Beautiful words from the physicist Dr. Carlos Rovelli. He goes on to say that we generally understand a universe with things - but we would be better to try and understand a universe with happenings.
It's all a matter of perspective. A stone is a happening if you look at it over a billion years.
You are not a thing. You are a happening. You are interacting with other happenings and other happenings are interacting with all of us.
Of course, I can't help but be reminded of an ancient holy book who described the divine of the universe as I am... or I am happening.
Don't just be today. Happen.
