“You are not a drop of water in the ocean – you are the entire ocean in a drop.” Rumi
Inside the chest of every precious human being is all the light from all the stars in existence. The universe has mysteriously clothed itself inside our fallible and seemingly fragile human forms. It peeks through our chests, unfurls through our minds, and unfolds through our souls. We contain the divine. All we need to do is look within, straight inside our chests, and witness brilliance itself.
“All creation waits with eager longing for the revealing through the sons of man.” Albert Einstein
It is said that Einstein had the above quote burned into his desk, and attributed it to all his inventions. He knew the mystery and the magic and the truth. There is so much beauty, love, energy, wisdom, and joy inside us – more than we can ever contemplate with our conscious thinking brains – it is a truth we have to feel in our hearts:
The divine is here, now, right within us. Everything we could ever want, choose, feel, believe, experience – the answers are right here, encased within, waiting for us to discover it.
It is as simple as taking a deep breath and then simply looking inside the epicenter of our heart-fields. Take another, and look deeper. Keep breathing, and keep looking closer and closer for the divine smiling back at you from the endless depths within.
