After being stuck at home yesterday, eh, I mean after choosing to work from home yesterday while recovering from a root canal procedure I had on Monday, I found myself enthralled in the Science Channel’s program entitled “How The Universe Works”. I was blown away by how small my comprehension of space was. But equally delighted in the realization of how big my God is. Absolutely mindblowing.
My point for this WONDERMENT WEDNESDAY is this:
A light year is about (I’ve rounded off a bit) 5,878,786,100,000 miles. That’s almost 6 trillion miles that a beam of light travels in one year.
The distance from the earth to the Sun is 93 million miles.
The distance to the nearest star is 4.3 light years.
The distance to the Andromeda galaxy is 2 million light years.
The universe is a big place !
Given the fact that a human is probably smaller than the size of a sub-atomic particle/quantum particle in the entirety of the universe, puts our lives and experiences and worries and problems here on earth, in an extremely infinitesimal reality. What is one thing you can do today, to let go of worry or anxiety and truly appreciate all the good in your life?
(I may be grasping at the connection I am trying to make, but my comprehension of space is smaller than a sub-atomic particle – humor me here.)
