the entire universe has conspired to create you; in a singular and sacred process, from the atomic furnaces of thousands of suns, matter and energy strewn across the cosmos, birthed from randomness and uncertainty, harmonized by the unconditional love of our mother Earth, manifested from pure possibility into such exquisite beauty, we are stardust, connected to and humbled by the whole of existence; unique, united, and aware!

 

Man — despite his artistic pretensions, his sophistication, and his many very real accomplishments — owes his existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.

There’s always a lot of magic, but our way of seeing is very small and we mostly just call it Nature. Why, we are not at all surprised that we can pick an apple in the autumn that was a pink flower in the spring. That’s natural magic and we don’t really notice it.

The Hounds of the Morrigan, by Pat O’Shea  (via littlesugarplumfairy)

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation, but thoughts about it. Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking.

You. You. You are alive.
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the sunlight that came through the shuffling leaves of the summer trees
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the light that fell from the crisp night sky of winter, where a fleck of light in the corner of the player’s eye might be a star a million times as massive as the sun, boiling its planets to plasma in order to be visible for a moment to the player, walking home at the far side of the universe, suddenly smelling food, almost at the familiar door, about to dream again
and sometimes the player believed the universe had spoken to it through the zeros and ones, through the electricity of the world, through the scrolling words on a screen at the end of a dream
and the universe said I love you
and the universe said you have played the game well
and the universe said everything you need is within you
and the universe said you are stronger than you know
and the universe said you are the daylight
and the universe said you are the night
and the universe said the darkness you fight is within you
and the universe said the light you seek is within you
and the universe said you are not alone
and the universe said you are not separate from every other thing
and the universe said you are the universe tasting itself, talking to itself, reading its own code
and the universe said I love you because you are love.
And the game was over and the player woke up from the dream. And the player began a new dream. And the player dreamed again, dreamed better. And the player was the universe. And the player was love.
You are the player.
Wake up.

I will forever love this.

What a thought, that in the heart of each one of us there dwells, there lives, the Ever–Unfolding, the Constant, the Eternal, the Changeless, knowing no death, knowing no sorrow, the very divinity of all! How this dignifies human life! What courage does it give us! How does it clear away old moldy superstitions! What unspeakable visions of Reality, of the Truth, do we obtain when we go inwards, after having emptied the mind.

The Universe sends us exactly what we are ready for at the exact time we need it in our lives.

The problem is that ego can convert anything to its own use, even spirituality.

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at begin to change.

What we have forgotten is that thoughts and words are conventions, and that it is fatal to take conventions too seriously.
