Have you ever given "we are made of stardust" a deep thought? It's not just a romantic, beautiful sentence. Actually it's very true. We are Stardust. We come from far away, we are infinite, we cannot actually die. We will always be.
We will always be stardust. Our atoms have seen it all. We are all connected infinitely.
We are small but yet we are huge. We are a miracle, miracles are real. Not only are we connected to every human soul out there, we are connected to animals and plants just as much. Let's be mindful. Together we are one. We depend on everything this planet provides us with. Take one part away and we cannot be in human form no longer. We are incredible beings but only as long as we don't take advantage of our power. We have to spread compassion and love. This is the truest key to happiness and a healthy planet. Let's all try to be more aware. We are what we eat, we are what we think we are what we say. Let it be love, let it be stardust ♡
