The Inspiration of the Universe - Really?

  Why does the universe evoke inspiration? 

When we gaze at the stars on a clear dark night, we can only be in awe at the vastness and infinity of the universe. The numbers are mind boggling.

Where is the inspiration?

We could be inspired by the idea of infinity or limitless time and space to whatever extent in millions of light years.

We could be inspired by intelligent design. From the "big bang" theory of origins to the infinite variety of stars, galaxies, solar systems, other planets and the likelihood of intelligent life. From the sacred geometry and mathematics of space to the mysteries plasma cosmology that disproves dark matter.

We could be inspired by the science fiction movies of the past knowing that these are possibilities for the future and/or the reality check of today (and that the "force is with us":)

We could be inspired by a Divine Spirit, whose presence is within and without the entire universe, including within us every moment, so that when we are in deep meditation or prayer, we are connected with this Spirit, and the Universe at the same time.

We could be inspired to know of the possibility that other life forms have helped humanity in the past and may be currently and in the future. This is a reality for some, an unknown for most, and a possibility for others.
from a prior blog:

When I saw a stunning photo of the Andromeda galaxy this morning I could not help but reflect again on the amazing mysteries of the universe and outer space. Just one galaxy alone - The Andromeda Galaxy - is enough to reflect on this morning during coffee !

As a reminder, one light year is the time that it takes light traveling 386,000 miles per second  to travel in one year. (670,616,629 miles, 8760 hrs in a year )

The Andromeda galaxy is 2.5 million light years from Earth. It has an estimated trillion stars, more than twice the amount in the Milky Way.

And it is only one of over 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe! 

Put that in your coffee and drink it !

What kinds of intelligent life are out there?

If this is just a bit of inspiration even more is the mystery of the infinite and eternal One beyond all description, titles, names, and definitions. In a creation that never ceases to amaze, it is a nice perspective to start the day with over coffee and a bit of humble gratitude.
