Our Hurting World

Our Hurting World

The world feels so messy right now.
Covid is back on the rise.
19 children and 2 teachers murdered in their classroom.
War in Ukraine
Famine across Africa
Women’s access to safe abortions threatened
Life and our connection to each other feels both complex and complicated.
And we often make things messier in our attempts to avoid the discomfort of the mess.
Nature is brilliant at being both complex and simple. At prioritizing efficiency and strength, creativity and calculation.
Us humans aren’t the best at that. We make things harder, more complicated and convoluted than necessary.
Now we can’t manage to make perfect hexagons like these wasps made. Mine would look like a circle going through puberty.
But we can look at where in our life we can make things simpler. Where there is mess that is of our own creation.
Much of what makes the world feel so messy is out of our control. Start small. Find one thing to quit, to rethink, to clean up.
Find ways to delight in the beauty of simple things and admire our ability to navigate the complexity of life.
