A bee goes about his day carrying out his work, collects honey and brings it back to the hive. If you get in his way or threaten him, you might get stung.
Ah, that stings. I should have known better, should have been more careful.
We all know that is what bees do.
Have you ever driven in the back country in cattle country? I'm talking gravel road, wandering herd back country. The cows just wander about, grazing and eating. Sometimes they just stand right in the road, minding their own business. You can sit there and honk, drive up really close, but mostly you just need to wait until they move. And of course they move.
Maybe you grew a little impatient, but you never really got angry, right? I mean its a cow, being a cow.
Ever leave food outside, the birds will get at it. Or the coons. You should have known better, should have been more careful.
But why is it that when we get stung by people just going about their business, we get angry.
Why is it that when people get in our way and won't move, we get angry.
Why is it that when people come after what is ours, we get angry and defensive.
Maybe we should have known better. Maybe we should have been more careful.
Speak nicely and guard your mind.
