“I really admire bees’ sense of common responsibility….Although sometimes individual bees fight, basically there is a strong sense of unity and cooperation. We human beings are supposed to be much more advanced, but sometimes we lag behind even small insects.” The Dalai Lama
I love this quote. I’ve always wondered if the common belief of species hierarchy (in which humans are considered the superior species) should be flipped upside down. There are so many times when I am humbled by the innate intelligence and perception of animals. They are able to teach humans some of the most important lessons about life, survival, compassion, unity and acceptance.
