You are a collection of astral dust, a lump of atoms and molecules. You're one person in the world. That world is but a spec in that solar system. That solar system is just a blip of light in the galaxy, and that galaxy is but an ever shrinking mass of particles, doomed to collapse in on itself and implode into another universe. And here we all are, all so worthless and pointless, hustling and bustling on about our lives that will ultimately result in absolutely nothing. Trying to prove ourselves, trying to leave a legacy. But to who? To what? In the grand scheme of things, nothing we are capable of will matter.
The farther you zoom out, the more your perspective changes. You can step back and really observe how frivolous life really is.
You may be just a bunch of atoms stuck together; but you're a mass of atoms that knows it's a mass of atoms. How many things in the universe have that knowledge? Instead of limiting our view of the world with current events, TV shows, celebrities and distractions of social media; we should learn to step back and think about the universe. With these thoughts comes a sense of peace and calmness. However, one could get lost in this expanse of relative size which is why some people put a threshold on it.
That threshold can be whatever you want, but it is this threshold that allows us to have purpose; without a goal in sight, beginning is incredibly daunting. Some call it God. Is there anything wrong with an idea that makes you feel important? That makes you feel accepted and loved? It is when that idea chokes down on one's ability to really wonder that limits his or her imagination. Purpose and Wonder go hand in hand. Be encouraged to continue exploring the unanswered questions in your mind. Never rule out something because you think it limits you, and never rule out possibilities because they are beyond your threshold. When these two ideas respect each other, the revolution of the mind can take place and humans can truly accomplish the impossible.
P.S. That was incredibly preachy. HERP UNIVERSE GOD PHILOSOPHY DERP. I blame my friend Rosco for making my rusty mind gears start turning late into the night when I start sounding INSANE.
