Choosing how we look at our Universe.
All of us fall into two categories in the way we perceive and choose to live our lives.
- We perceive and act from the inside-out.
- We perceive and react from the outside-in.
The Second category is how most of us on planet Earth live. There’s nothing wrong with this choice, but it does come with its problems, difficulties, and drama. It’s a frustrating life that often times is filled with stress, anxiety, and depression. I’m not judging here, and it’s to each their own. We know deep within us what experiences we need, and we perfectly create our universe to fulfill our needs. Although we may create suffering for ourselves and others, it’s what we may choose, and it has its purpose.
Nothing exists without a purpose, and when we look closely we can see the why in everything, but it doesn’t necessarily mean we will understand it. We just need to accept it for what it is.
Living from the outside in is filled with desire, longing, and judgment. It is the choice of suffering.
Category one can only be lived as a conscious choice. It doesn’t come easy for us, and it is either taught to us when we are children, learned from a life of living in category two, or we suffer trauma from some event.
Not many of us who are living, or for that matter, who have ever lived choose to perceive and act from the inside-out. It is not an easy thing to do, and there are many distractions preventing us from choosing to live in this way, from money and sex to career and social status, including everything in between. The pull from the world is powerful, and it will test us in every way it can, but we can still choose.
As we discover we can opt to perceive from the inside-out, we find we begin to act from this perspective. It comes with the knowledge of peace, stillness, and love for everything, including ourselves. We start to see everything as it is and we start to have original action within our experience. We can create effortlessly, and we begin to interact with others in meaningful ways. We find peace, and it’s the only place we find genuine peace. It is within me, within you, and within all of us. It’s here, and it’s always been here. It’s a choice to live this way, and it’s a choice that’s always available if we are done with the suffering.
It’s not to say all of the distractions of this world disappear. Far from it. Everything that existed for us as we lived from the outside-in is still here, but we are able to consciously choose our experience, including how we live, what we do, and who we love and who we make love with. Everything is still here, but we begin to Act instead of Reacting.
You, me, all of us are unique in the universe. Actually, if we look closely, the entire Universe is designed in a way that each and every detail is absolutely unique, you included. There has never been anyone like you since the beginning of Creation, nor will there ever be anyone like you in all of this Universe. You are special and completely unique. Celebrate that!
We can go about our lives in one of the two ways mentioned, but only one of the means will lead to knowing how unique we truly are in existence.
The choice is yours and yours alone. I choose to live from the inside out. How about you?
All of my Love,
