When I have an internal burden and difficulty in my life, I have to remind myself again and again that it’s not me who controls the world, spins it, and gives it energy.
As soon as we realize that the world is spinning perfectly without us, that we are not so significant, things get easier right away. All those things that stand around us continue to exist perfectly – with or without our imagined control. Looking at the clear night sky, you can pause and ask yourself: Do you really live in Los Angeles, London or Paris, not the universe? And what is there everywhere far away?
Scientists make billions of errors in calculating the number of galaxies and planets that are in constant motion. About 95% of the composition of matter is called “black energy” and we do not know what it is. Scientists do not know also. Only 5% is visible to our sensory eye.
In the corner of the vast universe is a very small planet called Earth, where human beings live, the creatures of the universe. These little creatures think they are significant. They, by comparison, do not manage anything. They live short lives. They do not know where they are coming from or where they are leaving. They can hardly predict anything: weather, disease, their daily routine.
And that universe’s dust-sized creature is trying to rule something!
Maybe he is stupid or just a cute the fantasist?!And it’s probably You and Me!
