No Need To Get Hung Up On Anything

Most of us unconsciously view
ourselves as the center
of the Universe
like the Earth
was once assumed to be.
But we’re really only a tiny
point in infinity.
Each “self” is one part of the vast,
detailed, ever-changing, and infinite
phenomenon called life.
To zoom in on the point is to
lose sight of the Whole.
When you zoom back out,
the Whole is visible once more.
No need to get hung up
on a given moment.
To get lost in the details of
life is to lose your perspective.
