This is us right now. It has been happening every day of our existence, but we are too caught up in the minutiae of the human experience to think about what’s going on in the bigger picture. “I’m late for work”, “What if she doesn’t like me?”, “Have you googled Kim Kardashian yet”?
But it’s fascinating to look at pictures of Earth from space and think “Wow, it’s crazy that we think we have borders and laws for different countries. We even find reason to fight each other for economic dominance or religious prophecy. But, when you look at that picture of Earth, it makes you realize that we are all on this giant rock together. We’re all on this rock that’s spinning 1,000 mph around a nuclear explosion that’s hurling through space faster and faster every day.
Nobody here knows how we got here or even why we are here. (What our purpose is) It’s as if we were born during the climax of human civilization but in fact that is what every human being has thought since Adam and Eve. This story has been going on for billions of years and it will continue on long after my chapter in the book is completed.
With that being said, read this article and be thankful for the present moment. Be thankful that you have been given the ability to comprehend your own existence. Realize that you are able to love and be loved in a world that sometimes seems as if we have an abundance of everything but happiness. Take just
a fewminutes and think about everything you are thankful for. After all, we were given conscious minds so that we can learn from our past mistakes and reminisce in our most joyous memories.
