Complexity and surrender

Admitting defeat at the hands of life’s complexity, though necessary, is inadequate. Humans are by definition reasoning apes and to merely mutter something about letting your complexity deal with the greater complexity, for all its poetry, is a paltry offering.
First and foremost we must bow our heads to the greatness of that which we desire to comprehend. For it is to great too comprehend. Let us marvel at it instead.
The feeling of the zephyr on our cheek, the delicate dance of palm fronds in the breeze and join with it. The complexity is so beautiful to us.
And then from this new humble stand point let us use our failing senses and flawed thinking, our instruments to find patterns and meaning in it.
