“Things are as they are. Looking out into the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.”

– Alan Watts

This is gold.

When have you ever looked up into the sky and thought, “Eh. Sure, it’s pretty, but it’d be much prettier if that cluster of stars was over there…” Um, that would be never. What is, is.

Maybe we should spend more time treating our lives like we treat the stars.
