Recently we have been on an extended tour of inner space. For those who have been along for the ride, during the past several months we have experienced the vast emptiness and also the astounding fullness of our centered awareness and contemplative states of mind.
We have seen the infinity within, experienced the astonishing and unlimited potential of a clear uncluttered mind, and witnessed endless cycles of thought, feeling, and sensory impression swirling throughout our inner selves.
Being more in touch with what we bring to the world brings us more in touch with the world itself. We feel more connected – more an integral part of things. We know better what it means to participate in all the miracles of life. Now that we know the unity of inner experience, we can better appreciate the unified field of external reality as well.
Moving outward now, in expanding spheres of awareness, it is time to embrace the universe as a whole. There is no empty space here, there, or anywhere. There is simply relative density. The universe is filled with matter and energy and our bodies are continuously in contact with all of that. The universe of contemporary science has no center and no edge. Space-time forms a continuum and we are simply a part of the stream. We are in it. We are of it. It is what we are. It is who we are.
You may hold some fictional view that you are a separate entity, but there are no such things as separate entities anywhere in the cosmos. There is only the continuous universe. You are in it. You are of it. It is what you are. It is who you are.
