I thought this was an amazing video. If these metronomes were on a solid surface, they would never get in sync with one another, and there would be no harmony.
But, when placed on a soft, movable, surface, they yield to one another and within a short time the chatter of them being “individuals” is replaced by the peaceful harmony of rhythm.
“…make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. -Phil 2:2-4 (NASB)
Be loving, be flexible.
