To hear the audio file of this blog:
Do you believe we are all made up of stars? You know what I’m talking about. That theory where we all contain particles not found on this planet and so the idea is that it’s leftover from the big bang. We are not only made up of the universe, not only a part of the universe, but that collectively, we are the universe. Yea I know. That was a bit deep. But I recently heard a song that I haven’t heard in a while and it just hit me in a different way. I still feel as though life isn’t right for me anymore. Not in a dark way. It’s more like your favorite clothes that just don’t fit as perfectly as they once did and you can’t explain why. They are still your style. You still want to wear them. But they just don’t fit for some reason. Well, that’s how I’m feeling right now. Everything in my life is the same, seems like it’s all good, but something is just off. It’s obviously me and I’m not sure how to figure it out all out. That song, Lost Stars, I’m sure has a multitude of meanings, but for me, I’m hung up on the following lines right now:
“But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?…Who are we? Just a speck of dust within the galaxy?”
Could that be why things don’t feel right? I’m not the only one who feels this way. That’s for sure. Perhaps it’s because we are all lost stars trying to light up the dark. And what’s a star’s purpose if not to light up the dark? So when we aren’t lighting up the dark, not fulfilling our purpose, things are bound to feel off. And maybe all the wrong that happens in the world is due to us stumbling in the dark.
I know, rambling on doesn’t help. But sometimes it does. In what way are you trying to light up the dark? And if you’re trying to still figure it out, enjoy the song (and video) here.
