Us and The Universe!

Few days ago I stumbled upon one of the most interesting videos I have ever come across.

Titled as ‘The Known Universe’ – this is a video which takes us from the Himalayas to the cosmic horizon – till the last point in space that we have observed and takes us back home – to Earth! Kudos to the American Museum of Natural History for such a nice film.

Just to think of it – in this big big universe with millions and millions of galaxy clusters and galaxy groups boosting of many many galaxies – Milky Way is just another normal galaxy … of the numerous stars in this one small galaxy, our Sun is just another ordinary star… and revolving it is one of the planets called Earth… where we the Human kind reside… all of us – in this tiny little place!! And still we have so much of ego, we carry with us such high baseless pride, worry over little things, fight over small issues, make enemies, lie and hide and fear – for what! I wonder sometimes!

This universe has been here for some 14,000,000,000 years and will stay till .. well, till the last tick of what we call as ‘time’. We are here in it for may be not even 100 years! How we still manage to waste our time not doing things that we love, being someone we are not, not spending time with the people who matter and regret later for the time that is gone – for what!! I wonder sometimes!

And still, most of the time I do the same – fear, get hurt, let the anger take over me, worry over issues that should not even matter!!!

And the rest of the time – I wonder why!!!
