I Am Fascinated By The Universe

    I LOOOOVE this topic!

    The fact that we, or anything at all, exists just frazzles my mind. We are a small part of this immense...THING; yet we are a huge part of it. There is nothing unimportant, but nothing is so significant. Everything needs everything, BUT everything can be gone, and the remaining...

    It's amazing how interconnected everything is.

    Nothing seems accidental, but rather deliberate. Consider the delicate balance of something so small as the body's central nervous system: Not one person's occipital lobe is responsible for her/his vision, everyone's is. That's by design, but whose? Why is earth the only planet...

    Sometimes I feel fascinated.

    Sometimes I feel overwhelmed. It is true when they say that the more you acquire knowledge, the more ignorant you realize you are. I'm this tiny peck in the universe. A worm under a rock in face of a Multiverse of wonders. Sometimes I wish I had all the knowledge in the world...

    I'm fascinated how certain beautiful objects

    or things can be such a breath taking view. How the crispness of the air blows on my cheek, how the frost of my lips feel when it's really cold outside, how you know there is more life out there than you can think of. That fascinates me. The universe is beautiful, the world is...

    I was up at sunrise the other day and.

    .. honestly, sometimes I am just shocked by the beauty of some things in this world. No matter what happens in the world, or how I feel inside - the sunrise will always stay the same. It will always be beautiful.

    The universe is such a wounderful thing.

    The fact that everything interacts with everything on planet earth is a fantastic wonder itself. The way everything entertwines with everything is miracle material. And then do look out into the universe is something far more spectacular. Places we haven't even discovered yet...

    Do you think flowers ask each other

    if they are beautiful? Do you think the trees ask one another if they look fat today? Do you think birds concern themselves with that which they cannot control? Perhaps nature speaks to us in ways we can only understand when we quiet the noise around us enough to listen. Step...

    One thing that has always fascinated me is

    that when we look up at the stars in the sky we are "looking into the past". You see the stars light takes millions and millions of years to fully get here, also meaning it takes millions and millions of years for the light to leave. So who knows maybe we are looking at the same...

    How did we end up here on planet Earth?

    Why is life such a mystery ? We are born free yet trapped with a life into which we are born. I look up to the stars and feel such a connection. Like I belong somewhere else. Earth is not an easy place to survive.. I feel there are millions of earth's that support magnificent...

    You know that icy moon orbiting Jupiter.

    Why We Are The Way We Are (And You Love Us For It)

       One day, the earth looked up and said to the moon, “You’re a beautiful sphere, I’m intrigued by your ghostly appeal and your silvery light, but your inconstancy concerns me." Moon batted her eyes and murmured, “You speak like a lover but accuse me unjustly. I may be...

    Who couldn't be?  The Universe is

    so far beyond our comprehension, in size, in complexity, in scope, that it begets all the sense of wonder that has occupied humans since they first began to develop self-awareness.  I once was reading the Lotus Sutra, and in it, a measure of time stuck in my mind.  If...

    where Time seems to come to a standstill. It is a beautiful and powerful relationship where Space embraces them both as equal as they are needed for us to age gracefully. If I stop moving, I'll die soon. If I never stop moving, Time will give me a wrinkled suit to wear, which I...

    I am amazed at what the Earth is capable of. I have really struggled in life though. I have struggled because I feel surrounded by people who just don't realize what they are part of. I see the beauty in it all. At the same time, I view some humans as parasites to the Earth...I...

    The universe is such a mysterious and magical thing. No one can truly understand it because of it's complexity, but why would you want to? I love to just sit with a hot cup of tea, clear all my thoughts, and notice all the beauty around me. The universe is by far the most...

    It is natural to be fascinated with the Unknown.

     The Universe.  It's literally in front of us and we just  don't have the understanding of it. Where did we come from? Are we alone in the Universe?  How can you even possibly say yes or no, if you can't know?  Where do you stand as a little human being in counting the...

    It is a strange thing to watch a life slip away.

    The stillness just before death, the anticipation, and the flurry of emotions that follows. Maybe it's just me but the essence of the living is not dependent on the sophistication. To watch a fish die affords me nearly the same experience to me as grieving a family member...
