Ponder this....

A friend e-mail me this 3 weeks ago .... :
..............................................................................
Subject: Ponder this; no matter what, or how important we might think we are ..... JUST BE HAPPY

Humbling and exhilarating at the same time....
Now, THIS is really fascinating - it's rather dazzling to see it presented this way




I certainly thought this was enlightening. beyond our sun ... it's a big universe



ANTARES IS ONLY THE 15th BRIGHTEST STAR IN THE SKY
It is more than 1000 light years away.

NOW HOW BIG ARE YOU?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

TRY TO WRAP YOUR MIND AROUND THIS.....
This is a hubble telescope ultra deep field infrared view of countless "ENTIRE" galaxies billions of light-years away

Below is a close up of one of the darkest regions of the photo above....

HUMBLING, isn't it?
How big are you again?.....
AND how big are the things that upset you today?
KEEP LIFE IN PERSPECTIVE.....

DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF!

Send an email to the Brazil embassy your country and report the injustice that the brazilian courts are making with this girl
Release on Flavia’s accident and status of the process.

The resignation is to stop the evolution.

Thank you

Well, you know I love this post.

I have a beautiful picture of the Antares maelstrom, which is a huge storm of solar gases that burn and churn all around the surface of the star, like a cloud, except it's all part of it, too.

I'll have to post it soon with one of the poems.

Peace out.
