When you are out there in it. The hush. Past that sound your ears make. When the utter silence and stillness hits you and you realize how important it is that you came here. How glad you are that you made it all the way out. What a feeling. And while you may be here for a limited time, this peace of mind is always here. When you look up at the sea of stars and you become consumed by its vastness. The feeling of your own irrelevance when taking into account that everything around you for miles hasn't changed much in hundreds of years. Personal disputes and materialistic desires seem insignificant and lowly. It makes you never want to go back. But this feeling is not hard to find. The wealth is available endlessly if you are willing to work for it. It is worth sacrificing a few comforts to hear the message.
