The universe is all we see around us. The universe is where we live. The universe is big and bold and beautiful. The universe is all this and the universe is inside you. You are the universe.
When we look inside and see the same magic of the universe but within us, we can find our peace, our silence, our home. It’s not easy, I understand that but who said life was going to be?
Our universe is a vast array of wild, passion, calm, silence, fire, air, earth, water, breath and like you it began from a small moment in time where a miracle took place. If this is the outside, why I ask myself, can this also not be inside you, me, us? “There’s none so blind….” and we prove this every day giving out and therefore giving into negativity; asking for more but never giving it; crying for peace when we don’t even accept it within ourselves.
You. That beautiful, miraculous, loving, intelligent, questioning, giving person is everything but only when you accept that all you are is all you need to be. Spending so many years trying to be more and eventually finding my peace when I just looked inside and accepted who I was and was good enough, made me see how ridiculous I had been searching, scrabbling around in the dust, wandering like a nomad searching for the perfect home, when it was right wherever I was.
Possibility. Look up to the skies on a clear night and you can see for many, many miles but what is beyond? We know a little from those who have ventured to the edge of our world but the universe is way, way more expansive than that and what’s there? Possibility. That is what there. What drove us as human beings to build rockets that propelled us into a realm we had no knowledge of? Possibility. What drives people every day to step back from their life and see what else is there? Possibility. There is no reason to doubt what you can achieve, everything can be done if you believe.
Spend a little time today just sat somewhere quiet, somewhere that is your space, somewhere comfortable and close your eyes. Breathe. Be aware of your body, how you are sat or lay, how you feel, your heartbeat, your breath. Breathe. Take a quick peak at the universe within you and really feel what it’s like to live in there. Let the external universe go and stay within. Breathe. Slow down. Rest. Stay awhile with the person you are and see who’s there. You may not recognise them but even if it’s a while since you spent time with yourself, you will find something familiar so take comfort from them.
The universe is an amazing place and full of magnificent places to explore but I promise that when you visit your inner universe you will find yourself in awe at who you already are and be excited by the prospect of where you can go next. Make life a journey and be the explorer. Explore you! Like the universe around us YOU ARE AMAZING!
