Do me a favor and breath deeply. Pull it in and then release it. The air is incidental, isn’t it? It’s the breathing that you noticed. You probably gave little thought to the air itself. That’s because air is all around and it feels pliable and weak. It is only when air is marshaled into a formidable force, like a hurricane, that it gets the respect that it deserves. We need the air that we breath, it a building block with the potential to give life or take it away. It is a resource of infinite importance that is invisible because we only see it when it smacks us in the face like in a hurricane.
Air is not the only resource that we besmirch on regular basis. Even for those that are visible, we cannot always see because we are too busy with our present lives to notice. The world is not lacking for resources or opportunities but rather people that can see them in their dormant state. Most of us are waiting to get picked up in a hurricane of opportunity. The problem is that the hurricane is never coming. You need to go get the hurricane, possibly even build it from the ground up; one molecule at a time.
The world has already gifted you the component pieces. Are you going to complain that it has not put them together for you? Or can you find the joy in the noticing, finding, building and creating? If you don’t build your own hurricane, you’ll need to chase someone else’s and take the chance of being blown away.
