“A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.” Swami Sivananda
Technology is great. It opens the world to us. It gives us unlimited knowledge and permeates every inch of our life. It’s amazing. And it’s slowly killing us. Maybe not our physical bodies, and yet maybe so, but technology is killing our spirits. We have become disconnected from the natural world by becoming more connected to the technical. We are energy- light, air and fire. The atoms that make up each of us were once parts of trees, oceans and stars.
This week’s photo challenge is your interpretation of the word TINY. For me, when I think of tiny, I think of people- of you and me. We like to think that we are the biggest and the baddest but we aren’t. We are one infinitesimal piece, a tiny speck in a universe larger than we can ever imagine. We move about unaware that we are living in a world within worlds on our own planet. Worlds that exist throughout nature on so many levels. This week I invite you to look around. To appreciate the tiny things around you and realize how important reconnecting to them is.
