Remember you are but dust

20130213-073416.jpg
Life and death.

In this picture is both life and death. The rotting fly and the numerous newly hatched spiders that surround it. It is not a pretty sight, but it is real and it is what life is about.

Not all of life is beautiful and sometimes it is ugly, just like the rotting fly caught in the spider’s web. Without a life and death comparative where is life’s meaning and where is its wonder. Where there is new life there is death waiting, threatening and menacing. To always focus on one or the other is unhealthy, we all need to have a balanced view. Yes that means looking at the ugly side of life from time to time.

There is benefit in remembering your mortality.

In the words of the Christian Ash Wednesday liturgy.

“Remember man that you are dust, and unto dust you will return.”

Something to consider today.
