Chrissy and I were talking last night about the deep, abiding peace that comes from the understanding that every single thing that happens - from the last thought you had, to the thing that happened at work today that you didn't intend on happening, to the way that person hurt your feelings recently, to wars in the Middle East and new stars forming in distant corners of the galaxy - all had to happen exactly, EXACTLY as they did. The laws of physics, operating at the level of sub-atomic particle-waves, are responsible for everything that happens. EVERYTHING. It's all as it has to be. The universe is unfolding according to the rules. That's all. There's nothing you or anyone else can do about it except watch, play and be amazed that we are here to witness it/us/me unfolding.
Oh and listen to the latest episode of RadioLab "Speed". In Segment #2 they talk about how we can never, EVER experience things in the moment. Everything is in the past by the time we cognize it. Think about that for a while. http://www.radiolab.org/2013/feb/05/
