I love being by myself.
Sometimes, I feel alone, which isn’t nearly as much fun.
In those moments, I hear a voice urging me to question the thought.
Is it true that I am alone?
It doesn’t feel true. It feels as if there is something always with me.
“Remember,” the voice says. “Remember what you are.”
This is a story to help us remember.
Once a long, long time ago, there was a Beginning.
Protons and electrons danced, becoming hydrogen.
The gravity of dark matter drew these molecules into an intimate embrace, forming stars.
These stars burned themselves to exhaustion, collapsed inward, and exploded, seeding the universe with the elements of life.
These seeds came together into new celestial bodies: clouds of gas, nebula, stars, planets, asteroids, comets and moons.
The death of stars opens the portal for life.
You are made of stardust.
The Universe lives within you.
