Imagine that you lived in a safe Universe, where you knew that no matter what happened to or around you, you’d be okay.
Like a beloved child, you’d understand that you are wrapped in a blanket of love. It doesn’t mean you couldn’t have adventures, or that there wouldn’t be bumps and bruises along the way. You might fall down sometimes, or get lost in the woods – but at the end of the day, you’d know that you’d be found again and returned to your home.
Your bruises would heal. You would be nurtured and cared for, and you would rest quietly, cozy in your own bed until a new day dawned.
What would you do if that were truly the case?
You would most likely feel free to:
- Explore the world with abandon
- Love everyone unconditionally, with an open heart
- Follow your passions
- Spread kindness and compassion wherever you go
- Laugh, dance, and dream
- Let go of blame, shame, and worry
- Be uniquely you
Now imagine that this very Earth plane where you dwell right now is just such a place.
It definitely goes against the grain to think this way. There are undeniably tragic things happening on this planet, and not every child goes to bed with a full belly in a safe home.
When you look at the very big picture, though, there is evidence of that safety and love.
Many spiritual teachers across centuries and cultures have shared their insights that this plane is ultimately one of illusion. Science is now exploring the notion that we live in a kind of simulation.
Most spiritual teachings posit that when we die, we go on to a place of healing, light, and love.
The Earth plane is a school, a place where we can adventure, learn, and grow. It’s a place where we can fall down and get bruised, and get back up to try again. No matter how broken your body and mind might become, your eternal spirit is safe and loved.
No, we can’t know that for sure. Believing in a safe Universe takes a leap of faith.
It’s totally up to you to decide how you want to see and experience this physical reality that you’re in.
Let me ask you this:
What does your spirit say?
When you listen to the whispers of your heart, the quiet voice beyond your mind’s fears and patterns, what do you hear?
Is the world a very scary place – or are we ultimately held in the safety of a loving Universe?
Even more importantly, what would you be free to do if you chose to believe that you are indeed safe to be your authentic self?
Only you can know the answers to these questions. The power of choice is yours, right now, in this moment.
