A Meditation on Chaos, or something like that...
If you are even slightly observant, you will notice that nothing is quite right. The earth isn't a perfect globe. It bulges in the middle. The moon is heavier on one side. That's why the same side faces earth all the time.
The earth's path around the sun is not a perfect circle. It's actually a bit irregular. The paths of the planets do not line up on an even plane.
Our planet is wobbling through space.
There’s so much chaos in the universe that design, though obvious, seems to be the exception, rather than the rule. It appears the Creator is still creating, and has never stopped. The evidence is all around us.
Like the universe, you, too, are a work in progress. Perfectly imperfect. And that means new and wondrous opportunities constantly surround you.
- Dare to be passionate. Relish every day.
- Dare to be redeemed. Learn from your mistakes.
- Dare to be patient. Trust yourself.
In this moment, consider yourself as a piece of clay, being molded and sculpted by an incredible artist. And that artist is you. You are continually redesigning your life, even if it seems there's little change. So, how will you design your life from this moment forward? What will you create? How will you be? You have a universe of whacky and wonderful choices. Consider the possibilities.
The fact that you still live in this world means you are not done yet. Decide now to hold your mind and heart open to all that is available to you and to all that you can offer. Remember: When you move, you take a risk. But to not move is to die. Be alive. Reach out. The universe is always wobbling in your direction.
(This is being posted on July 4, 2009. The world appears to be in complete chaos. Don't let that stop you. Enjoy the holiday and know that tomorrow holds many opportunities for you. Change your thinking, change your life! "You must be the change you would see in the world." Gandhi)
