Perspective



When we come to realize our amazing insignificance in the grand scheme of the universe, we become aware of the extreme significance of the small things that make up our lives.

We can quit living petty lives and focus our energy on our children, families, friends, nature, the preciousness of good health, and the importance of cooperation and being kind to one another.

Considering the vastness and richness of space helps put things into perspective. How important is it that I spend more time making more money, to buy more stuff, to impress more people?

Is that really our ultimate purpose on this "mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam"?
