There’s something about the cosmic perspective, which for some people is enlightening and for other people it’s terrifying. For those who are terrified by it, they’re here on earth and they have a certain self-identity, and then they learn that earth is tiny and we’re in this void of interplanetary space and then there’s a star that we call the Sun and that’s kind of average and there’s a hundred billion other stars in a galaxy. And our galaxy, the Milky Way, is one of 50 or 100 billion other galaxies in the universe. And with every step, every window that modern astrophysics has opened to our mind, the person who wants to feel like they’re the center of everything ends up shrinking. And for some people they might even find it depressing, I assert that if you were depressed after learning and being exposed to the perspective, you started your day with an unjustifiably large ego. You thought more highly of yourself than in fact the circumstances deserved.

So here’s what you do: You say, ‘I have no ego at all.’ Let’s start that way. ‘I have no ego, no cause to puff myself up.’

"In harmony with the cosmic sea, true love needs no company."

From the pages of If Dogs Run Free.

You are still young, free. Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late.

Jhumpa Lahiri

One day it will be too late to see the skies, the sunsets, the many colors of the rising of the sun, the calm and peace, and wonderful people from other parts of the world.

Good night.

No one deserves to be sad. I wish you all a wonderful life.

No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

You do not travel if you are afraid of the unknown. You travel for the unknown that reveals you within yourself.

Getting lost is not a waste of time. To travel is to evolve.

*sees the moon and a perfect spot at the university*
*sets up camera*
*clicks*
*runs*
Most of the time, it’s me taking pictures of me.

This is through a mirror from Egypt, so my selfie defeats yours. :)

I’m sorry I’m not sorry that most of my posts are sunset photos. This is, again, the view from Bicol University.
