The Sahara Desert • Symbol of Forgiveness
The Sahara desert is a starkly beautiful wilderness of mountains and sand. Marks of human civilization are almost absent. None of the usual things that bother us have much relevance there. The desert has been unchanged in essentials for many centuries and foregrounds the timeless basics of existence: the sky, the earth, the baking heat and the low whistle of wind across the barrenness.
The Sahara reminds us that flaws do not matter much. In comparison to the elemental loneliness of such a place, our lesser concerns drop away; our commonality feels more important. We can look past the shortcomings and errors of others and life - and honor our shared humanity in the midst of desolation.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
