The Sooner You Realise You Don’t Matter the Sooner You Can Do Something That Does

You’re one in an infinity.

I don’t mean any offense. Or to say you’re not worthy of love and respect. Of course, you are.

I’m merely stating that in the grand scheme of things, you don’t matter.

The sooner you realise this, the sooner you can get out of your own way and do something that does.

Otherwise, you’ll live your life desperately trying to feed your insatiable ego. So your name can live on throughout the ages.

In the process, you will hurt people.

Don’t do that. See through yourself. (We’re all full of it.) Understand your infinitesimal position within the universe.

You’re nothing but a speck of space dust. (The paradox here is that’s what makes you so invaluable. You’re one in an infinity.)

In the process, see through everyone else, too. Only then will you really love them.

Only then will you be able to help.
