Time spirals, micro-animals, and the Inner Why
“We are dust in the wind, and yet we are here.”
This is the stuff from the internet that fills me with wonder and makes me feel more human — in a good way.
This graphic shows in a spiral a summary of notable events from the Big Bang to the present day. Every billion years (Ga) is represented in 90 degrees of rotation of the spiral.
WE ARE DUST IN THE WIND, AND YET WE ARE HERE
"I think about myself as dust in the wind, and I’m going to be here just for a hot second, that’s about it. When you think about the vastness of the universe in which we dwell, we are dust in the wind, and yet we are here." — Carrie Mae Weems
ANCIENT MICRO-ANIMAL WALKING
FEAR IS ONLY AS STRONG AS YOUR AVOIDANCE OF IT
Listen to your fear with a wise ear. What are you afraid of in life? What are you afraid of in yourself? You must challenge fear and ask it what it means to say. As you go into the fear with eyes open, heart open and courage flowing freely, you will see that fear is only an empty room. Fear is only as strong as your avoidance of it. The greater your reluctance to see the fear, to accept it and embrace it, the more power you allow it. — Emmanuel's Book by Pat Rodegast

BETTER HABITS: THE INNER WHY TECHNIQUE
How to do it:
When you notice a sudden change in your emotional state (e.g., you start becoming anxious, sad, frustrated, or angry), immediately give yourself the best quick explanation you can for WHY you think that change in your emotions just occurred. The sooner you can do it after the emotional change, the better. — Spencer Greenberg
