Universe is infinite even in the smallest of its creation. Everything is in harmony when it is in alignment with universal laws and structure. But what happens when this alignment breaks…
One day my daughter asked “Baba, there’s earth and then there’s space, so what’s above space?” Now, that’s an innocent yet an intriguing question. Of course, I answered her that space is infinite. However, this question triggered in me, a chain of thoughts.
Universe, is so true to its nature – infinite and yet so humble! It has nothing to prove, it encompasses everything but still has no need to be recognized, neither does it seek any importance. It just keeps going about doing it’s work in complete harmony and synchronicity. The sun shines, the earth moves, the wind flows, the stars twinkle, they just simply remain aligned to the universal laws and structure. Imagine the havoc if this alignment breaks. Even after being ever expansive, entire universe just remains aligned. Why? Because it stays true to its nature.
One can experience the same even in the microcosm. Try to count between 0 and 1. You can spend multiple lifetimes and still you will keep counting. Just think once; all the technological advancements made so far, every single discovery or invention, so much of expansion in knowledge, trillions of dollars of global economy, the list goes on and on but still, the world falls short from 0 to 1. We are still somewhere in between. There is a limitless field just between 0 and 1 but still the universe remains true to its nature – humble, infinite and in tune in with the universal laws.
Humans, on the other hand are interesting! We are a case study – ‘What happens when something lacks alignment’. Humans vary. We seek comfort in feeling that we know a lot.
So, what do we do when we realize we can’t count between 0 and 1? We ASSUME. Let’s round off the decimals and move ahead! An act of convenience just to camouflage our limitations. Such is the need to control that we tend to assume a lot of things in life. Assumption causes JUDGMENTS and ILLUSIONS.
These aspects create variations and we deviate from the infinity of this universe, we become very limited. This causes a lack of alignment and hence leads to pain, ego, complaints and needs. All of this just to cover up a deep lie that we keep telling ourselves –we know it all, we can control or that, we are too important. The reality however is, that we can’t count between 0 and 1. You see, it is difficult to accept that we are absolutely inconsequential in the entire scheme of things, a speck of dust!
However, being a part of this all encompassing universe even we have the same potential inside us, but, for that we need to be aligned. We need to be within the framework of the same universal laws and structure that apply to everything. We need to be in complete sync, acceptance and surrender.
It takes the burden off our shoulders.There is no need to ‘DO’ anything, instead we just need to ‘BE’ in that same frequency. Our doing has already created a lot of trouble all around. I read somewhere that we are called Human BEING and not Human DOING for a reason. This doesn’t mean that we should stop working hard or stop striving for the better; but when our actions are within the universal laws, minimal ripples are created. It seems so simple and liberating, yet it seems to be the most difficult thing to do.
Just imagine how will it be when there is perfect alignment. A life with no obstacles, no blockages, no interference, infinite happiness, bliss and harmony. But, it will happen only when we become true to our nature – Infinite and yet humble!
