A Cosmic View
Our everyday lives of taking care of our families, working,
commuting and sometimes playing can often seem redundant and boring.
We begin to wonder, 'Is
that all there is?' We may develop a feeling that something is
missing. There must be more to life.
Perhaps you are one of the many people who have had experiences that
defy current scientific explanations, such as a near death
experience, intuitive guidance and/or a kind of knowing about people
You feel that there is
much more to who you are.
It is true that you are more than your body, mind and emotions. You
are something far greater.
You are a Being of
We live in a
Sea of Energy
Everything we see, hear, touch, smell and feel and even our thoughts
and concepts are actually patterns of energy that form what we
consider to be "reality".
Our minds are designed to arrange energy patterns of light into
forms that we can recognize as trees, rocks, animals, fish, fowl and
people. Unconsciously, the pattern identifiers in our brain arrange
this energy into a "real" three-dimensional world.
(People who are blind or
deaf from birth and then gain sight or hearing have to be trained to
identify the unfamiliar, light patterns and sounds they see and
And we have additional senses:
intuition, telepathy, healing energy, imagination, faith, hope
and Love that cannot be charted and are far beyond the "normal"
sensual capabilities we use in the everyday world of work and

secrets of the universe,
think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."

In the past twenty-four years with the launch of
the Hubble Telescope, new windows
have opened for us to see far into space.
We have learned that the
universe is much larger than we thought or even dreamed possible.
There are trillions of stars held
within hundreds of billions of swirling masses called galaxies
moving away from us in all directions, as far as the telescope can
This past week, a team of astronomers and astrophysicists announced
that they have discovered
patterns of gravity waves, which
squeeze and stretch the fabric of space.
These gravitational waves
were created in abundance during the early expansion, or "inflation"
of the Universe. The waves were born at the instant when space grew
from a pinpoint smaller than an atom (known as the Big Bang)
into the entire observable universe we see today.
And there are so many invisible waves:
sound, light, radio,
TV, radar, heat, cell phone, microwave, electromagnetic waves.
And they all travel
through space at the speed of light.

pervades everything in the Universe:

physical world, in the infinite ocean of the medium which
pervades all, so in the world of organisms, in life, an impulse

light, at times, again, so slowly that for ages and ages it
seems to stay, passing through processes of a complexity
inconceivable to men, but in all its forms, in all its stages,
its energy ever and ever integrally present.

We have been blessed with
minds that are capable of learning about the smallest elements of
the visual and invisible Universe, and we are able to study the
large swirling masses of stars in galaxies!
Through this greater
understand, we begin to realize that we are more than limited beings
on one small planet, attached to an average sized star, located in
an outer spiral of a mid-size Galaxy.
By become aware of this awe-inspiring expansiveness, makeup and
timing of the universe, you will gain a wider vision of who you are
and can catch a glimpse of the Infinite Creative Consciousness
that is still creating within and around you.
You are like
a drop of water in the ocean
that can be separate
and at the same time
is made of the substance
of the sea.
You are a
You are a Star-Seed!
You are composed of the
substance of the stars and the vibrational frequencies that flow
through the universe.
And what is behind all of this wonderful manifestation? It is a
Universal Consciousness that permeates all things and moves through
all beings. This Universal Consciousness lives in you and breathes
When you open your Secret Awareness, you will know that the Universe
is within you. You will have access to all the knowledge,
understanding and all the Universal Love that has ever been and ever
Why did you
manifest into form?
Your Soul is infinite.
This central core of who
you are has manifested in form to physically experience the
energetic patterns of manifestation in the Third Dimension. You are
here to experience "reality".
Your soul, your central Spiritual connection with All That Is,
knows the world is like a giant playhouse, as Shakespeare
said, and we are all the players on the stage, acting out different
stories and adventures.
It is helpful to step
back and be an observer. You can watch the play while at the same
time acting in it.
You don't have to lose
yourself in the play.
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.
Turn inward to access Universal Love
By turning inward into the Universal Consciousness, which is
Love in its purest form, we are able to inhabit the world more
We don't take the ups
and downs of life so seriously. We can see that all interaction
and events are leading us toward a greater understanding of who
we are and what we are to do and be.
Every person is a messenger
Every person who shows up in your life is a messenger for your
growth, and each serves as a participant in the unfolding story
of your life.
By knowing that
everything is made up of swirling energy patterns, which are
always changing, you can turn inward and rest in the very Center
of your Being.
Listening for Guidance
You will know what to say, do and the action to take by
listening for guidance, which comes from the same magnificent,
Universal Consciousness that created the Universe.

You are meant to
remain aware and always connected to the Universal
Consciousness. By staying aware, you will help lift humanity to
a new level of understanding.
Know that you are a
representative of peace and an agent of Love.
A human being is
part of the whole, called by us "Universe", a part limited
in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and
feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of
optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a type of prison for us, restricting us to
our personal desires and to affection for a few persons
nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by
widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living
creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Become a Beacon of
It is your job to stand firm in the Light and Shine!
Take the time to meditate
- quiet your mind - to strengthen your connection to Universal
Consciousness. By clearing and raising your energy patterns, you
will access your strengths and capabilities.
Your renewed awareness
will help lift you and humanity to a higher level of understanding.
Allow yourself to represent the Divine Energy of Creation,
receive inspiration and become an unlimited representative of love,
peace and prosperity for the world.
