When dressing in the morning, I’ve hurriedly put my shirt on backwards, getting a good laugh at myself a few hours later when I finally notice. Little mistake. I’ve also invested hard earned money in lousy stocks. Big mistake. Moreover, there are times when I get caught up in blaming someone or something for a situation that is obviously substandard, or worse, and think my way of fixing the problem is the only way. Big fat mistake. Know the greater.
From 21st Century Science and Health, “Science shows that appearances are often mistaken, leading to false judgments and conclusions. To correct the mistake, we follow the simple rule that the greater controls the lesser. For example; the clearer view that the infinite controls the finite has brought to light new discoveries. The idea of infinity discounted the mistake of a ‘static universe.’ Although indistinguishable to the temporal senses, the universe is not fixed, but expanding and contracting. Furthermore, the rate of expansion is greater than the contracting and the cosmos is moving away with space, not even through space. The universe exemplifies the infinite. There is no edge to the universe. From anywhere in the universe, it appears as though it is the center of an ever-expanding heaven. Even our solar system, orbiting in the outer edge of a spiral galaxy, the Milky Way, is indefinitely expanding and rotating in its own unique path.”
