Struggling with scale

    George Bailey struggled with the same sense of scale: “I’m shakin’ the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I’m gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Colosseum. Then, I’m comin’ back here to go to college and see what they know. And then I’m gonna build things. I’m gonna build airfields, I’m gonna build skyscrapers a hundred stories high, I’m gonna build bridges a mile long … ”

    At one point, even George Bailey didn’t want to be George Bailey, until he had a change of perspective. This could be what initiated your religious exploration. I recommend reading Ecclesiastes. It reads a little depressing, but it definitely changes your perspective, and as such, your sense of scale.

    “Is there a thing of which it may be said, See, this is new? It has already been, in the vast ages of time [recorded or unrecorded] which were before us.”
