We gaze into the silent galactic canopy above us, and at once feel connected yet insignificant. We encounter this duality so regularly that we take it for granted. And yet the duality of existence has informed our thinking and our living since the time of our most distant ancestors. It is the equal and opposite force at the core of our physics. It is magnetic, and it is polar. Even at a molecular level we are here and not here in equal measure. Let us be reminded of the cosmic yin and yang whenever we face unbearable heartache and insurmountable challenges. Let us take heart in unhappiness, which is transient and necessary, for without it happiness could not exist. We are One, and We are Two. One plus two equals Gratitude, our cosmic calculus. Blessed Be, and Amen.
Galactic canopy. Love the phrase!
