Sometimes, it’s hard to put our human existence into perspective. We go about our daily lives, distracted by seemingly important emotions, events, and routines. We tend to forget our Earthly, miniscule place in the universe. Perhaps this is because we don’t feel our daily 360-degree rotation (a speed of about 1,000 miles/hour). We don’t feel our 365-day circle around our sun, in which we travel 66,000 miles/hour. Most days, we can’t even look up at the sky to see the billions of stars in our Milky Way Galaxy due to light pollution. Mind you, the stars we can see only exist within the constraints of the Milky Way—not the infinite other galaxies in the universe. According to the Joe Rogan Experience #725, we are “psychologically disconnected” from the expansiveness of our universe. There is a curtain between Earth and the universe, which is only lifted in open nature where we can stargaze and appreciate the astronomical vastness.
Despite our apparent disconnect from cosmic power, we must recognized our interconnectedness with the Milky Way and beyond. Ancient civilizations have goverened their lives based on alignment of the stars, planets, and moons. Astronomy looks at the arrangement of cosmos and how it affects our relationships, decision-making, and life path. How about Mercury Retrograde LINK periods? Everyone feels it, but not everyone recognizes it. Whether we accept it as truth or not, “within our backdrop of consistency on Earth,” the changing cosmos are affecting our lives.
Undeniably, our streams of consciousness are connected to a higher power—an infinite universe. We should take the time to look up at the stars and appreciate the expansive unknown.
