January 15--Infinite Out There and In Here

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.  --Carl Sagan

    I am regularly fascinated each morning by the Astronomy Picture of the Day...

    This is our sun, the photo from January 14. It is HUGE. Just one sunspot is the size of a whole planet. It is a giant ball of burning gas 93 million miles away from earth, yet it sustains all life here. What amazing events happened bazillions of years ago to create that star and its happy little satellites?!?!? We star-gaze at night with the realization that some of those "stars" are actually whole galaxies. The infinity of it is mind-boggling. 
    Equally infinite territory to explore is our inner world. There is always more to be known, as we humans expand in consciousness and learn ever more about our true nature. I suspect there is an extraordinary amount of untapped power there (as demonstrated by Jesus). It's good we have eternity to play!
