I am never ever going to stop exploring the nature of our universe.
I am just not willing to live in the darkness and turn my back on scientific findings of incredible truths and pretend this is the only version of reality.
Why do that?
Why live a life that is seen through one hole instead of the whole view of the world.
Unfortunately we live in a world where we talk about celebrities, drama and gossip.
And I do that too. Still.
When the cosmos is so vast, so magnificent and so complex. We close our eyes and go to sleep.
Just writing these words down makes me want to scream from the top of my lungs and say ‘wake up world.’
Where did you come from?
Why are you here?
Why don’t you want to know?
Why don’t you want to be an explorer?
I am not asking for us to become Christopher Columbus.
I am just asking us to question our immediate environment.
Or even read a book about something greater than ourselves. Imagine that.
Imagine the possibilities of our humanity if all of us decided to explore something, anything. This blog was born out of this quest.
I want to help shift my own brain alongside anyone who wants to explore with me.
Even if this blog created a few new thoughts in the big pool of millions of repeated old thoughts I would feel as if I am doing something.
My own story of wanting to know more about this physical world started when my husband died ten years ago. From that moment on everything changed forever.
But I don’t think you need a tragedy to be awakened.
I don’t think you need to fall hard to want to see the truth.
I don’t think it has to be that difficult.
All you need to do is ask a question and search for the answer.
When you find it. Incorporate it in your life. Then ask a new question.
Life is about asking the right questions and finding your way to the answers.
If it wasn’t about that then the universe would not be complex.
We would live in a world that did not hang in the vastness of dark matter alongside some round rocks also hanging from nothing. It would be flat.
And not infinite.
It would be something we could see from the beginning to the end.
It would be something we would know about when we were born.
Instead we live in a cosmos that is so complex and so foreign that we will die and not find out why we are here, what we are made of and what lives inside these bodies.
For many, waking up and knowing that we are hanging in the middle of nowhere is a normal experience. But there is nothing normal about that. Nothing.
Could it be that we are all asleep? Hypnotized. Programmed.
Enough of that. Enough of experiencing this weird life thinking it’s all normal. And this next sentence will infuriate many. But I am going to go ahead and say it. Religion is not enough. Learning about saints, and looking back into their lives and miracles to understand the cosmos is not anywhere near an answer. It is a glimpse into the lives and works of extraordinary humans.
Since when did we make it ok to worship the past and ignore any new miracles and findings? (click to tweet)
I want to worship the existence of this magical world.
I want to pray to the stars and the moon and the infinite energy that surrounds us.
I want to know more. I want to see more.
I want to wake up every morning and look up wondering why am I hanging on this blue ball?
I want to know where we go when we are asleep?
Did you know there is an answer to that? Maybe even many.
I want to know what happens to me after I die.
I want to discover the answers. And so should you. Maybe the saints and sages knew something we don’t. Maybe they were explorers. And if they were alive now they would say ‘look ahead, find out what’s out there.’
I wasn’t planning on writing this today.
I was about to answer one of the questions I received from one of the readers and all of this came out.
This Star Letter wants to ask you to question everything you see and everything you don’t.
There are so many things around us that are invisible because we are not questioning this reality.
Let’s all go on a journey that will lead to a consciousness that will allow us to travel to faraway planets. See creatures that are mesmerizing. Find parallel universes. Maybe even live in a nonlinear way. Outside of space and time. Outside of this illusion.
Call me crazy. Call me whatever you want but there is one thing I know for sure. I will die asking questions and demanding answers. I hope you do too.
We are in this together.
If we can’t go explore what’s out there because we would rather be at home watching TV then there is something wrong with us.
Maybe what they say about the matrix is true.
This is a simulation.
What else can explain this repetitive way of living?
So help me prove this theory wrong.
Go outside of your regular programming.
Explore outside of this reality.
Let’s do this. Pretty please.
