I have two items to share this morning.
The first is the song "Breathe" by Fleurie. I came across this song served up as a recommendation compliments of YouTube, and have pretty much listened to it daily since.
The second is actually a book - Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson . You would think with all of the spiritual seeking I have done recently, that I wouldn't be inspired by a book about Astrophysics, but they kind of go hand in hand. I'm only about half way through and have a feeling I'm going to need to read this book twice in order to fully pick up all of its gems, but here are a few highlights so far:
"No, you can't build a time machine that will enable you to go back and kill (someone) before you were born - it violates causality laws. And without violating momentum laws, you cannot spontaneously levitate and hover above the ground, whether or not you are seated in a lotus position*
*You could, in principle, perform this stunt if you managed to let fourth a powerful and sustained exhaust of flatulence"
And my favorite so far:
"We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out -- and we have only just begun"
