Everything under the sun is made up of a mass of very very tiny elements such as tree rings, skin cells, and so on. And those tiny tiny bits gather round and build up this magnificently vast universe. And they keep working on and on and on so as to keep the universe as it is, or in order to increase its vastness. But they cannot be seen all the time. Strength is a pile of sufferings and agonies. Achievement is a fruit of efforts and struggles. Desire for peace is a cry of sorrow for humans hating and hurting each other. Every beautiful thing does not necessarily consist of beauties. Tiny, trifle and useless pieces gather and build up something very very essencial.
