We tend to underrate the smallness of our planet, and we tend to exaggerate the greatness of our mundane everyday problems in comparison to The Universe.
We forget the grand mystery we are all a part of and overlook the beauty that’s hiding all around us.
But, at the end of the day, the reality that stresses us is just a tiny illusion on a greater image that’s just a dot on a bigger picture, we are all just humans doing our best.
We imprison ourselves in our little worlds, filled with activities, habits, seemingly important tasks, completely forgetting that most things in The Universe are outside of our control.
That’s why we need to remind ourselves of the truth we so easily tend to forget. We need to read and become aware of facts that shatter the stress out of our reality.
Here are some of the greatest universal truths that will give you perspective outside of your stress, uplift your mood and leave you with awe, thinking what else you don’t see.
5 Universal Truths That Will Uplift You:
1. Relax, nothing is under control.
You are living on a piece of rock circling around a fireball in the midst of an ever expanding and almost infinite sea of darkness, nobody knows anything for certain, everything is always changing and nothing big is really under our control, so just relax.
2. You don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it.
You can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum. The existence of a rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes. To animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at the rainbow, you create it. All the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.
3. Even the most evil person loved someone.
Even the most evil person in the world, at some point in their life had bad day. They did something silly, they cried, they laughed.
They acted as any regular human being, with flaws and talents. They had a favorite food, a favorite song, and an embarrassing secret they didn’t want to share with anyone.
Even the most evil person in the world, at some point in their life, loved someone from the bottom of their hearts.
4. There is always something you can do for fun, boredom is a state of mind.
You live in a world where you have abundance of almost everything. You literally cannot come even close at wasting the resources for fun and wonder, and most of them are free.
You cannot listen to all the music there is, watch all the movies, read all the books, taste all the beautiful recipes or see all the beautiful places of our planet.
There are countless activities you can do, things you can learn and games you can play, by yourself or with others.
There are infinite number of things you can create and even more ways you can express the art inside your heart.
There are millions of people you can meet, millions of stories you can hear and million of lessons you can learn.
Therefore, boredom is a choice, and an absurd one. There is always something you can do to have an incredible amount of fun.
5. There’s something you can always give to others.
At any moment in time you can immediately make your world a better place, by making someone else’s day a little better.
This is something you can always give, of course, if you choose to. It’s a power you have, and a power you have a complete control over.
You can create heaven, or you can create hell, it’s completely your choice. And it all starts with you choosing to do one small act of kindness, to make one person’s day a little better.
