I am trying meditation by being aware of the immensity of the universe. Hubble telescope has found that the universe is vastly bigger than we ever imagined. Just in our galaxy, the Milky Way, there are tens of billions of solar systems. Our sun is a small star by comparison. If you hold out your arm and put your fingers one centimeter apart, Hubble has found ten thousand galaxies in this tiny space. Imagine! In every direction, in every square centimeter there are thousands of galaxies! Even during the day, just beyond the clouds. I am becoming more aware of my place in the universe.
