How frequently do you remember that we're journeying through the UNIVERSE?!
.
It's mind boggling to even BEGIN to think about the absurdity of what's happening at this very moment if we zoom way out.
.
Most of us (myself VERY much included) are so consumed with the day to day stuff of living (the)life, that we normalize the the fact that we're cruising at around 67,000mph around the sun. Like...what?! When I even begin to think about that, or how infinitesimal we are amongst the cosmic soup that is the universe... well, it makes buying groceries, answering emails and even just getting out of bed to go to work or do anything seem absurd. The fact and (relative) reality of our existence floors me. It makes me want to cry. It's beautiful, and awesome, and absurd and jaw-dropping and...words don't do it justice. It makes me smile. It is a reminder that our stuff is so small in the scheme of things. That my own dramas--OUR own dramas, and dreams that indeed feel very real and huge and super important, are just the smallest of splashes in this unthinkably enormous sea of stars, planets, suns and space.
.
So when all your own life "stuff" feels overwhelming and jaw-clenching in it's intensity, when the politics and injustices and wars make you want to slam a fist down, remember, you, my dear friend, are on the most Magnificent rollercoaster ride free wheeling through outer space, not so dissimilar to the dudes in Star Trek. Of course, tend to your stuff--CARE about important things and take action. BUT, maintain, or at least try to remember this perspective, and let go of the fruits of your doings and actions and labors. You are one trillionth the size of a grain of sand (ish?? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ) on a beach that is virtually immeasurable in size. And, you can tap on the screen of your iPhone and order pizza, ice cream or your new car in a few seconds. Welcome to space ship earth, where the most absurd and mind boggling things can happen immediately, or arrive via Amazon Prime in about 48 hours. Don't waste another second. Jump in baby, the water is fine! Happy Sunday you crazy alien, you! πŸ‘½πŸ‘ΎπŸ›Έ
