☆ * •. ¸ A sparkly, spiritual podcast of my thoughts after the Perseid Meteor Shower, and stargazing up at the Pleiadies.
The universe is so big and special and we’re not separate from it,
so we’re all special too. Which is a humbling thought.

We Are All One ~
Not as Different as We Think
“Just as I wish to be free from suffering and experience happiness so do all other beings. In this respect I am no different from any other being; we are all equal.”
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
“We are all equal; we are all one.”
“Consider your own place in the universal oneness of which we are all a part, from which we all arise, and to which we all return.”
“We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist and forever will recreate each other.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Krauss’s quote rocks until the last few lines.
That we are all born in the heart of a dying star isn’t just inspirational poetry, it’s scientific fact. (And used to be Cosmic Loti’s tagline ;~)
99% of the elements on Earth were formed at the heart of a star, and scattered throughout the universe as the supernova exploded into death, forming the basic make-up of planet and people.
Prof Brian Cox deliciously shows this here,
where he explains that ‘C’ is for Carbon:
Going back to Krauss, it’s fact that at the very least, Jesus was a historical figure who taught beautiful and profound truths which remain with us today.
Invidiously offending his followers is rude and unnecessary; and completely misses the point.

re: top video:
* that 1st line: “Perseid Meteor Shower – didn’t see many, but the Pleiades looked sweet.”
** this is just one Buddhist take on why We Are All One.
