The Dilemma of eternity – Do we matter?

We are but a speck in eternity. Before us were our parents, grandparents, ancestors, dinosaurs, some micro-organism & the big bang. Ahead of us are our children, their children, alien invasion & apocalypse. Life existed before us & will go on after us. We are but a speck in eternity. Does anything we do even matter?

Everything before us did their bit to make us possible – our parents, grandparents, ancestors, dinosaurs, some micro-organism & the big bang. Our life in fact started with each of them and extends back to the big bang. Each of our actions now also determine how the timeline ahead of us shapes itself. Therefore, our life also extends forward to the end of time.  Our life is actually the entire timeline – it is eternity. Every action we take today will have repercussions on that entire timeline of life. We are eternity. Everything we do matters.
