The Universe is beautiful

2 years, 7 months ago

Some would say the Universe was really complex, then they would start talking about it. How it is designed, how it started to exist and so on. Still, they have no way of being certain about any of that.

The Universe is probably something really simple for itself, but for the narrow perspective of the mind it seems as something different. The mind wants to explain, to create concepts about it and then to prove they are true. Most of the explanations though (If not all?) we cannot even find proof about! That is how we came to the conclusion that the Universe was created by God, or the Big Bang, or that it doesn’t exist and it’s all just a dream.

Yeah, it sounds appealing to have an explanation of our existence, but it seems like we cannot know it for sure. We don’t and perhaps we never will. Therefore, it might be a good idea not to delve too much into any of these concepts, as they will only become more and more complex, which means further and further away from the truth. Let me tell you what I think of the Universe, but still bear in mind that this is yet another concept.

The Universe is beautiful. It is magnificent, it is overpowering. Sometimes I would just surrender to it, I know it would take care of me. And, of course, the Universe is all around and everything, including us, is part of it, therefore we can say that everything is beautiful. And it really is, if you are “tuned” to see it.

The Universe is like the truth – much more than what the mind can handle, much deeper than what we can even begin to imagine. That’s why I say, just enjoy it! Enjoy your (High :P) existence here, it’s much more interesting than any concept, let the mind worry about that.

Enjoy your beauty.

@gosho, first, you might enjoy this song,

The Universe is absolutely amazing! Do you think that we are the only animals on this planet that can comprehend that Earth is just a tiny piece of existence? What goes through the other animals brain when they looked up and saw most of the moon last night? And the Sun today? Do they have any clue that both are just two giant rocks, one molten and one hard, really far away from us?

Nice post Gosh, you really helped me start my day right!

@ilooklikeawaterbottle, hey, thanks for bringing that up, and the song was nice yes :)

About your question, I am sure that animals too see all the beauty around us, I’ve even shared a few moments of contemplation with them just looking at Nature. And maybe they don’t really know what the Moon or the Sun is, but do you think we know either? I think they don’t really care what is what, that’s why they are usually in their natural state – happiness.
