Sometimes it’s difficult not to get caught up in the monotony of everyday life, so much so that it seems to pass us by. We find ourselves running on automatic rarely taking in the beauty of our experiences. The trouble with this type of living is that it comes at the cost of connecting with our true selves; we spend so much of our lives living subconsciously that our consciousness – the essence of who we truly are – barely gets a look in.
This consciousness, if tapped into, can transform our lives because the reality is that we are far greater than our environment sometimes allows us to be. In fact, discoveries in science are finding that we are intrinsically linked with the universe. So if you want to truly understand just how limitless you are, take a look at these quotes:
“We are an impossibility in an impossible universe.” Ray Bradbury
“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.” Alan W. Watts
“There’s as many atoms in a single molecule of your DNA as there are stars in the typical galaxy. We are, each of us, a little universe.” Neil deGrasse Tyson
“You are the universe, expressing itself as human for a little while.” Eckhart Tolle
“The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.” Rumi
“The universe has a way of giving us exactly what we believe to bee true or possible.” Dan Brule
“You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.” Alan W. Watts
“There is a force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.” Mahatma Gandhi
“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” Joseph Campbell
“We are the cosmos made conscious and life is the means by which the universe understands itself.” Brian Cox
“And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” Paulo Coelho
So the next time you find yourself in the midst of mundane activities and running on autopilot, remember this: you and the universe are one and the same. Now, does that make you feel a little more powerful?!
