Zooming in and out of the universe

When we step back a lot, intellectualize, and abstract away everything, we imagine a universe like this. 

This can make us feel like a meaningless speck in space and time. But the reality is that the universe is also this - 

Your family, friends, pets, plants, coworkers, and neighbors are all parts of the universe too. You and all your experiences, thoughts, and feelings - are the universe too. Each of us is a little universe, and we are vibing with each other. 

Zooming out gives us a wide perspective and frees us from pettiness. Zooming in and being in the present is how you live a little.
