An Astronomical Analogy

The famous Shakespeare’s quote, “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.” 

His quote inspired so many and made them look at life in a whole new way, including me. 

This suddenly got me thinking and I want to use the same “concept” if you wanna call it, and explain the way I see the world from “Universe” perspective. You could try it as well. 

So here it goes, 

The place you call home, is just one small tiny piece of ball among billions. Just step out of your circle, your problems, your differences with people and try to gaze into the universe. I mean, literally.  

Find a quiet place, where sky is dark and the air is fresh. Look at the sky and try to focus on a star. Any bright one. 

Now, the star you are looking at, try to get a closer look at it. Meaning? Slowly fade everything out of your sight but that. Try to see that star beyond. 

You are not looking at some star that’s shinning bright. You are looking at a new star in a different solar system or a Galaxy itself with its own light bright enough to reach your eye. 

Now imagine how small you look when compared to that vast world. 

Why go that far? Think of the Moon that’s close enough to our planet. It has the power to wipe off the entire planet if it misses its course. 

That’s how much we are surrounded by miracle. With so much miracle around us, our problems should seem small and easy enough to handle. 

I believe the miracle of the universe not only gives us perspective but also the strength to weigh down our problems. 

Go on. Change your perspective. After all, we have our own entrances & exits. It’s a short one.
