A Bedtime Story

att00211.jpgDear Kids. at the risk of being stupid and childish, let’s read this bedtime story:
Man is indeed a small creature on Earth. The Earth is smaller than Jupiter.  The Jupiter is much smaller than Sun. The Sun is much much smaller than Arcturus. The Archturus is much much much smaller than Antares. . . itself a tiny part of unknown existence.att00214.jpg

att00217.jpgGenerations of man in the future, let say in the year of 2008 x 2 , or of 2008+500,  would smile and laugh at today’s knowledge, beliefs, imaginations, conceptions, and civilizations; and they would think how primitive, retarded, and stupid we are today – if they can still find traces of our existence.Make peace with yourself — ‘cuz you are nothing, not even a dust in the wind. All men’s imaginations and conceptions, about human beings and their universe, are indeed invicible transient particles scattered along a tiny part of the great history of the universe .

. . . and words of wisdom say:  take it easy kids, make peace with yourself. Expect no mercy for your absurdity. Take it in a gentle serenity. Nonetheless, let your soul swim upstreams, let your wings fly you to your own reverie, and let your conscience set rules and boundaries,. Until you cease to exist, at the end of your future, do whatever you think and feel is right. Our greater soul will surely do the rest.
Life is just a series of absurd waiting periods. Yet, life is a beautiful mystery. Life is a playful wonderful wonder. Love it.
