Finding Your Place in the Universe

Universal connections

In today’s WordPress Daily Post Prompt the theme of Finding Your Place, I may have found a place.  Specifically, when I think about where I have found my place, it comes down to recognizing that my place is the Universe.

Wait a minute, you say, that is the same place that all of us are in!  True, but when you think of your place, where you have found yourself, what do you list.  Many among us will list a town or region, or a country, usually with some amount of patriotic fervor.  Some will recognize that their interest has extended beyond this and that our stewardship of the planet Earth is critical to humanity’s long-term viability.

Universal Existence

In my journey around the Sun, I have had the luxury to see various parts of the world and their cultures, and make the decision to settle in the United States.  As I have learned more and explored both this planet and what lies beyond, I have come to realize that the Universe is the one inescapable common location, in which we find ourselves.

The Universe is full of energies, which flow throughout; as one explores these energies and attunes themselves with them, there may be an opening of channels.  These channels enable us to be one with Nature, and connect with one another in a truly positive fashion; these connections are filled with positive energy, which lift us along the daily path, wherever that path may lead us.  Meditation creates the space in our mind to let these energies reach us; this is the path that I followed to make this connection with the Universe and where I found my true place.

I look forward to hearing where you find your place.

Transcend Bull at Seven

Bull at Seven.

Time is ever fleeting for most of us, as we rush from moment to moment, only to forget to take in those moments that will never be again.  We complain when something slows us down, be it obstacle, that slow driver in front of us, the rotten weather.  We never have enough time to do everything that we must get done; we track every moment that we lose waiting for this or that.  Check your watch to see how long it took to read this paragraph.  Isn’t it over yet?  What’s the point of all this writing?

The bull moose doesn’t have a watch, he doesn’t mind the weather, he rushes not to the next moment; he has transcended the whip and the rope.

Hope you enjoy!!
