The Center of the Universe
“According to the ancient Egyptians, the purpose of our lives is to preserve order in the cosmos. And we do this by preserving order within ourselves. Each one of us is- quite literally, according to modern science-the center of the universe.”- Marianne Williamson/ Everyday Grace
Science has proven we are who and what we think we are, and if we think Godlike thoughts and well of others, this is what will be returned to us. Theology professes God is not a distant character, mighty on a throne, but instead a factor of ourselves. God lives in our hearts, in our daily lives, in our routines and any attempt to create distance between ourselves and God is what makes us out of sorts, angry, hostile and ungrounded.
Imagine you were convinced, as the ancient Egyptians were, that you had the power to set the universe day-to-day. You held the ability to wind the clock and set the time, energy, spirit and integrity of the entire world. How would that job change your daily attitude?
It’s a huge responsibility this being in charge of ourselves and ultimately the universe. It’s a monumental task to be sure requiring a revolution in the way we think, act, do and dream.
Just for today, as an cosmic experiment, set the pace for the universe. Recognize you are a child of God, no less than the trees and the stars you have a right to be right here, right now. And as a child of the universe, you have responsibilities and obligations to serve, to be a beacon of hope, light, love and energy to your fellow-man.
The clock is ticking and you’re in charge. Set the world on a course of tranquility by starting with yourself.
