Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The same can be said of most life and career situations. Let go of your ego, Reno!

Amen. There is a constructive way to say almost anything. Fear of hurting someone's feelings is lazy and selfish. Thank you for this post. God bless 🙏

People are trying to find a purpose to live for. So can it be said that when the purpose would be found people would be glad to live. Have faith and believe in god, purpose is coming soon.

Sadguru ji you're contradicting your own thoughts. If a person isn't experiencing his/her life, how he/she can have problems. It's neutral. So how is there an end of problems ?

This puts me in the mind of Virginia Woolf's 'A Room of One's Own'.

When you lay down outside, looking up at the sky, you’re actually staring down into an infinite cosmic abyss with only the earth’s gravity stopping you from drifting off forever.
