The earth moves around the sun at 30 kilometers per second.
That’s 67,000 miles per hour.
The earth rotates on its axis at 1600 kilometers per hour
(1000 miles per hour for Americans)
That is fast. Very fast,.
But It Feels like we are standing still.
The reason is that we are moving at a constant speed
And would only feel it if the rate accelerated or decelerated.
Life is like that as well.
It seems stuck, standing still and going nowhere.
Nothing seems to be moving.
But that is because you don’t have the perspective of time and distance,
And it isn’t going faster or slowing down.
Sometimes your life is advancing great distances,
While you seem to be standing still.
Sometimes you feel you are going nowhere,
When you just can’t see where you are going
And, if you preserve, don’t lose faith, and keep working.
In that very stillness you may go farther than you ever dreamed
Perhaps faster than you ever dreamed.
Because you are made of earth
From the stuff of stars
And cannot be stopped.
Just know that you are still moving.
