You’re part of the universe

The Freeman

Just like the classic thought that the world is flat, many of us still think that the universe is out there. The comedian, Jim Carrey, reminds us that we are all part of the universe. Every event in nature, in time, or in the season has a significant relationship to our own existence. Therefore, we better learn how to read the events of time, place, the natural laws, laws of nature, and the eternal law that govern us. We can be like a poet, a writer, a musician, an artist, or those creative souls who observe everything around and everything within and see things what most eyes can’t see. They see not only the present life but also the kind of life coming for them. The moon, the stars, the sun, and the sky, the breeze of wind, the trees, or the flowing river are easy to read to get inspiration despite everything that is not good to accept. However, most people only observe the imperfections of others as well as the negative things that happen to them. They can’t hear how nature speaks to them, how the sun smiles at them, how the mountains give them courage, how the wind offers hope, or how the rain plays with them.

If you want to see the first light ahead of others, you have to wake up early. You got to go up a little higher so that you will see everything that is beautiful, everything that you deserve to reach. See that light? It’s because you choose to get up early and you choose to sacrifice even if the bed calls you. Some people see the light so late in the afternoon. Some people see the light, different from how you see it when you were in the mountain. Some people won't care how the sun looks like early in the morning because they enjoy the shadows down there. In life would you prefer to see the shadows or the light that caused the shadows? If this means literal to you then we got a little problem.

You are part of the universe. Look at the sun that keeps rising despite a cloudy or a stormy day. Imagine the universe that continually expanding. What do they mean to you? If they are all moving and changing, so must you. Look at the trees around they grow and bear fruits, so must you. Look at the fish in a flowing river; it can swim against the current, so must you. Think and imagine them. How do these things mean to you? If you're choice limits you from growing and conquering your dreams then don’t destroy your choice, don’t destroy your freedom. Read the right books or the right information for your brain. Be guided by what other successful people ahead of us are telling most especially by that someone who means so much to our faith.

It’s true our mind is designed not to be always happy. The world too is not designed to be all flowers and butterflies. It is designed to survive itself with others through the laws that govern them. Our minds too are designed to survive with the help of others. Happiness is just part of it, not the whole thing. Therefore, be part of the universe. Do what you are designed to do. Move with harmony.
