Vertical and Horizontal

It struck me that the vertical plan is one of striving, competition, pride and, since you are always looking upwards, envying those above you, or downwards, separating yourself from, demeaning and despising those below you; your perspective is myopic and limited by sinful blinders.

On the other hand, the horizontal plan is for the humble, those who remain close to the earth, and for whom the whole of God’s majestic creation is open to their sight, as they whirl in dance o’re his glory.  Blessed indeed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
