Wee as a grain of sand

How long to realize that we are so tiny as a grain of sand!

Of a sudden our lives can change the shape of our world can no longer be so rounded, be a little less than perfect ... and that's when we realized how much we need one another, how fragile we are.

Often by disease, others by the presence of imminent death, others simply by the deep inner reflection ... does not matter ... we realize our smallness.

The other day I realized that most of the time we rely on a system of comparisons: I'm great because I can see the small, small am when I see something bigger than me. The problem is that there will always be something bigger and ultimately, we have God. So we are always small.

And if we are all small, because distinctions between us? Who can be considered more by having more money? Or more goods?

Does the wealth is not the simple, right?

And so goes life, we will continue to compete by having more, being inserted into the more complex environment, forgetting that, first of all, we already are great to have God within us.

Poor ignorant little ones that are like a grain of sand on this beach gigantic souls who are the world!
