Matter of perspective

Austin Kleon spoke of the way looking at pictures of the moon helps him keep perspective, as Jerry Seinfeld does of Hubble.

Looking up at space can give us a sense of how small we are, how nothing. And nothing is important, too. Vital, even:

We can see that space is not a stable, solid thing, that there are actually different types of nothing.

In fact, even over long distances, small nothings or tiny somethings can have big impacts on us, too.
How is nothing related to emptiness, the quality of seeing the nothing in everything (or everything in nothing)?

How does this larger perspective make you feel – insignificant? Or is it an ease?
