My favorite garden was in full bloom this week. Profuse blossoms, a symphony of chirping birds and buzzing bees, such an abundance of life. I couldn’t help but smile…I was in heaven.
But it was this particular bee who caught my attention. As I watched him move from flower to flower in a graceful dance with his fellow bees, I had a thought.
He was just being himself…a tiny creature making a selfless and profound contribution to the planet. With no concern about finding his place in the world, or garnering attention for his work, this little bee simply created beauty and forwarded life.
Imagine never having to wonder who you are or why you’re here or what you are to do. And being so completely aligned with the Earth and Her rhythms that your life simply flows.
I must admit, I felt a twinge of envy. Then came a feeling of deep gratitude for this tiny unsung hero. And I say thank you to the little bee for his selfless contribution…
