Working on the smallest parts is also working on the biggest whole.

Have you ever put your thumb up in front of your eye while looking at something in the distance? It blocks your view and seems SO MUCH BIGGER than the mountain, doesn't it?

Details are like that.

You've probably heard this saying a million times before too: 'Can't see the forest for the trees.'

Sometimes we get so caught up in the details that we lose sight that it's a part of the larger whole. One detail seems to be the main thing and there are so many other 'things' surrounding it that are the same size, so we start to question whether we're on the right track; whether what we're working on now is important, will it really make a difference?

The key is to keep checking the bigger whole picture, to make sure this small detail is still a part of it.

Then it becomes a matter of tending to it, with the same passion and purpose as the whole.


And patience.

Because the DIVINE is in the details too.

Keep the light on!
