143 – How Different We Will Be …

It is uncanny to realize that most of humankind is yet unable to perceive our intimate connection with our Universe – the connection that gives us life with a subtle yet forceful mandate to self-create, self-organize, bond, adapt, self-regulate, regenerate, self-perpetuate, transform – when the connection is in plain sight for all of us to see.

You and I, like our Universe, have been engendered full of contradictions – nurturing and cruel, creative and destructive, chaotic and organized, extraordinarily active amid elusive stability, extremely beautiful yet marred by tragedy and horror – and yet we are endowed, like our Universe, with the capacity to generate our own components and organize them into cohesive yet adaptable systems.

The idea that we are intimately connected with an entire Universe is inconceivable to the current evolutionary stage of the human mind. But then how else can we account for the fact that we exist, like our Universe, because we imprint every cell we create in our bodies with the same mandate with which our Universe imprints every one of its components: atoms, cells, solar systems, galaxies, you and I.

Whether the natural sciences and organized religions disagree with this undeniable aspect of our reality is of no consequence to me. Both groups have demonstrated, oftentimes with extreme and cruel consequences, their reticence to bend their dogmatic ideologies to inquiring ideas.

Through my observations of the natural world and what I have come to learn from open-minded individuals, I have come to perceive universal patterns that leave me no doubt about our intimate connection with our Universe. The pattern, for instance, that amid the seemingly infinite number of components that make up our Universe, there are common denominators underlying us all: We are all made up of other components and congregate as parts of other components, we are all driven to struggle to adapt and survive until something cuts us short or brakes our impulse. And since I can see these patterns, I believe anybody can.

It is so that it gives me hope to imagine how different humankind will be when we all can see that as our Universe is full of contradictions, and yet It self-generates, self-organizes, adapts, self-regulates, self-perpetuates, transforms, so do we.

It is through the recognition of this affinity with our Universe that the perception of our intimate connection with the Being that gives us Life can be attained.
