Working in harmony with our surroundings is something every thoughtful person strives for. It is a natural urging of the soul and it feels rght. When we challenge that natural balance, we feel unsatisfied and agitated, much the same as a fish out of water.

But when we cooperate and surrender our ego to this natural order of things we awaken to the understanding that each and every one of us is an integral part of a fantastic scheme. We become encouraged, we feel worthy, and so we try to make a difference. Some people call it "living".

Sadly though, many people never really experience what "living" is all about, because they are so busy finding fault. Such people tend to think the world revolves around their petty experiences and so they never truly see things as they are and miss countless opportunities.

Unlike them, we need to see the world through the eyes of Mother Nature and appreciate every little facet of her glory. It begins wth valuing the difference. Seeking to first understand before being understood and knowing that every part of her makeup has its place. Oh, the beauty of individuality. What a lovely mosaic the world is.
