Within our own minds, we are simply not able to comprehend the scale of the world to any degree. We cannot contemplate the size of an atom, the sheer size of the universe or even the facial features of all the people we have ever met. Therefore, we all have our own perceived understanding of the world around us, and everyone’s “world” is purely relative to them.
Within each persons “world”, everything is assigned a value relative to the creator. Generally speaking, Family, friends and loved ones constitute the highest value, followed by ones own passions and pursuits, ambition, material possessions etc. Of course, each individuals value system is specifically tailored to them, but generally speaking, loved ones are at the top of the list.
It is common knowledge that as individuals within the full scale of the universe, we are essentially meaningless, however as loved and valued people, we are central and key aspects of the worlds belonging to the people who love and value us.
