It occurs to me that each one of us has a universe inside. There are light and energy sources – suns and stars. Also plenty of space. And black holes – awful negative nothingness which is another name for the bottomless-pit-of-need where you can never get enough validation or self-esteem. Inner planets too? Why not.
Positive energy (the sun) shines forth as one loves, receives inspiration, gives back, and puts ideas into action.
But it is hard not to be afraid of the black hole and of being drawn into it. It is such a hopeless void.
Sometimes I blaze through my universe with rocket-fired determination – gladly constructing and carrying out ideas, projects and schemes. At other times I languish, lost in space.
These are elements within my inner universe, and perhaps they are elements inside yours. The universe isn’t only out there, but also in here.
I lay in bed early this morning thinking these thoughts before turning over and going back to sleep.
