Significance and Arrogance

image

The sun and the rain are fighting for supremacy of the sky today. One moment the sun seems to have the battle in hand but the next the grey clouds and rain rally to retake the advantage.

It’s been interesting to try and work outside between the clash of giants. I may not know who’ll ultimately claim victory but I do know I have no say in the matter. Forces beyond my control are staking their claim and I’m a bystander.

Nature, when we take the time to see and connect with it, is a marvelous teacher of humanity’s true place in the world. For all the bluster, quests for power, political campaigns, battles for territory, fights over resources we can’t make the sun shine. Even in our technological age when humankind seems to be making incredible breakthroughs in science, medicine, computer design, the understanding of the human body and the planet on which we reside, we can’t make it stop raining.

Wisdom teaches us to recognize the difference between our significance and our arrogance.
