I Am Fascinated By The Universe

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,859 People

    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...

    Must people be unhappy?

    Must there be unhappiness for there to be happiness? No. Unhappiness is simply the absence of happiness. Everything is. You are.

    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...

    Aren’t you amazed with the universe?

    You know, every time I look to the stars I feel a different emotion, I can’t even look at them for too long in an open sky and without holding anything. It just gives me a desperate sense of insecurity and inferiority. I even have nightmares with it! For example, I look to...

    I absolutely love life.

    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...

    People tell me to prove

    that emotions and Love exist. It is quite a tragic situation under a pessimistic perspective because they do not understand. Love is the connection that you feel with the universe.

    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...

    Beauty At Best.

    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 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...

    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...
