“Only by establishing ourselves within the unfolding cosmos as a whole can we begin to discover the meaning and significance of ordinary things.”
from The Universe is a Green Dragon:
A Cosmic Creation Story
by Brian Swimme
Think of yourself ‘within the unfolding cosmos,’ an even larger perspective than as an Earthling. What happens to your choices when you fit yourself into the larger picture? It’s good to widen our view beyond the little perspective of our immediate environment. And you are important in the grand scheme of things!
