Steps to awakening series, step 3 of 12

step 3- A strong connection to stars and space and celestial events

As day turned into the night under the clearest of skies on the eleventh of August, just like every other year, the presides meteor shower was at its most visible far overhead.

This is an annual phenomenon that billions of people never even notice and therefore do not get to stand in awe of.

Conversely, about ten hours later as night was about to turn into day, I glimpsed Venus in her beauty staring back at me. The planet was so radiant in its brightness that it somehow made the billions of other stars seem small and insignificant, although that is not an accurate depiction of all the other stars.

When our focus is clear and distractions are limited, these are the types of things that we start to notice. They are also the type of events that keep us grounded and make us realize how small and insignificant we really are.

When we look closely at the night sky and notice that there are billions of stars and planets and that we as humans are all spinning around on one giant rock called Earth that is hurtling through space and time, it is only then can we begin to fathom the enormous nature of our existence.
