For a while I stood and stared deep into the void, reminding myself of my place in the cosmos. That I am part of a vast, vast Eco- system, and reasonably so, life just does not revolve around me. When you think of yourself as a dot in the very huge and vast Eco-system, you tend to feel lost. And when you’re lost? It’s difficult to feel special. I felt my mouth form these horrid words, “there comes change!”
It’s a challenge to transition…
Shifting from school to the career world, from dependence to independence, any kind of transition, tags along with it a seemingly huge amount of an insurmountable mound of challenges.
The best way to prepare for any kind of change is to nature strength of spirit beforehand, to shield you from breaking when something unexpected is thrown at you.
Whoever named ‘the cosmos’ must have had a healthy and rich sense of irony. The cosmos means, the universe seen as a well ordered whole.
See, life is inevitably tumultuous and chaotic; order? is a decent dream and goal. But in that noisy confusion? Your soul should always be at peace. Therefore, make sure that you are solitude’s faithful companion. Take time to be alone, to look inside you, and address what you find; “who am I, where I’m I going, and if I continue on this path that I’m on, will I get to where I’m supposed to be?”
Hope like a crazy being because despite the chaos of life, despite the daily disillusionment and broken dreams, the cosmos is still unfolding the way it should…and whether it appears obvious to you or not, all things (including the bad ones) are working to your advantage, they are working together for your good…you just have to see it that way.
Keep in mind at all times, that perfection is a unicorn…simply put; it’s a beautiful imagination that is unattainable. So, there will be a constant need to be a better person, and sometimes you will have no clue on how to do that, but guess what? Every imaginable help is available to that human being who admits that they are unable to figure out life by self-effort alone. So, be very gentle with yourself, allowing yourself to make mistakes, and learn from them.
Constantly walk with the confidence though, that you are never alone, the love of the Creator of this very huge and vast cosmos for you? is so true. It’s real, constant and secure.
