Use space to get some perspective on life

I wrote in a previous blog about the effects the stars and heavens can have on our wellbeing (see ‘Although we’re laying in the gutter…’).
One aspect of viewing ourselves in context with the stars is the realisation of just how very small we are in the whole scheme of things: it’s a humbling experience that removes our ego and enables us to communicate with our divine essence.
Take a look at some of these pictures from entries for the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2011 run by the Royal Observatory, Greenwich and The Sky At Night magazine.
Aren’t we luck to live in such a beautiful universe, to be part of something so much bigger than ourselves that our ego is transcended and we can see the beauty in our universe and, as we are an integral part of it, in ourselves?
