One Ant, One Bird, One Tree
People love generalisation, resulting in simplification of thoughts and thus the regular assessment of situations. It is extremely convenient to extend a once-formed opinion to a whole area of life! We are working based on the principle of the least resistance! This principle is a broad theory covering diverse fields from evolutionary biology to modern smartphone-design. It states that animals, people, even perfect designed machines would naturally choose the path of least resistance or effort.
However, it is a fact that the generalisation is only a rough and average consideration. Real values or even details are ignored.
Especially small details and nuances create the perfection and beauty of nature. Unfortunately, perception takes only place with our five senses, with the vision occupying a very dominant position. The restriction to our five senses serves our survival, but unfortunately not our conscious life.
Would it not be wonderful if we awaken the ability of contemplation within us? The real consideration while the ability to assess is entirely switched off and not in use! At this very moment, we will experience the beauty of nature.
When you have seen one ant, one bird, one tree, you have not seen them all.
