I read an interesting post by Rethinking Life which I invite you to go and look at and it got me to reflecting on something I’ve always been keenly aware.  We feel that we are terribly important, we’ve passed centuries creating myths and religions to prove this to ourselves, but each time I look up into a clear night sky, I can’t help but reflect, that we are of little or no consequence in the big story of the Universe.

the Universe keeps moving on
with or without humanity
the rivers flow, the rain falls down
and thinks nothing of our fate
and if by chance we ruin Earth
the planet will go on
we are just a moment
in eternity…though
we think we’re so much more.
