#62 The Miracle of Life

About 13.8 billion years ago, the Big Bang took place. The Big Bang Theory is science’s way of explaining how all creation started through mathematical models and reasoning.

Who really knows for sure but my spiritual self sees something transformative when trying to understand the infinite.

About 360,000 years after the Big Bang, the extremely hot universe cooled down and electrons started merging with nuclei creating stars which after millions of years would explode, creating more stars, planets, moons, asteroids, meteors, and everything we refer to as life today.

The miracle of life

Everything that is in my experience is a part of the universe. If I’m made from star particles, am I not also part of this infinite light source?

We have more cells in this body than all the stars in our Milky Way Galaxy. We have the ability to cultivate, cook, and eat food that nature gives freely. We can love, cry, and feel so many emotions.

We can witness electricity but where does that current come from if you were to trace it back to its source? If you were to trace back an apple tree to its seedling or to its minerals, what would you find?

I used to rack my brain to find answers but the fact that I am here writing this, breathing, walking, is a miracle. I don’t have a wanting to see the supernatural because it is already here. It’s you and me and everything in our presence.

An ovum from your mother and a sperm cell from your father was the fuse needed to create a zygote which eventually became you.

I hope you take time today and understand how amazing you are and everything that is around you.

There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.’” -Albert Einstein

With Love,

Anand Swamy
