EGO AND THE UNIVERSE
I blew it today. I forgot the word ‘up’ in the quote. I was going to start over, but then I read it a few times and thought it is perhaps even more apropos without the ‘up’ since it applies to more people. I don’t see myself as obsessed with self and I bet you don’t see yourself that way either. But nonetheless I often find myself unaware or unconcerned about things outside myself. It makes me small when I am unaware and unconcerned, whether it’s about the neighboring field or the neighboring galaxy. It also makes me ineffective.
As I was finding this quote about our egos and our place in the universe this morning I happened upon a time-lapse photography video that illustrated the same thing. Thanks to Leesa Parker for posting it on Facebook.
