Picture Perfect – Collective
Photo taken on October 24, 2007 with Canon Powershot A510 at the entrance to my home, showing savory (satureja montana), honey, and bee. Second image is a part of the main one, cut and zoomed, so that hopefully you can see the bee.
An edifying example of collective is the bee.
Busy as a bee, not to be confused with being a busybody.
In the hive, each individual works and performs his/her task for the good of the whole community.
The properties of the honey depend on the properties of the collective whole of the flowers whose nectar compose it.
Nature, put into place by The Creator, and Mankind work together, enabling us to gather the honey the bees have manufactured. (Or should I say proboscis-factured?)
“Along My Paths toward My Heights bees work hard for all men.” The Revelation of Arés 28:26a
The whole being the sum of its parts, the collective identity depends on the individuals that compose it. The more people who decide to be good, the better the world will be. One person cannot save the world, we must work at it collectively.
“How could a one man and even a thousand men recover the Spring buried under the stamping of battles, under the steps of merchants ‘ caravans, under the processions of priests, under the loins of prostitutes, under the Wind of the Anger of God ?
Many repenting generations will pitch camp on that desert in order to sift its sand, excavate it as a mine to recover Life.” The Revelation of Arés 24:4-5
