Weight

In our modern and overly connected yet disconnected times we forget the weight of the world we rest on. 

The lava filled rock hanging in the biggest blackest expanse of 'nothingness' you could ever imagine.  

That fact is a pillar of our existence yet we push it far from our minds. We move on to less formidable facts to ease our weary mind of an unexplainable mystery. 

It is the rushing away from this mystery that leads us to emotional turmoil, bad habits, broken relationships and dysfunction.

It is this level of disconnection that demands religions to help explain. Black and white thinking to sure up. Symbols of power to soothe. 

If we chose to connect and reconnect to the mystery that surrounds there would be no Trump, demilitarised zone, Catholic Church abuses or ISIL.
