Stream of Conciousness


As we stare up towards the heavens a thousand million stars gaze back at us, their shimmering light though not dazzling brings a sense of wonder to our eager minds.
Minds that since the dawn of time have sought to understand our place in this vast Cosmos.
How far we have come, we now stand at the dawn of another age, an age were the discoveries of the past seem to tremble in the knowledge that we are now discovering.
Wonders that the ordinary mind can hardly comprehend, and yet we accept them, seeking ever more to understand.
Are we as beings born of this Cosmic dance just waking to understand our rightful place or are still scraping at the surface of the wonders that still await.
Only time will tell, we who strive now to garner this knowledge for future generations can be proud at our efforts so far....but things need to be addressed, the future of our World depends on our ability to realise the finite nature of things....nothing lasts for ever its up to us to preserve what we can, our childrens children deserve to be given a world fit to live in.......hope fully we will realise that we are the stewards of this Planet and act accordingly
