So many times we get bogged down with the ‘stresses’ of life. That’s the trouble with ego, it makes everything personal and makes even the little things seem huge.
One of the things that used to ‘catch‘ me, even before awakening began to happen, was looking up at the stars, gazing at the moon or looking at a picture of Earth. I found it completely impossible to look out at one of those amazing sites and take anything in “my” life seriously. How could I? While life itself is an amazing and wonderful gift, the daily struggles and conflicts our ego makes up are nothing but just that, made up. The dream. Your dream. When I look out at the moon and stars or gaze at a picture of Earth and let go of myself the only thing there is eternity.
