How big is our planet? Mind blowing comparison!

We are aware that our universe is beyond enormous in size but truly we do not know how big it really is.

We know that the earth is nothing but a speck of a rock in comparison to the rest of the universe, a particle of dust floating in a huge sky.

So, I was thinking about size and the universe and I was wondering….
Imagine there was life on more earth like planets, not just in our galaxy but in other galaxies.

Could there be life out there that are like giants compared to humans – due to the environment and size of the sun, planets etc? What if there are galaxies with huge stars, huge planet and moon with life? Would this life also develop to be a huge species that would make us look tiny?

What about if there are stars a lot smaller than ours out there? Could there be species that are tiny?
After all, in the scheme of things – we are tiny, and look how small life can get, all you need to do it look through a microscope and you can see life, compare bacteria to the mass of the universe and it is a truly amazing thing that so much can being happening in such a small minute way.

If our earth is abundant with life, even though we are a mere speck in a massive universe, could there be places where life could be even smaller or bigger in comparison to our own environment?

If we compare Earth’s size with that of some of the most important celestial bodies we have discovered so far, it makes most of us think that we’re nothing but ants swarming around in our little ant nest.

To show you that, let’s look at the size of our Earth compared to that of some of the most famous planets and stars that we know of:

How to deal with criminality

I have found this on tumblr and it touched me so deeply I have to share it here.

I absolutely love this :’)

I wish this happened in our society.

In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them. 

For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.

The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness. 

But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.

The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.

They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”

Shikoba Nabajyotisaikia!

NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”

Fun side of spirituality

One of the common misunderstandings in the spiritual community is that spiritual people have to be serious. We have an image in our minds that a spiritual person is a bearded wise looking old man that has gone through lot in life.

We think that to be a true spiritual person we have to be vegetarian, we have to dress in a certain way, we have to talk in a certain way…

I’m going to tell you something. I consider myself to be a spiritual person. I’m now 19 years old and I have been interested in spirituality since I can remember. I always wanted to know the answers to the deep lives questions like “What is the meaning of life and existence itself? Is there a God? Are we alone in the universe?”… I have studied many philosophies and religions, but I have found the answers in the new age movement. I love the new age movement because it connects the ideas from many ancient practices, religions, science and new theories. Together it makes a wonderful mixture.

If I have learned something throughout the years of following many spiritual teachers, I’ve learned that the most important thing is to follow your excitement. If you are living your highest joy or excitement, you are being your natural self.  In that state you can effortlessly attract the things you need. So to put this spiritual truth even in even more simple words – the purpose of life is to have fun!

So who said that spiritual people have to be serious? I think its the contrary! In fact, the most spiritual people I know are also the funniest people I know. With great spiritual wisdom comes childlike innocence and playfulness. Wise people don’t take life too seriously. They don’t forget to have fun.

Spirituality is best practiced with humility and playfulness, like kids in a sandbox exploring the boundaries of imagination and possibility. Fun is a pathway to enlightenment, by lightening your anxiety, loosening your attachments and letting go of the need to be right.

I think that the main reason why not so many young people in my age are attracted to spirituality is that it seems boring to them. Young people just want to have fun. And since the stereotype is that spirituality is serous and deep, it doesn’t seem to be attractive to them. I agree that religious people tent to be serious, but in this article I’m talking about the new age type of spirituality.

I am young, I am interested in spirituality and I also enjoy having fun. I don’t think these two things contradict each other. I like parties, I like listening and dancing to modern music, I like doing random weird stuff and be crazy. And I don’t think it makes me a less spiritual person. When I enjoy it, it cant be wrong.

So I encourage you to have fun! Do whatever feels good to you at any given moment and stop caring what other people may say about you. This is your life, so make it amazing!

The Life Of A Catalyst

Andey Fellowes

There are those of us who have incarnated here on Earth, who carry a certain frequency. This frequency has such strength that it generates a response within those who are exposed to it that brings about a shift of awareness and thus a large change. Some aren’t ready for this change, some aren’t ready for this awareness of themselves and so they close off, resort to child-like behaviour or even go on the offensive and get outwardly destructive. And some, who are ready, flock to this vibration like a moth to a flame knowing, on a molecular level and deeper, that exposure to this sort of frequency will mean the shedding of the old and the experience of new.

There are many names for this vibration and those who carry it. The most apt, I’ve heard is the ‘Catalyst’ energy. This Catalyst energy is a vibration which I…

What To Remember When You Don’t Know What You’re Doing With Your Life

Thought Catalog

LookcatalogLookcatalog

I often find myself at 4 am, unable to sleep. It’s not that I’m not tired, because I’m exhausted; I just can’t turn my mind off. Thoughts relentlessly pour in, and I’m left thinking of ridiculous things like embarrassing situations that happened to me 7 years ago and having an existential crisis over how I have no clue what I’m doing with my life. I’m fighting these thoughts, trying to clear my mind, pushing every thought out and focusing on silence. Then my heart starts speeding up and I have to sit up because my breathing’s shallowed. My lungs are gasping for air and my thoughts are racing at speeds I can barely keep up with.

I’ve struggled through 4 years of university, fighting off anxiety and panic attacks over what I was going to do with my life (as if we’re actually supposed to know the answer to…
