That's such a very good point, Elyse, about the importance of not feeling superior (and so not appearing to feel superior) to others in our approach to anything. I call that spiritual elitism, an oxymoron if ever there was one, but a real enough (and fairly common) condition.
The call to compassionate action really is a fine line to walk, where we need to avoid the pitfall of sanctimonious preachiness, while at the same time not falling into the realm of moral relativism where everything is passively accepted as simply "an alternate way of living." We've all got our work cut out for us, and as you point out, are called to divergent roles.
