Nature has no ego. Animals have no ego. And we ever so desperately need to let go of ours.
Look to the natural world for detachment of self. Let the mind heal, and allow your random thoughts the space to move through your mind like a river allowing them final release into the metaphorical ocean.
Let the grandeur of nature console us and remind us of how inconsequential our problems may be and how small we truly are in the relatively large spectrum of life.
I think we should all try to make regular appointments to gaze up at the sky, or into a field of grass, for detachment can bring us much needed serenity, even if it is short lived. -tM
