Mother nature is one of God's richest blessings to humankind. She isn't just exquisitely beautiful, but a remarkable teacher. I've allowed myself to become engrossed with the invaluable lessons from this great teacher, and I've distributed her teachings throughout every aspect of my life. They are truly a gem. I will share with you fourteen lessons that I've learned from mother nature and how they have transformed my life. I hope that they will add meaning to your life too.
1. You are not too small to do something great.
Have you ever witnessed the creative work of the ants or the bees? Have you ever wondered how such tiny creatures could build a honeycomb or an anthill of such great size? It makes me wonder too. Both the bees and ants are industrious creatures, and many good traits can be adopted from them.
If you get the opportunity to watch the ants moving pieces of food, or the bees moving from flower to flower during the pollination process. I'm sure that you'll be amazed by their prowess and how they work together effectively. They're truly the epitome of what it means to work hard and to work together. These two creatures have inspired me in so many ways, I can never belittle myself, or even think that there isn't anything great that I can do.
Ants range in size from 0.75 to 52 millimeters (0.030–2.0 in), the largest species being the fossil Titanomyrma giganteum, the queen of which was 6 centimeters (2.4) long with a wingspan of 15 centimeters (5.9 in). Bees range in size from tiny stingless bee species, whose workers are less than 2 millimeters (0.08 in) long, to Megachile pluto, the largest species of leafcutter bee, whose females can attain a length of 39 millimeters (1.54 in).
The next time you feel overcome with doubt. Be reminded that you have a brain of much larger capacity than the ants and the bees. If they can build a honeycomb and anthill. There are far greater things that you can do.
The adult human brain weighs on average about 1.5 kg (3.3 lb). In men, the average weight is about 1370 g, and in women about 1200 g. The volume is around 1260 cm3 in men and 1130 cm3 in women, although there is substantial individual variation. ( References: Wikipedia)
