I think there is a lot we can learn by examining how people in the desert “harvest” water. Everyone likes to cite how rough it is in today’s economy, but it seems we often forget that times of crisis can also lead us to innovative breakthroughs and new ideas. Sometimes, we just need the proper perspective.
As I look forward, I can’t help but feel things will get worse before they get better. As such, I want to find ways to free myself from being dependent on others to live my life. When we examine our lives, we can easily find that much of our happiness is tied to things we think are important, things we often need to take possession of in order to define our goal of happiness. We need to remember that happiness is just a state of mind, a choice we make. Once that is realized, we can also realize our true power and claim our very own freedom.
Ok, I will shut up now – time for the video. Watch and let ideas permeate you much like the drops of water as they make their way into these ancient, yet vital, water harvesting systems in the desert.
