Essence of the Divine




Posted on March 16, 2011 at 3:12 PM

Ponder the spectre of yourself as one human being in the over six

billion people on Earth. See Earth as one tiny planet in a galaxy

of billions of stars, and that galaxy as just one of billions of

galaxies in our expanding universe. We are so minute as to be

nonexistent. And yet, we have the power to visualize, to imagine

the entirety of the cosmos.

In your journal, write about the paradox of being both

microscopic and immense.

"I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if

our spirituality were to come from looking not just into infinity

but very closely at the world around us -- and appreciating its

depth and divinity."

-- Thomas Moore

"I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by

mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could

comprehend it."

-- Harry Emerson Fosdick
