The knowing universe

31 Mar 2016

The universe knows us more than we know ourselves, although we probably think the opposite is true. Although consciously I never gave the universe a thought as a child, unconsciously I always knew there was something bigger out there, something bigger than myself.

Now when I look back, I realise that the life I’ve had to live has shaped and defined my life to this point. The CP Diary wouldn’t exist without it. I personally believe that all possibilities happen through Divine Timing, the idea that everything happens at its exact right time.

The universe doesn’t work to a preset list of wants, because life isn’t about what we want, but what we need. We must be open to being sent what the universe thinks we need at any given time. We limit all possibilities if we are determined to ask for what we think we want.

The universe is happy to oblige, but we must never try to control the outcome. Having a little faith and accepting that things happen for a reason, whatever the outcome, will help us understand the outcome, as long as we apply our thinking and look for our lessons.

To do that, we must zoom out so that we’re looking at the bigger picture on our lives. Looking at things from a broader perspective gives us more clarity, more understanding, a better vantage point for us to understand why things happen in the way they do and when or why they don’t happen at all.

Being wrong about what we think we want or need, is the best way to learn. We struggle in the present so that we learn how not to struggle in the future. What we think we need isn’t the same as what’s possible. It’s important to give up our need for control of what we want.

Things only happen when they’re supposed to happen. I believe we must put our trust in the universe that we get what we’re supposed to get at the right divine time.

    Yes, the Universe has provided plenty of opportunities for me that I didn’t take advantage of!

    I have spent most of my life not knowing what I really needed and not feeling worthy of getting what I wanted. I grew up in a world where my dreams were constantly being crushed, to the point where I stopped having any.

    People who have had a normal childhood have a chance to grow up and figure out who they are and what it is that they really want out of life. We didn’t have that luxury when we had to fight every day just to survive.

    I often wonder what things could have been like, if I had parents who would’ve helped to achieve my dreams. The most I can do now is try to provide that option for my daughter, since her mother doesn’t seem capable of it!

      Yes we’re born equal and then our lives change from there. I believe the Universe is instrumental in that too, although for many the jury’s out on that one.

      I do believe though, that even with bad childhoods, we can be instrumental in turning our lives around in adulthood. I’ve had my fair share of issues to deal with, (all of which are documented here) but whilst we still breathe and there is life in us, I think it important we work it through.

      It’s easy to talk about the life we’ve had, the emotional issues we’ve had to endure, but life evolves and as you say the Universe provides new possibilities. We must be open to those possibilities too.

      It’s a case of looking out for open doors, opportunities, being aware… that’s all it takes. Sometimes we see the opportunities; are very much aware of what they are, but are too afraid to change.

      I think you still have a life Randy. Your life isn’t just about your daughter. Yes your life should include your daughter and she has to be your biggest priority, but you’re still young enough to change certain aspects of your life.

      If you’re open to the possibilities, the Universe will oblige, but you have to be receptive and open to all possibilities, so you’re ready for change.

    Amen to this!! As I’m teaching my children now, everything happens for a reason and the outcome will set itself in its own time. Not ours.

    We can plan until we’re exhausted of it, but in the end, our situations will be what they will be.

      Exactly my sentiment Bonnie. Your children’s understanding will be far greater than they realise in time. Good for you.

    We spend most of our lives sequestered in small spaces in our minds, dead to everything truly meaningful. It’s not that we’re lacking vision, we just look in strange places and yield to childish versions of God for the truth.

    There must be a place where the universe meets, where no one is pleading for their life or crying for their soul, and where there’s a reason for everything.

      Thanks Tim. Yes I believe there is a place in its entirety, in our understanding of what the Universe is and how it works. Until we fully understand, we will lack the vision of the Universe and its possibilities.

      Without the vision and understanding we will not only turn on ourselves, but will also turn on each other. That is exactly what the world is doing.
