Casual Friday – The Most Astounding Fact About The Universe View

In last Friday’s Casual Friday post, I quoted George Harrison, who said, “Try to realize it’s all within yourself, no one else can make you change, and to see you’re only very small and life flows on within you and without you.”

I thought it was a fitting way to end my Courageous Women with Cancer Week by taking a look at this from a different perspective. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?”  He answered in part, “We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us, … Many people feel small because they’re small and the universe is big, but I feel big.”

Are we “only very small” or are we “big?” You decide for yourself by watching the video and listening to the entire answer to the question. My answer: Dr. deGrasse Tyson’s response brought tears to my eyes and made me understand that I am big and I am very courageous.

Indeed, Debbie, you are most definitely big, and certainly courageous. Thanks for posting this gorgeously imaged video about our profound connections with the universe, about our significance, not insignificance in the vast galaxies in which we exist. Jan

We Are All Significant

Jan:

Thank you, Jan. It’s a beautiful video and beautifully said. We are all connected to the stars and every one of us is of great significance.

Survival > Existence,
