So I wash my hands not in the proverbial sense, which is to say that I am not responsible for any of this. On the contrary, I wash my hands because if I take care of myself best I can, I take care of everyone else, too. And I will remind you to take care of yourself, because only you can do it for yourself as well and because my life is literally dependent on you being alive and healthy. And only if we are both healthy can we commune and share our space with one another again.
In contrast, if I see myself primarily in terms of myself as a fellow human, I will then have more than seven billion people who I can feel deep connection with. And this is wonderful, isn’t it? What do you need to fear or worry about when you have seven billion other people who are with you?
