The Youniverse

Stay centered in acceptance of the Here and Now. Not because you want to reach some “spiritual” goal, but for your own joy and peace. Choose what you prefer from what is available to you- without resisting your choice with thoughts of what “should” be or what “could” be. There is no end to the road of resisting the Here and Now. There is no end to all that noise. This is why your mind keeps running. This is why you feel lost and confused. Stay centered and let everything else go.

People are living in a dream and thinking it is the only reality. They don’t see that the reality they think is so solid is actually nothing more than flimsy, malleable ideas and perspectives. They reject new perspectives and resist change as much as they can, because they are afraid. They are afraid that life will have no meaning without the normal narrative they’ve been playing out. They feel they will be lost. They feel they won’t know who they are anymore. They are right, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is wonderful that we can change the narrative at any time. It means we can live lives that we truly prefer rather than pretending to prefer what we really hate.

Prepare yourself. Step outside the normal narrative. Get used to the unknown. Get used to being lost. Get used to being creative rather than reactive. We are moving into a new paradigm.

There is a sweeping change that is taking place. Narratives that are thousands of years old are coming to an end. Separation, fear, anxiety and other forms of negativity have been played out almost as fully as they can, without actually destroying ourselves. There is nothing more to discover in the dark, so now we’re moving into the light. It can be uncomfortable to make this change- like stepping into the daylight from a pitch black cave. But we will see so many more wonders in the light than we have seen in the darkness.

A vast world is opening up before us. Nothing will ever be the same.

I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog. Not that many people focus on the light and it's nice to know that there are people out there who are truly dedicated to bringing out the best in themselves and everyone around them. Thank you! from ladolcevidapascual

Thank you very much for your kind words! I really appreciate them!

It’s partly encouragement like yours that inspires me to continue writing. I am also inspired to share by my feeling that an increasing number of people will be attracted to this kind of information and perhaps be inspired to let go of guilt and fear and to be who they really desire to be.

I really feel the greatest service we can currently offer our pessimistic world is to truly be positive by inspiring others and allowing others to inspire us. Thank you again for inspiring me with your message! 

Have a great day!

Thank you for all that you share, you help to shine a light forward for us all !!! :) I never tire of reading your blog! Much Gratitude! :) from universoulme

Have an awesome day!

The Darkness and The Light

To truly know and experience the light you must also truly know and experience the darkness. If light was all there was it couldn’t be experienced. For light to be experienced darkness must also exist.

To truly and intimately know and experience the darkness- and know the light- you must paradoxically forget about the light. You must become so used to the pain of darkness that you forget there is a way out, because otherwise you will naturally, quickly and effortlessly move towards the joy of the light and cease experiencing the pain of darkness. 

This is where many of us are at- doubting the ways out of the darkness because we’re so used to it. We doubt the light even exists, calling it too good to be true and staying in the darkness longer because we’re afraid of leaving it. The cycle of darkness is totally based on fear. We are so used to the fear that we’re even afraid of moving away from it. 

All experience of darkness is the result of forgetting about or denying the light. All experience of light, on the other hand, is the result of remembering both the darkness and the light, realizing that the darkness is a choice and a way to experience what the light is, and then choosing the light. 

The darkness fears the light and sees it as a threat to its existence. The light loves the darkness and sees it as a way to experience its own existence.

Knowing and experiencing the light is natural to you. Moving towards it is just the process of letting go of fear and remembering the light is there now, and always has been there.

I find myself having conversations with people where I seem to be "casting pearls before swine". In your experience does it make any difference to share about such topics with people who are not as conscious? I feel divided in that, I get frustrated if I'm not able to convey the message, because I feel we are all souls capable of grasping these things, if nothing else, subconsciously...but I also sometimes feel I'm wasting my time and giving them too much credit. from Anonymous

Hi there!

Sorry for the delayed response!

In my experience I have learned to share what I feel like sharing- my joy and my passion- without any expectations about what people get from it. People who aren’t that conscious probably will not get most of what I have to say- and that is ok! It is not up to me what they get from me or how much. This lack of expectations keeps interactions with others light and easy instead of forceful and manipulative. I feel it is the joy, love and passion behind what is said that is more important than what is actually said anyway. It’s just about being strong enough to be honest in deciphering whether you are being joyful or fearful in your interactions.

Trying to get others to understand your message usually comes from fear and I don’t think anybody really wants to listen to a fearful person anyway. People who are looking for something are usually looking for inspiration, joy, passion and love. They are probably already in some state of fear and they are searching for a way out- so there is no point in joining them at that level when you have the opportunity and the willingness to help them out. You may not even need to help them out consciously. Many times people you don’t even know will be inspired by your state of being, just by coming across your work or in some other random way. I know I have been inspired by many joyful people who aren’t “spiritual” at all and who have no idea that they have inspired me. They just go about their lives in a passionate way and they naturally inspire people who aren’t passionate- as I was not too long ago. The fact is that some people will lead a joyful, loving and fulfilling life without ever coming across spiritual concepts. Does it really matter if they do? They are expressing joy and love in their own unique way and that is fine! 

The funny thing is, the more freedom you give people to be who they want to be, by releasing them from any expectations, the more likely they will listen to you and gravitate to you because of the freedom you offer them. People love to hang out with people who are joyful, loving and passionate. It’s the energy they want. Focus on the energy you give off and forget about the rest. There is nothing wrong if your interaction is joyful and loving and doesn’t ever cover any spiritual concepts. Lighten up about all this! :)

I have been getting this feeling that everybody I meet or already know is an awesome person who doesn’t know they’re awesome. It’s like they’re holding onto this shallow limited identity of themselves and pretending that is all they are, when they are really so much more. There is so much more depth in each person that isn’t being expressed because of doubt and fear. There is this constant urge to be more- to express and experience the infinite depth of our beings and be the highest self we can be now- that is actively being repressed because we live in fear.
