“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ― Albert Einstein
We live in a universe that is part of a multitude of multiverses. And we are a part of it all. We think it is outside of us, something intangible, something alien, something abstract and unlike us, but that is incorrect. The thing is that we still don’t see ourselves as one with everything. We think these finite bodies are everything, are real, are all that matter. We think that when they have worn out, we will crumble to the earth like so many cinders in a dying fire.
But we don’t die. While the flesh expires, there is that within us which keeps on keeping on. We change form. We become stars or other light-filled energies which go on and on and on, exploring the universe, and feeling free.
“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.” ― Rumi
See, we are expressions of the magnificence that is life. Everything is. As such, there is nothing that we are not a part of, and nothing that is not a part of us. It looks like we are separate beings plodding through time and space as little independent centers of activity. But at the level of transcendent, we are one entity that splintered into little pods of life in 3D-reality, maybe just for adventure’s sake.
You’re a winner, so do what you came here for
The secret weapon, isn’t secret anymore
You’re a driver, never passenger in life
And when you’re ready, you won’t have to try ’cause
You are the Universe
And there ain’t nothin’ you can’t do
If you conceive it, you can achieve it
That’s why, I believe in you, yes I do
You Are the Universe – Brand New Heavies
Whatever reason you came, you came as a powerful being on a mission from Life! It’s time to start seeing yourself as you truly are. Not only do you have a lot of power packed inside you, you are that power expressed on a smaller scale. Created in the image of love and intelligence, there “ain’t nothing you can’t do.” As one with the universe, one with all life, you got big boots to fill.
We are shifting into a new paradigm. We are evolving. To be able to sustain oneself in that coming new consciousness you have to be able to see yourself as you really are, as you were created. There are worlds in you waiting to be explored. There is a whole universe seeking to be expressed. Realize your oneness with it and be part of the universe expressing harmony, becoming balance, living peace, sharing love.
You are the universe.
