What is your observation in the above Photograph?
What a stupid question!
Anybody can tell that.
✔A lady is strolling.
✔There is An empty bench underneath the tree, in front of the Church.
✔Overall the Church building is flanked by three trees one in front and two on either side.
✔And then there is a lamp pole.
✔Some clouds in the sky.
Congratulations on this fantastic observation! You won!
But I have a different take
✔I see this lady as the most insignificant as compared to the trees on both sides.
✔The trees have become insignificant in size and height as compared to the Church.
✔The Church became insignificant as compared to the sky and the clouds which are covering all…the lady, the trees and the Church.
So we the humans are insignificant compared to anything in the Universe but ironically we pride ourselves on ego.
My friend, we are a speck in the Universe and we just think nothing but I, Me & Myself!
We are helpless in our fight against even the tiniest of creatures, for example, Coronavirus.
We never realize how insignificant we are yet behave as if the Universe collapses without our contribution.
“The human race is just a chemical scum on a moderate-sized planet, orbiting around a very average star in the outer suburb of one among a hundred billion galaxies. We are so insignificant that I can’t believe the whole universe exists for our benefit. That would be like saying that you would disappear if I closed my eyes.” Stephen Hawking
So why can’t you make the best use of your life instead of concentrating on petty things?
“To exist in this vast universe for a speck of time is the great gift of life. Our tiny sliver of time is our gift of life. It is our only life. The universe will go on, indifferent to our brief existence, but while we are here we touch not just part of that vastness, but also the lives around us. Life is the gift each of us has been given. Each life is our own and no one else’s. It is precious beyond all counting. It is the greatest value we can have. Cherish it for what it truly is….. Your life is yours alone. Rise up and live it.” Terry Goodkind
✔Nothing is under your control
✔The only thing you can take control of is whether you want to lead a good life or evil life.
✔Never have an ego
✔Start loving your life, irrespective of the situations you are in because you are not given another chance
But my friend, your choices largely determines your fate!
“In this life, we have to make many choices. Some are very important choices. Some are not. Many of our choices are between good and evil. The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices” James E Faust
