I occupy a body. This body has a mind that is brilliant and a mouth that is articulate. It was created in the image of HASHEM. Look at what it can accomplish; look what it can do. It is deserving of extraordinary honor.
I — am the occupant of this body. I am the little guy inside who tells the arms to move, who tells the mouth to open.
So am I deserving of honor? The body that I occupy sure is; just look at what it can do. But I am that little guy inside — small, insignificant, unimportant. Both realities are correct, and this is the balance between the extraordinary greatness of man and a healthy dose of humility.
