Insignificance

20110905-044741.jpg

Playing with yoga poses in the presence of the giant California redwoods could have us looking rather insignificant.

Are we really?

Some rather famous people seem to have thought so.

“The massive bulk of the earth does indeed shrink to insignificance in comparison with the heavens”. Nicolaus Copernicus

“Everyone needs their memories. They keep the wolf of insignificance from the door.” Saul Bellow

“Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.” Aesop

I suppose the yogi would agree with Mahatma Gandhi:
“Everything you do will seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.”

This sounds a lot like the Bhagavad Gita – Work for the sake of the work and not for it’s fruits.
