While helping some poor folks out in a rural area one evening, i saw something like that, even more as i recall. The entire sky was lit up with a firmament of stars; moreover there were what looked like planets which had appeared near enough one imagined it was possible to reach up and touch them. Alas i did not have any appropriate camera to take a snap for posterity or to share with you.

So when we are down or whenever we may feel despondent about anything in our daily lives on earth, imagine that magnificent sight of the starry sky above, and be lifted in the heart to carry on another day.

The best are often the simplest. The simplest are often hidden by too much distraction and noise which in turn make us forget where we are in this big universe whose size makes our travails seem small by comparison but yet yield an answer waiting for its question.

And sometimes when we are moody or surly, let us ask ourselves which planet's magnetic force is affecting the ions in our body. That possibility will put things in perspective because our planet will rotate from the line of axis of the planet concerned. Things will change again.....
