It amuses me that circumstances have a way of reinforcing needed life lessons. Some might consider it coincidence or situational awareness, but I call it providence.
I was listening to a podcast and heard it. I grabbed a book and I read it.
Then I went out for a ride after work, snapping photos without thinking…wondering if maybe one of them would adequately, in a single image, communicate the ride. When I scrolled through the images, I actually saw it.
I am small.
This isn’t what I was actually thinking while out pedaling. But when I saw the image of my small bike shadowed against that deep horizon and massive sky, I was humbled.
This life is not about me, and remembering my place in it will help me live it well.
Well said, Chris.
Consciousness and understanding that we are part of the Universe are great.
Profound. And with the right dose of humility.
Yes, we are. Good reminder. Thanks.
Good post, and wise words
