“The life that breathes me is home to all souls. We are children of stars, galaxies learning to walk, eternally at home.” — Unknown
According to scientists, The Universe as we know it, started to exist about 13.7 billion years ago, right after the Big Bang.
If we compare the human existence to that and compress it in a 10 minute video, we only existed until the last fraction of a second.
What does this mean for us? We will get back to the history of The Universe to get the incredible facts.
First, it took billions of years before our galaxy, the solar system and the earth were even formed.
Second, after the earth was formed 4.54 billion years ago, it took hundred millions of years before the very first life form came into existence.
Third, the first form of humanity to walk on earth was recorded around 2.5 million years ago. Since then, humanity has evolved into what we are today.
All of this means only one thing, that we are an evolving species contained in the continuum of the ever expanding cosmos.
We exist not as individuals but as a collective. Every particle that constitutes our cells and atoms is the same kind of particle that constitutes all the creations around us.
Our home is maybe this planet, but we come out from The Universe. Everything that we are comes out from The Universe.
And if we ask what triggered the famous Big Bang to occur we would be disappointed because there is no answer to this.
Scientists say some things happen for no reason at all. They just do. There was no time and space before the Big Bang. There might just only be total nothingness. Who knows?
In the story of creation, our individual lifespan appears as a speck of time, a tiny sand in the vast ocean that’s ever expanding as far as we know.
Yet, this doesn’t mean that our existence doesn’t mean a thing. Within ourselves is the energy of The Universe, the light of the stars, and the breath of an evolution in progress.
If we come to take a look at it, really take a closer look, we will see that our business on earth has nothing to do with pursuing material gains.
It has more to do with being with the flow of the ongoing process of creation, of becoming the light that we truly are.
The changing times are enough evidence that point us to a much bigger force that is at work. And this force is slowly shifting our perspectives in alignment to our true selves.
If we find that alignment, we will once again remember that we are all connected, that we are all one.
And if ever we come to doubt ourselves, we have to remember that an energy higher than ourselves took the time of crafting us and everything else.
