Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires; but what foundation did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him. Napoleon BonaparteI have spent a lifetime attempting to pummel my world into shape. To beat into submission errant thoughts that would keep me from attaining everything I wanted in life.
And in my brute force attack of having the life I wanted, I lost the very thing I was searching for. Inner peace.
The universe doesn't care. It is.
The universe is everything and all. It resonates at the highest frequency, eternal. Ever-lasting.
It's me, the mortal, emanator of the negative vibration, spelling out the myths of my lack on this material plane, that holds me back from bliss, that keeps me falling into dismay, that keeps me stepping out into discord.
The universe doesn't care. It just is.
And in its 'just thereness' the universe waits for no man, but is there for all to attain the harmonic vibration that puts us on a different plane, that puts us in sync with the universe -- we only have to care enough to not care about what's going on on this earthly plane, to get there.
So often, we step through life bemoaning its unfairness, deriding its inability to 'get in line', to turn up for us in a way other than the way it's turning up.
Reality is, the universe doesn't care how we turn up. It is always filled with all we want, all we need, all we desire -- it's waiting (or not) for us to awaken to the truth of our divinity. The universe is always going on about its business. It doesn't care if we awaken to its beauty, or not, it simply is being the Divine essence of all things beautiful filled with limitless possibility of life eternal, life divinely beyond the earthly realm of our imaginings.
When I let go of caring about what other's think, about the unfairness of the world, about the trials and tribulations of my daily existence, and tune into the divine essence of my being, I align myself with the wonders of the world around me. In my alignment, life takes on a rosy hue never before realized by me.
It isn't about material possessions or having the biggest title ever imagined. It is about inner peace that sees the beauty in this moment, living it up for all I'm worth without measuring what's missing against the scale of all that I've achieved, or not.
The universe doesn't care if I am Chief Pooh-bah of all things important, or Grunt Underdog of all things irrelevant. The universe is -- it's up to me to care enough about me to let go of striving to have it all 'out there' when all I ever need is here, inside of me, awaiting to awaken to the brilliance of my being at peace with who I am. In my acceptance of who I am is the gift of love for all of me in this moment. In love, I awaken to the power to create the world of my dreams.
The universe is. My awakening to its magnificence is up to me.
The question is: Are you willing to let go of what you think, or what other's think of you, to be all you are in this moment of your existence? Can you let go of measuring your world against all that is wrong, or all that you lack to fall in love with your life today exactly the way it is?
