What are we before the Universe that imposes itself? Who are we before the enormity of the planets and constellations? We are nothing more than sidereal dust – cosmic – that vanishes in a faint breath of a breeze. Thinking about the Universe is a measure of humility because it makes us think that we are nothing at all; Man is not the measure of all things.
We have a giant ego that interferes with and distorts reality. In this gigantism of soul we lose the consciousness of being small. When we reduce ourselves to our universal and atomic insignificance, we realize that there is a huge space in the way that precedes us. When we are humble we realize that there is more place to be occupied.
The ego is greater in a capitalist society but there must be a work for its destruction so that we can live a more charitable life. Let us be the drop in the ocean that contributes, in its minority, to the blue immensity in which we all see ourselves submerged. Let’s be small and learn from the Universe – electric power. It’s all in You!
