From Me To The Universe
And if I really wanted to learn how to live, I might shed some of the expectations. Then, I might become so light, that if you opened a window, I might blow right out. Because then I will be caught in the wind of the Universe or, part of It, It. The mind, then, is so relaxed that we can be with It and be It, at the same time. It, is the Universe and we are the tunnel and at the end is the depths of the Universe, only, the Universe is also the tunnel because there is no separating the two, only in our minds. Here is where we find inspiration, or perhaps, where we become It.
Every once in a while (and I would love for it to happen more often), I become almost completely deflated. Sometimes it happens after exercise, sometimes after learning something that makes something i’m interested in make more sense, but the feeling is the same — I think of myself as one human, sipping from the infinite, among the hundred-or-so billion humans that have ever lived (and themselves sipped) to date on this planet, itself one of countless other planets orbiting their suns, themselves but one of countless stars in our galaxy, itself one of countless others in what we’ve observed of our universe (which itself may be one of countless other universes). It gives me some perspective, makes whatever problems I have in my life seem _so_ much more manageable in comparison, and it’s complete bliss to me 🙂
