Stardust



If you do not yet believe that you are one with the universe, please read the following:

"Every atom in your body is billions of years old. Hydrogen, the most common element in the universe and a major feature of your body, was produced in the big bang 13.7bn years ago. Heavier atoms such as carbon and oxygen were forged in stars between 7bn and 12bn years ago, and blasted across space when the stars exploded. Some of these explosions were so powerful that they also produced the elements heavier than iron, which stars can't construct. This means that the components of your body are truly ancient: you are stardust."

  1. "You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should." - Max Ehrmann

    "We are stardust.
    Billion year old carbon.
    We are golden..
    Caught in the devil's bargain
    And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden." - Joni Mitchell

    Thanks for leading me to meditate on how integral I am to the universe, Ariel! You're a real mind-blower!

  6. One universe, we are all one. The first sentence "Every atom in your body is billions of years old" put things into perspective how we are all connected at the core.
