the universe seems neither benign nor hostile, merely indifferent.

~carl sagan

for some reason, i find this comforting.  good and bad really only exist in our minds, and we are totally capable of choosing which reality to go by. 

no, i don't think the universe is some kind of all knowing benevolent thing, and i don't believe there is a god.  in the same respect, there is nothing evil or hateful.  

all we have is time, and our chance to try to do something good while we're here for a few seconds.  what supports the universe, i think, is to sustain it.  to love all that we have, build and create more goodness and love, and share that goodness with the future cosmo-politans (thanks for this sweet term amanda!) is our sole obligation.

so will the world end tomorrow, on may 21st?  i doubt it, but we really should be living it up every moment, breathing deep and laughing and loving,  like it will.  everything on earth is going to die, we all have a terminal illness.  

so we're here today, let's simply live.  to be alive is SO incredible and lucky, what more do we need?

nothing is perfect, everything is temporary, and today the sun is shining (hehe kinda).  fortune and misfortune will persist in my life, but today i feel happy and i see the universe as beautiful. :) 

have such an awesome weekend my dears!
