The World I Live In – April 10 2020

he World I Live In

 

I have refused to live

locked in the orderly house of

           reasons and proofs.

The world I live in and believe in

is wider than that. And anyway,

           what’s wrong with Maybe?

 

You wouldn’t believe what once or

twice I have seen. I’ll just

           tell you this:

only if there are angels in your head will you

           ever, possibly, see one.

Mary Oliver

 

Like quantum physics, the Veda says that the universe is affected by observation and the expectation of the observer. That the universe, indeed, is ‘observer dependent.’

 

When I live in my thinking and the ever-repeating thoughts of ‘what’s wrong with me,’ and/or ‘what’s wrong with the world,’ I continue to call into my life the experience of what has gone before. Even when something new occurs, through my thinking I will see it just as more of the same and will continue to build a life based solely on my history. 

 

If, on the other hand, I can assume something finer, something of the spirit, of light, of love; if I can assume that I am worthy of life and that life is worth living; if I can live in the expectation of a steady evolution of spirit, working through me from the darkness of fear and despair to the heights of the joy of living, enlightenment and beyond, doesn’t it follow that my experience of life might change?

 

Today I will expect the world to offer me opportunities to love, to succeed, to create, to fly, and I will assume that I am exactly the right person to fulfill these roles in the tapestry of the day. Today I will expect to see an angel.
