How can we as humans begin to know how the Universe works? We claim to know the exact steps to manifest our desires. It’s like saying there’s only one type of fish in the sea. We’re only human yet we’ve turned the Universe into a multi billion dollar pyramid scheme. Spirituality is a hot commodity. You can dabble in it or go full out wearing robes, chanting cultural appropriation-esque chants and paying thousands for the spiritual retreat that’s the latest game-changer.
Stop for a minute and think about just how effing big the Universe is. Can you think of anything beyond our solar system? Galaxy? Keep going. We humans have only been able to come up with the Observable Universe, which is as far as we can see. There’s no telling what lies beyond what we can see.
All the Universe is seemingly good for is an ATM in the sky. We’re willing to empty our pockets for the promise of more money. Sound familiar? That’s because it’s been done before by those disgraced televangelists. Send me millions and you’ll enter heaven & be prosperous. Pay me thousands and I’ll show you how to manifest your materialistic fantasies. If you don’t, you’re wrong and the Universe is going to spank you for not obeying its secrets & laws.
When my son was born, everyone around me turned into an expert. I honestly didn’t know some days what to do. Then it hit me. The Universe told me to listen my gut. So I did. My gut said, you’ll figure out what’s best for you and your baby. So we did! I observed my son’s cries, eating and sleeping patterns, likes and dislikes. I figured out a routine that works for the both of us. That routine is specific to our needs. It’s not designed to work for someone else. It’s why I tell new mummies to a) don’t listen to anyone’s advice not even mine and b) listen to your baby.
The Universe is infinite. There are infinite ways to get what we want. How can we begin to understand exactly how the Universe works or where we stand in it and alongside it?
You’ve got to take this journey for yourself. Do learn from the mystics and sages. Your gut will tell you if what they’re saying is true for you. Take a little knowledge from them all and create your own opinions and insights. Do what works for you.
