We think we live in a world with others. No. We live in a world of many worlds. Each person a world unto himself. Herself. When one person dies, a whole universe disappears, and when one person is born, an entire galaxy emerges. We should think about this deeply. Through forgetfulness we have profaned the sacred. We forget what we truly are, what we are capable of, how magnificently designed (or evolved) we are. Worse still, some of us not only forget, but we vehemently remind ourselves, and others (like it’s our duty) just how insignificant we “really” are. We use the phrase “in the bigger scheme of things” as a prescription against an inflated self importance. It’s good to see it from that viewpoint on occasion, to rein in our tantrums of ego and unreasonable demands we make on others; ourselves. But lingering there too long, we forget how vast and complicated and marvelous every single one of us truly is. I think we should all try to recall, including myself, how fantastic we all are, and have patience with everybody. After all, we’re new worlds surely but slowly emerging.
