"Grand Canyon" Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, USA
The Grand Canyon is so vast it is hard to be able to conceptualize even when you look at how vast the landscape is. From what was glaciers and water wearing the sides of the canyon over time, I take it as a reminder of our habits. When I was interning as part of a medical team in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India, we spent the evenings talking philosophy as a group after prayer on the Ganges. Something that struck me was the idea of wearing down your canyon. When you have a bad habit, rather than focusing on the habits that are creating your canyon going deeper and making it run dry, we can create new habits. Over time our new habits create a more solidified canyon that aligns along our path. As we shift our focus to what aligns with us, our canyon that represents the poor habits begins to heal and flow with water again and the canyon that aligns with our path, makes a more direct waterway to our destiny.
