You are no lower than the highest. You are also no higher than the lowest. In the eyes of the Dao, it is a level playing field. Do not pay tribute to the one who is exalted. Do not abandon the one who has fallen. Each life is precious, each life has potential. Some reach it, others do not, yet all remain the same. On the ledger of the Dao, there is no better or worse, no good or bad, no special or ordinary.
