November 6--Small Creatures

For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love. 
--Carl Sagan

    Carl Sagan, astronomer extraordinaire, was well acquainted with the mind-boggling vastness of the universe. In the grand scheme of things, we are definitely "small creatures." It would be easy to feel insignificant, but it is love that prevents that. It is each individual's ability to love, and what he or she does with that ability, that makes life the joy that it is. 
    Let's look at another aspect of vastness--that of the infinite free choice each human being has. On the downside, we are currently witnessing seemingly unlimited ignorance, hatred, corruption, violence, and racism. It is bearable only by faith in the power of love to overcome such horrific choices. I believe the very essence of us "small creatures" is love, and that each of us is fundamentally good. 
    Let love and beauty reign,
