The Splendor of Being

“If you could see the Earth illuminated when you were in a place as dark as night, it would look to you more splendid than the moon.” –Galileo Galilei

To see our Mother Earth in her quintessence in the Milky Way reminds us that all living beings potentially bear her splendor.  Only as each of us, as human beings and fellow creatures of the biosphere, acting  compassionately, reflecting deep understanding and thought can our splendor really shine.
