One way of reflecting on the actions of the Universe is that everything just ‘is’.
What I mean by that is that actions and experiences are not directed at us either to reward us or to punish us. Everything just ‘is’ according to nature’s laws.
The main purpose of the Universe is creation and with the emotion of love we are able to contribute to this creation; if the purpose were only destruction there would be no rebirth. With creation comes inevitable change and the movement from one state to another. We readily accept that autumn follows summer, that seeds turn into trees and that fruit rots after it has ripened. Sometimes we are not so keen to accept the change that affects our own existence.
Our gift of reason is partly to blame, since for all its advantages it has also enabled us to pass judgement. We are able to determine whether things are bad or whether they are good, and this realisation can shape our lives for the better or for the worse.
If we can strive to accept that everything just ‘is’, we can allow ourselves to follow the flow of our inner truth; a truth that connects us all.
