Everything that happens to me in my life is for me. Every encounter in a shop, every traffic light, every conversation, the songs on the radio, every rainbow, full moon, flower blooming; everything is for my benefit. I am the centre of my world – the rest of everything revolves around me.
The same is true for each one of us. This might sound crazy as how can everything be for me and be for you at the same time, but it is. The same rainbow in the sky will have a different meaning and timing for me as it will for you, it is the same rainbow on the same day but it is for me only, and for you only, simultaneously.
When you start to notice and accept that you are the centre of your world and that everything that happens, is happening specifically FOR you, there is a shift in your connection with the world. Things no longer happen TO you, but they happen FOR you. This awareness helps takes away stress and struggle because it empowers you.
You can even look at the interactions that you have with people, can you see how these people are there FOR you. You can learn from them, play the game of the universe with them, and grow from every interaction. It can take the perception of drama away from interactions, if you observe how you are learning and growing from the interaction and that it is actually happening to help you, then it feels lighter and sometimes even more ‘fun’!
It is very empowering to embrace this fact that we are each the centre of our own universes. It takes away the notion that things happen to us – Instead we can believe that things happen FOR us. This moves us from being a victim of life to becoming a creator of life.
Even when I teach a class I acknowledge everything that I learn from the students who show up. I am so grateful for them all showing up FOR me! I know this sounds crazy, but the same is true for every one of those students, everyone else in the class showed up for them as well. Because we are the centre of our own universe and our own experience, then that one spiritual development class will enable each individual (including me) to experience what they need to experience for their own evolution.
We are each in the centre of our own universes, revolving around and interacting with each other’s universes.
So the next time you are in a situation, look and observe what is showing up FOR you. Be grateful and observe how you are the centre of your own universe.
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
