The reason why the universe is eternal is that it does not live for itself; it gives life to others as it transforms. ~ Lao Tzu
Did you ever stop to think that maybe the universe has a bigger plan for you than you have for yourself? I know I heard Oprah once, talking about how she used to go to sleep at night, asking God, the Universe, the Source, or however you choose to call this invisible force that created everything, to guide her and to show her the way, to show her why is she here, what is her purpose in life, in order for her to move in that direction successfully.
Well, we all know who Oprah is, and I would say she knew how to ask the right questions, and as a result, she managed to change so many lives through her work. But I am not here to talk about Oprah, but to make you understand that life will pay whatever price we ask of it, and if what you ask for will benefit the whole world, you will surely receive it.
The Universe Has Bigger Plans For You
It never happened to you to make plans for the future, to dream about how your life would look like, to have a clear mental picture of how everything would look like, and all of a sudden, a person entered your life, or maybe something unexpected happened, you read a book, you heard something, etc., and all of your beliefs, all of your plans, all of your hopes and expectations were no longer that interesting to you. You realized that there is more to life than what you previously thought.
Many of us plan ahead, imagining how our whole lives would look like, wanting to have a well paid job, a nice car, a nice house, nice things, lots of money so we can buy all kind of things that we don’t need, to travel, to raise a beautiful and healthy family, to have a dog, a cat, etc., and other things that we believe will make our lives happier, and we rarely or never, stop to wonder if there is more to life than this.
If you think about it, when we imagine life this way, we only think about our own personal needs and desires, and there is a lot of ME involved, a lot of self, a lot of egos, but what if we leave the self behind? What if there would be no self-involved, how would you choose to live your life then, what would be the things that would really bring meaning and purpose into your life? Can you think of anything? Can you give up your own self in order to discover something new, something else, a brand new world?
Can you leave yourself behind in order for you to discover an incredible world waiting that’s waiting to be discovered by you, by all of us, a world of infinite possibilities, the world where there are no limits, no boundaries, and no fears?
What if this is the reason why we are all here on this planet? What if having lots of money, expensive stuff, and all the many things that money can buy aren’t the answer to why we’re all here? What if there is more to life than this, and what if we are all capable of accomplishing incredible things, things that we never dreamed possible, things that will have the power to transform ourselves and the world around us? What if the universe wants you to open your eyes, to really open your eyes, and for the first time, to see the world as it really is, limitless.
What if we are all part of something bigger, and each and every one of us represents a piece of a puzzle, and in order to understand what this puzzle is all about, we have to work together, we have to discover who we really are and give ourselves to the world, and by doing so, to receive the world.
Do you think this is possible? Do you think you can open your eyes and really start living life as it was meant to be lived? Do you think it’s possible for you to wake up from this illusion, this fantasy you’ve been living for so long? Would you want to do it? Do you think you have the courage to do it?
