Stargazing – Our Amazing Universe

Posted on Updated on

I don’t think there is a person on earth that doesn’t look up to the night sky in awe. It’s just one of those things. It’s beautiful, haunting, unreachable, enchanting and mind boggling. I know I’ve often spent hours and hours just staring up at the stars and thinking just how mind-boggling it is.

We are on a tiny little planet rotating around what is comparatively a tiny ball of burning gas suspended in nothingness. We look out to billions upon billions of other stars – some of which have their own planets and moons rotating around them. We do live in a very small world. We can travel it all quite easily and see the world at our leisure. We’re all connected by this modern technology and it’s as easy for me to contact someone in Semporna as it is for me to contact someone in Australia. There are people who view my blog that are from countries I’ve never heard of before – but somehow we are all connected. That much I can grasp in my mind – but when we look to the stars we realise just how small this world is.

When we look to the stars and think of the hugeness of the universe it makes me think of the earth as a whole – no countries, no boundaries, no races or religion. We’re just one.

Chew on that thought for a while Wanderlusters. x

    BOOM!!! There isn’t a day go by that these same thoughts don’t run through my head… it’s un-comprehensible. Does my head in every day, without fail.

    I wish everyone would ponder on these thoughts daily, because the average person is oblivious to it – make all the negative things in the world look pretty petty in comparison…
