We can’t take anything with us. We came with nothing and will leave with nothing.
