We are insignificant

IMG_0322

Even though I haven’t lived that much of my life yet, I have lived enough to know, how small and insignificant I am in the grand scheme of things.

When you are flying in an airplane and look down at the earth below, how can you not be in awe of the vast expanse of it all. It looks like a piece of art work from the sky. Intricate details all wonderfully and effortlessly placed. No human beauty can compare to it and no human being can replicate it.

I like to go hiking, sadly I don’t get to go too often, but when I do I can’t help but feel so tiny surrounded by pine trees, mountains rivers and lakes. They are enormous and far wilder than I am. I mean when was the last time you met someone who is as tall as a pine tree or sycamore? Who can say they are just as colossal as a mountain? No one. And why would you want to be? All I know is, There is something much bigger and grander than us. You can see it when you look at the earth. We are but minuscule creatures living imperceptible lives. Our lives fade away in a short amount of time, but mountains, oceans, forests, rivers, canyons, and lakes will continue to last as long as Earth exists. How can you not believe that there is a higher power when you know these things are true.
