Daily Practice 170/365

Title: "At the outer edge of the universe"
(click to view larger - recommended)
As overwhelming as it can sometimes be to think of something as immense as the universe, it does provide a nice counter-balance to the more prevalent me-me-me thinking. When we look at the sky, we see only the most infinitesimal fraction of the universe, yet on some days the view looks like a little tableau of what it must be like in very deep space. The universe is currently expanding, the rate of expansion is accelerating at a speed it is difficult for us to comprehend. Our little lives here on earth that seem stable and slow paced are an illusion in the grand scheme of things.
