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.

Flowers reaching for the sky

The Challenge

On Saturday, I was challenged by MarieMathilda to take on the ‘Three Day Quote Challenge’. As this is one of those fun things that you can do all sorts of things with, I am happy and excited to accept the challenge.

The rules of this challenge are simple:

  1. Post three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

Before I post my selection for quote of the day, I would love to nominate:

  1. Fleeting Muse
  2. Views from the Edge
  3. JustBlueDutch

Have fun with the quote and the challenge, and thanks again to MarieMathilda for the nomination!

The Quote

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.”
― Gautama Buddha, Sayings of Buddha

This quote speaks to me on many levels, from being in the present at all times to truly see the flower, to allowing ourselves to be one with the universe.

What do you take away from this quote?
