“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.” -Eckhart Tolle
I can’t really use capitals for emphasis on the sign but I figure the point will be gotten. Point is, you are a part of your environment both on scales small and large (though it would be a bit weird to say that you are a part of your couch). The same things that make up the stars make up you and, from what I understand, that’s where the bits and pieces came from.
