The Alive

By Tantrawave @planetbuddha
The Universe, as it has so far been observed, is very vast, and full of all kinds of phenomena that have yet to be explained. But that's the problem. We are only OBSERVING it, not being a part of it. Feeling it, knowing it, and realizing that there's a whole lot more going on than meets the eye.
You see, just sitting there and looking at it with human, physical, eyes doesn't give us the whole picture. Neither do x-ray or radio telescopes, and even if they do, I don't believe we are interpreting the things we find in the proper way, because again, we are looking at them with our physical eyes, and comprehending them with our physical minds.
But what if all the energy in the Universe, that we CAN actually see, is much more than we've ever assumed it to be? What if it's actually a consciousness, one that we ourselves are a part of, at least when we're not in these physical bodies? What then?
Our physical existences are not without clues. Take a look at the events of your life, and realize that everything that has happened is in reality an ordered sequence of events that have, before, and in the future,  continue to lead to one conclusion or another. You are who you are today because of the results of those events, and if any of them had been different, you would not be where you are today, sometimes, literally. Your location might even be different. You can look at everything that has transpired in your life, and see that there is indeed order from seeming chaos. Each event happening at precisely the right moment, when it NEEDED to happen, in order to facilitate future events, and so on and so on.
The Universe is constantly at work, bringing order to chaos, sometimes slowly, sometimes it seems that order turns to chaos, but that's only because we are not looking at the big picture. The Universe works in the long term, not just today. Everything is planned out, orchestrated, and placed just where it needs to be, when it needs to be there. It's all about the movement of energy, and the Universe is full of it, it's made of it, and that energy is a part of us too. We are not outside of it, we still obey the same rules. We may not be aware of it consciously, but deep inside of us, we can all feel it. That's why we constantly search for something greater than ourselves, because we sense that consciousness. We "know" the Universe is alive.
Think about it.
