Adversity is the best teacher that nature provides.
My feelings go out today to all those who have suffered loss and hardship as a result of Hurricane Sandy yesterday and over the coming days.
One famous observation of Heraclitus, who formed his philosophy from the observation of nature, is “Strife is Justice”. Heraclitus says that destruction and conflict is a natural state of nature, it is through this strife that the universe moves, changes and evolves. By justice Heraclitus means that through strife everything grows and becomes.
For everyone touched by the strife that Sandy unleashed there will be personal growth, wisdom and change. Nature is the best teacher, and hardship is the best teaching nature can give.
