"Everything in the universe is within. Ask all from yourself" ~Rumi
We are being called to look deeper within, where the universe is mirrored. Any change that occurs within is acted out upon the world without. You can look at it as a kind of butterfly effect.
It is understood as scientific fact that no thing separates us from anything in the universe. We are all part of a thread connected to the fabric of existence, connected to all. The space between I and Thou is not visible to the naked eye but, it doesn't mean there isn't anything there. I'm sure you've felt it. That electrical charge when someone looks your way as they pass by. Or the gut punch when you find out someone you respect and care about has said something deeply hurtful about you. Nothing physically touched you in the visual sense, but we are touched by invisible energy all around us, all the time. We are one.
Our thoughts are an example of the invisible energy that can take on denser form and reside in our being and be projected out into the universe. Do we emit nectar or poison? We manifest nothing material without first planting the invisible seed into our creative nest, our womb - or hara (in men). We can choose to merge our creative power with our heart center to manifest fully balanced loving creations and relationships. The alternative is what we have seen far too much of on this planet. Lots of abusive neglectful power with very little loving nurturing kindness.
There have been a plethora of scientific reports and various publications about the health benefits of mindfulness and meditation practices. When we allow ourselves to breath space between our thoughts and actions, not only does our suffering cease but possibilities become limitless. Essentially we are tuning into the frequency of primordial creation, the womb space of the universe within our consciousness.
Fred Kluth makes deep connections in his article below about the endless possibilities of becoming active conscious gardeners of our lives and our planet to awaken the beauty of the universe that lives within and all around us. There are as many ways to do this as there are living beings. Focus on loving intention and tuning into that primordial creative feminine frequency. I'm not saying it's easy for everyone. It isn't for many. Allow yourself to soften into the experience. Let go of the clutter that no longer serves you and the planet and we will all continue to heal the wounds of patriarchy, collectively.
Observing the Universe
By Fred Kluth
I read an article on a mainstream news site questioning whether the universe has consciousness and indicating according to quantum theory, that something changes when it is observed. In addition, scientists are considering that we can actually be awakening the consciousness of the universe by observing it.
Observing in itself should be a passive scientific activity but it might not always the case and the idea that by observing something we are changing it, what if we are observing the universe as a vast hostile environment or a place of life, peace and abundance. Does this influence the universe?
Just as if you are doing self-examination and you are consciously/unconsciously observing or projecting feelings of hostility or negativity on yourself, you can often observe your actions as something negative, which affects your self image and how you operate in the world
Just as the Cherokee story of the grandfather and the two wolves. We have two wolves within each of us, Grandfather tells his grandson, who are in battle. One wolf is full of anger, violence and jealousy, he will attack his kin to get the last scrap of meat. He is mean and has a terrible nature. And there is another wolf who is kind and loving, who looks out for his brother with love and peace. "Which wolf is the strongest, Grandfather?", the grandson asks. The one which you feed says the grandfather.
Many newspapers will do their best to report the facts. But many times the newspapers will write stories and edit them, not only to spread the owner’s point of view but also by what stories get the most clicks and people sharing on social media. This will influence the types of stories the newspapers publish and helps them choose which to put money behind to promote in order to drive people to their sites and boost ad revenue.. This will influence the reader’s world view and in turn influence the world. What we observe in the world, changes our world and the energy we put into our lives can influence what types of changes these will be for us. It might make us feel fear and stress and when we are in a state of distress we might act in unkind ways to those around us.
We cannot all be cosmic observers, gazing through quantum telescopes but we can be mindful about the types of stories we share and click on and consume, we can hold ourselves with peace, love and forgiveness. We can develop daily practices that help us get to the place where we can feel peace and love, and at least be aware of our feelings when we are feeling conflicted, angry and in pain and trying to allow us to forgive ourselves. Knowing we are trying to do the best we can with the tools we have learned to use.
If we can create a bit more peace in our hearts, consciously observe the strengths we have and the strengths and love we have in the others around us, perhaps it can help awaken better parts in ourselves and each other. Making our universe a better place.

I'm grateful to intelligent people. That doesn't mean educated. That doesn't mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call 'mother wit' means intelligence that you had in your mother's womb. That's what you rely on. You know what's right to do.
