Steps to awakening series, step 3 of 12

Step 3- A strong connection to stars and space.

As the day turned to night on the eleventh of August, just like every other year, the presides meteor shower was at its most visible far overhead. This is a phenomenon that billions of people never even notice, let alone stand in awe of.

Conversely, as night was about to turn into day, I glimpsed Venus in her beauty, staring back at me through my bedroom window. The planet was so radiant in its brightness that it somehow made the billions of other stars seem small and insignificant. However, that’s an inaccurate depiction of all the other stars not named Venus.

When our focus is clear and distractions are limited, we notice more. More things that were always there, but our lens to was blocked to see.

These events also serve to keep us grounded and make us realize how small and insignificant we are. When we look closely at the night sky, we 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. Only then can we begin to fathom the enormous nature of our existence.
