Children of the Universe

November 18th, 2013

Sadness.  Great sadness and grief.  Pain, fear.  Anger, rage.  Wallow-worthy spaces, indeed, but are they necessary?  Maybe so, maybe that’s why we’re here – not to suffer, I don’t believe that, but to know something besides the unutterable joy that being human truly is.

We come here (i.e. incarnate) with knowledge of the challenges, even if not the specifics of them.  We know it will not be like the in-between life.  We know we will feel all of the things listed above.  We do this intentionally, on purpose, with focus and desire in our pockets.

Sometimes I think this is crazy (see previous post on craziness).  OK, lots of times I think this is crazy, but then I’m here, aren’t I.  There is no accident or chance to this situation, so what then?  And then I remember:  I must let everyone have their experiences because just as I have come to see what’s the deal with Earth life, so have they.  We all have.

Picturing all of us floundering around in the Earth pool it all makes a bit more sense.  I dove in and forgot some stuff, some really important stuff it seems, but again I’m not the only one (thankfully).  And the good news is I still know it (all the important things) so it’s just a matter of recall.  Or perhaps, at least for me, it’s more of a matter of clearing out all the stuff that’s been piling up inside my head to see and hear what I’m really up to… or up for.

I don’t want to kick myself when I’m down, that would definitely not be helpful.  And somehow it seems that I’m supposed to be able to feel all these painful things, all this sorrow and despair.  There is the obvious way to look at it, that by having these experiences myself I can be more compassionate towards others who are going through the same stuff (although truthfully I’m just now getting to the compassion part; there have been many years where I’ve been very impatient for everyone else to ‘catch up’;  I know, it’s arrogant).

But it feels like there’s an even deeper and more mysterious ‘reason’ to this existence.  I admit that being here for others is a great gift I can give, but part of me wants to know who I am and I think this is something all of us have inside.  I could be wrong, but don’t you want to know?  Why else would the One, the All That Is, get into this whole experience/experiment?  Without having felt what it might be like to know an ‘other’, our source might not have known to think of compassion, for instance, because Source would always love itself.  I could be wrong, since many say that time has no meaning outside of the physical world.

I think Source wanted to know if it’s possible to make more of itself, to continue to expand forever and ever.  To play with Others, even if it meant making those others out of itself.  This is a very clever set up we have here.  Source is creative.  And curious.  And perhaps that – curiosity – is the greatest achievement of all.  Source can search and learn; all of the children of the Universe (you and I) can grow and expand.  The entire of existence can be added to, new things created, new ideas formed.  The variety seems infinite, at least from my vantage point.

And this – the boundless diversity which holds us all – this is the meaning of my life.  I get to play here!  With all of this stuff and all of these people!  With all of this time!  Sometimes I think I can understand the idea of “infinity in the palm of my hand.”  Sometimes I am really here.
