Are We All Lost Stars

“Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.” ~ Carl Sagan


I am often so humbled by my smallness in this universe. Do you ever feel that way? Often we are so busy in our lives rushing and going and then coming back again that we don’t take the moment to lay back and just stare at the vastness of the stars in the skies. Carl Sagan said it best when he said, “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” Yet we so oft choose to believe we are the center of the universe, a singular thought that tends to limit our full possibility, declining our potential. Well, I don’t reckon I know how I got here from the quote up there, but, well, it’s written so there it is. Perhaps it’s just something to ponder whilst taking out the trash today.

  1. I think you captured the sentiment precisely. We are specks. If everyone would think of themselves as a particle of sand on the beach and remember that without the other grains they would be washed away into obscurity maybe the world would be a more peaceful place.
    Then again, I am a start gazer and that dust in the air could be pixie dust lulling me into an optimistic haze. I think I am ok being a bit hazy; beats the alternative. 🙂 Cao, you are always welcome to my pixie dust cloud, come sit a spell.

    1. what a great way to put that, you are a poet EJ. Now scootchy on, over *wiggles on the cloud until it fits just right* “Would you happen to have about you any icy cream? The world is always best when viewed with some icy cream”

  2. lol, not sure what draws me more today…scratches head. Is it the post and what you had to say, or is it the banter between you and EJ. I’m not sure I love them both for different reasons, but one thing I do know is…..your lovin that Genisis Head and I am loving it on you. Now share that Ice Cream…hugzies dollface ❤

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
