This is Galaxy Cluster Abell 1689.  Each glowing orb visible here is a giant elliptical galaxy with more than a thousand billion stars. The mass of this cluster is so great that it acts as a colossal gravitational lens, bending light from galaxies behind it into distorted shapes.  Within this image there could be as many as one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) planets and moons.  What events are happening in this tiny patch of sky?  Far, far more than we can ever imagine…
This whole existence is in love: these trees are moving tremendously in love; these stars, these rivers rushing towards the ocean, are rushing towards a love-affair where they can meet and merge. Watch, and you will find everywhere the shadow of love, the thrill, the excitement, the ecstasy of love. Whatsoever the form, if you look deeply, you will always find something throbbing at the center which cannot be anything other than love.

A human being is a part of the whole called by us “the universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical illusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening the circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
The universe is a self-organizing, intelligent, creative, trial-and-error learning, participatory, interactive, non-locally interconnected and evolving system.

ARP 188 The Tadpole Galaxy by Steven Marx
Regarding yourself as merely a ‘person’ is an insult to the unlimited consciousness that you are.
We do not “come into” this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean “waves,” the universe “peoples.” Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe.
