“Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you’ve changed, by believing.”
– Diane Duane
The universe is much bigger and much more intelligent than you or me. It knows what has happened and what will, consequently it takes care of what is happening.
You and I, we don’t have such grand knowledge or great wisdom. So we do what we know best- worry!
But if we could learn to trust in the universe because it always figures out everything in the end, it would make a big difference in our worrying habits.
To be able to put a full stop to the unprofitable habit of worrying is not the only benefit of believing in the universe. When you start believing in the universe it brings along a whole set of privileges.
This is a list of ten such privileges including ‘no more worries’ that you might enjoy if you step into the club called ‘universe knows best’.
The main list
You can click on any point from the list below to jump straight to the point-
Now, here is the list of the above points with a brief narration-
No more worries
1. No more worries:
We worry for the present and future, we worry for ourselves and others. But why do we worry so much? We worry because of the fact that life is unpredictable and full of uncertainties.
This worrying habit can only stop when you start believing in something bigger than yourself. If you can have faith in the universe, you will stop taking it upon yourself to alter things beyond your reach.
You know there’s no point in worrying, so may be just let the universe take care of things for now.
2. Stress reduction:
Most adults work under a lot of pressure, we are bound to get stressed out under such circumstances. Stress works quite the same way as worry.
More than the situation itself, what causes more stress is thinking about it. Thinking over and over in our minds, we create a lot of stress even for a minor event.
You have got to stop stuffing your minds with such thought patterns. Instead fill your minds with positive thoughts, thoughts about the grandeur of the universe. Think about all the things the universe has and still is doing right. Your stress won’t stand a chance before the glory of the universe.
Saving time and energy
3. Saving time and energy:
Once you get your worries and all the stress out of your mind, you will be surprised by the amount of free time and extra energy at your disposal. When you start believing in the universe and get out of it’s (and your own) way, you let things be.
There are somethings that you can’t control no matter how much you want to. You should allow the universe to oversee all those things which previously consumed a (big) chunk of your time as well as energy.
Now the question is what are you going to do with your free time and energy?
4. More positivity:
To start believing in something that is bigger than us, we have to change our old mindsets to let the new and improved thoughts take their shape.
We have to let go of self centered thinking and free our minds of negative thoughts. Only then we can accept with all our heart the universe and ourselves in it.
There will be infinite possibilities to explore and an endless reservoir of positivity.
5. More productivity:
When your mind is full of negative thoughts of fear; doubt; anger; jealousy; worry and envy, you get a lot less done throughout the day.
A lot of your time gets wasted, time that could be put to productive use.
But when you replace those negative thoughts with positive ones and a belief in the universe, you not only regain the lost time but also attain energy.
With time and energy you undoubtedly become more productive than ever before.
6. Improved concentration:
You can never focus your attention on one thing if your mind is disturbed.
You can free your mind of unnecessary worries about future occurrence (or non-occurrence) and clear out the noise inside your mind with your faith in the universe.
When your mind is at peace you can focus on the present moment more easily with an improved level of concentration.
Gaining a Bigger perspective
7. Gaining a Bigger perspective:
You will start thinking about bigger and better things about the world around you.
To come to know about the universe and how everything in it is connected, will help you gain a great understanding.
You won’t think about things only from your own narrow perspective but rather from a much wider ‘universal’ perspective.
8. Spiritual growth:
Explaining about how spirituality and belief in universe are co-related is very difficult.
You can not put into words how the soul evolves when you try to make a connection with the universe.
It is a very freeing and positive feeling. One has to experience it to know it.
9. Emotional stability:
Emotions run wild when you are in the middle of this big-bad world without anything to fall back on.
If you give the universe a chance, the universe could be your back up.
‘When all else fails I shall come to you, dear universe!’
How did you feel reading the last sentence?
I bet a little relieved! Your emotions will calm down with this grand plan.
Greater happiness and joy
10. Greater happiness and joy:
With a strong faith and a true believe in the power of the universe, you will slowly but steadily become a much more cheerful person.
When a belief is true and positive, it will bring about countless boon to the one who believes.
If you can find it in your heart to believe in the universe, you will find the great treasure of happiness and that too within yourself!
Still not sure if you should believe in the power of the universe?
Think about how the sun rises each morning, river flows, correlation between moon and tides and so many other such fascinating things going on around us.
Who plans or directs nature to follow patterns and to always maintain balance?
So many legendary men have admitted and bowed before the greatness of the universe. There still remains a lot of mystery about the universe, which no one has yet succeeded in solving.
We are a very small part of this universe and as individuals we are even more microscopic. The universe contains us, it sees through and beyond us. It’s sight has no such human limitations as selfishness, envy, judgements, prejudices and short sightedness.
Maybe it’s time we acknowledge the universe, it might remind us of our place in the enormous workings of the world.
I didn’t plan it this way but this article turned out quite a long one. To be fair, it is about the universe and you know how big the universe is! I suggest you bookmark this page in your browser and come back to it as & when you please, to finish it or to review it.
I don’t intend to say one should or could replace fair and hard work with any kind of belief or faith. ‘There’s no substitute for hard work.’ Even the universe can’t help us if we don’t work for our own dreams and aspirations.
