It takes 230 million years for the Sun to complete its orbit around Sagittarius A which is a black hole in the central area of the Milky way galaxy in this time the light radiated from the Sun would travel more than 1400000000 billion miles. Concerning human dimensions it’s not possible to grasp, but in universal dimensions it’s almost unnoticeable. Human life is designed to last for about 100 years so all time related figures are associated to this limited span of time, if human life would last 10000 years all our life perception would be totally different. Modern life is designed to immediate response everything has to be done quickly, now or never like there is no tomorrow. Imagine a 10000 years life span, planning the next year would be like planning your afternoon.
Another dimension that determine our perception of life is the physical body, human beings can cope with a mile or 30000 miles but when astronomical dimensions are brought in mind it’s impossible to digest it, the Sun is about 70000 light years away from the center of the galaxy it is about 420000000 billion miles, the distances between galaxies are much larger, our closest neighbor the Andromeda galaxy is about 2.5 million light years away, there are galaxies 13 billion light years far from us, it’s not in the human scale.
From the elementary particles that are the fundamental bricks of all that exist it’s the same story from the other end of the dimension bar, the electron- proton proportion equals the Sun-Milky galaxy proportions.
The biggest universal structures are too big and the elementary particles are too small for human comprehension, from that understanding stems the fact that human being perception is extremely limited. Most of the happenings in our universe we don t see, most of the sounds we don t hear, most of the smells we are not tuned enough to recognize and most of the building elements of our world are beyond our immediate measures.
This understanding calls for certain kind of humility.
The only thing that is not bounded by physical measurements is our thoughts that can reach the other side of the universe in much greater speed than light, those thoughts have to be coordinated with our physical deficiencies, so the light of human life stems from darkness. The freedom of spiritual development is originated in the prison cell of the mortal body and the immortal human essence should form a continuous path of refinement that is mind based rather than body worship.
The physical body lives till the end of the skin, human thought lives till the end of the universe.
Have magic in your life
