  1. I don’t meditate very much, but once I was at a beach in Nova Scotia watching the sun set. There was a long point of land sticking out into the ocean which provided a reference. I was trying to learn to meditate and was watching to ocean, the land, and the setting sun. I could see and feel, for just a little, the rotation of the earth. It affected me deeply, somewhat like what you write about. These days, on a few of the times I am feeling too self important I go out to visit our local observatory and see the faint smudges of galaxies and consider those galaxies have as many stars as our home galaxy (“the Milky Way”, and consider whether the universe will miss our earth, if we mindlessly destroy it.
