From A Year of 100-Word Thoughts

Cosmic Ingrate 


Whether observing the most grandiose events in the history of the universe or watching a bug crawl across a leaf, you forget the most remarkable thing of all, your own consciousness. Whatever your experiences, it is what makes them possible, makes your world possible, you possible. Your consciousness is the God of your reality. So if you lament your experiences, judge them inferior to those of others, it’s only because you’ve desecrated your consciousness. Instead of your God, the creator and sustainer of you and your world, you’ve treated it like your personal entertainment center, and you aren’t easily entertained.
