Have you sat in complete darkness and stared at the sky? To this day, I remember the moments of gazing at the Milky Way and the twinkling stars underneath the Australian night sky. At twenty years old, thesouthern hemisphere inspired my life and drove me to live a life outside of sex and alcohol.
Something magical happens when you sit under the stars. Things change and your mind evolves. You begin to understand the movement of life. The stars teach you that there is more to human existence that science and man can currently understand.
Arrogance, ignorance and the ego blinds us to what really matters in life. We focus on such minute details that we forget the bigger picture.
As a child, we used to drive into the park and watch the stars in dark fields. I am forever thankful that my parents gave me that experience.
Side Note: This 4th of July, I challenge you to immerse yourself into complete darkness and gaze into the sky above. I bet you won’t return home the same; plus, maybe you’ll find a deeper appreciation for what America stands for – freedom, liberty, life and innovation.
As always, inspired by the sun,
PS - Happy Fourth of July!
