I found this little gem in "Celtic Parables, Stories, Poems & Prayers" by Robert Van De Weyer.
"How many grains of sand on the beach?
How many blades of grass in the meadow?
How many drops of dew on the tree?
If you could count all these,
You could count the number of... [illegible]
Do not even try to count.
And give thanks."
This seems to me to be a healthy world-outlook. If it becomes important enough to someone that it shapes his /her interactions with other people and with nature, then it is most certainly a religious disposition. What makes it sensible is that it orients a person toward a pro-social view of one's fellow human beings, it leads to increased enjoyment of life, and it refines the person in the expression of his/her caring for all of the relationships that surround and support him or her.
