This is a great rendering of important and valuable thoughts. One way I’ve expressed it is that we — each of us — are not important, but we have importance in the overall scheme of things. There is no such thing as a single human being; it is an impossibility. And the shutting of oneself off from the whole by focusing on ones own perceived importance creates that impossibility for the individual.

When we act as part of the whole, we manifest that incipient importance.

Good luck with your new challenges.
