There is something healing about this picture.
Don't you think so?

Yes, healing because it tell us how insignificant we are.

We are such a self obssesed species, always competing to show who's better.

But, look at this mammal, leisurely enjoying its treat. Does he seem like he gives a woot about us?

In a world full of such beauty, our standing is insignificant. But here we are fighting, competing, criticising and killing just to show the world how special we are. ~ Humans are not the only ones on planet Earth.
_________________________________________

We should take a look at our intentions, our dreams and our need for praise from space. I love the 'pale blue dot' video by carl sagan. It is an eye opener, I watch it every time I'm stuck. I hope we live lives trying to prove we are anything but special.
Love,
The gypsy queen

I don’t think I’ve ever felt so small and insignificant in my entire life and it’s strangely comforting #palebluedot #puravida

As the news fills with stories of starving polar bears in the melting ice cap, terrorism and accusation after accusation of “sexual assault” based off trivial interactions that could have been privately handled instead of publicly destroying a person over...I am inspired to share some deep perspective from Carl Sagan. I had a wonderful convo with a long time friend who runs the wine section at a local store and he suggested I look up “The Pale Blue Dot”, a term given to a picture of earth taken from Voyager 1 as it left our solar system. BEGIN QUOTE: “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization , every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, every hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar”, every “supreme leader”, every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” —Carl Sagan #author #writer #writersofinstagram #carlsagan #palebluedot #perspective #thegoldenrule #stopwhining

“Pale Blue Dot”
Un pallido puntino azzurro, questa è la terra da una distanza di 6 miliardi di chilometri, foto scattata nel 1990 da Voyager 1.
Idea che fu di Carl Sagan, che disse: “La Terra è l'unico mondo conosciuto che possa ospitare la vita. Non c'è altro posto, per lo meno nel futuro prossimo, dove la nostra specie possa migrare. Che ci piaccia o meno, per il momento la Terra è dove ci giochiamo le nostre carte. Per me, sottolinea la nostra responsabilità di occuparci più gentilmente l'uno dell'altro, e di preservare e proteggere quel pallido punto blu, l'unica casa che abbiamo mai conosciuto.”

We are truly just a spec of dust AND the most important thing in the universe. #reflection #perspective #carlsagan #reading #getyourreadon #palebluedot #thatisearth #exsistentialcrisis
