Please give me the wisdom to know the difference.

This old prayer offers a great start to a very large, though very interesting, topic.  A topic which I would like to start exploring with an analogy of a rock falling into a clear still body of water (a pond).

{The red spot represents the rock hitting the water, and the grey circles represent the waves generated
 by the rock dropping into the water.}

Understanding the image a little better.

As indicated by the image, as the waves get further away from the center of the rock-water entry point, they get thinner, and can be expected to have less effect on their immediate environment.  A perfectly normal affect as seen in nature.

So essentially the influence that an outer wave would have on it’s immediate environment, would not be the same as the influence of an inner wave on it’s immediate environment.

To illustrate :

-                     Let’s place two small (exactly similar) boats at both points indicated by (A) and (B) in the image above, then drop a large rock in the center.
-                     Odds are the boat at (A) will topple over (or at least shake a lot), while the boat at (B) is likely to just gently rock.

Of course the size of the rock, the speed at which it enters the water and even other obstacles, that may be in the path of the waves, could in fact have a significant impact.  This would potentially affect the wave size, pattern and the maximum distance from the center, where the effects of the wave can be felt.

Slightly less important for the moment…

So what does this mean for me?

Well this image merely illustrates your universe.  And by this I do not mean just your physical universe.  I include all that exists for you, including :

-                     Your physical universe
-                     Your emotional universe
-                     Your spiritual universe
-                     Your mental universe
-                     In fact everything and everywhere that is you.

The rock in the water. This signifies everything you do, think or act upon etc. 

And the waves. They are the impact of those actions on your environment, which occur based on a “rule of proximity”.  A rule which states that the closer, the bigger the affect.  Keep in mind that the rule of proximity is not only referring to physical proximity, but might refer to for example, relationship proximity.  Or really any other form of proximity you can think of.

So for all intense and purposes you are the center of the universe in this model.  Yes this is your universe, and you are the center of it.  And strange as that might seem to you, you are in fact in total control of it.  That is if you would like to be. (Remember you have to make that choice of conscious control)

So, just like the size of the stone could change, the size of your action could change, and so the size of your waves and the impacts that these have.  Yep, these are all pretty much up to you.

And of course, as it would seem these are pretty much all the things you have control over.  You know, the size of the stone, or the speed with which it hits the water. 

The obstacles outside of this.  The other universes out there that might be interacting with yours.  The ones that might be affected by what you do.  They are NOT within your control.


You act in such a way that the affect that you wish to have, is created through your actions.  “Now there is a thought”.  You can change not only your own environment, but also affect the environments around you.  And you can do so at will, well with a little practice anyway…

So it would seem this is all up to you.  In fact you are really the center of the universe.  Yes I can see this now.  Everything that you do, will end up creating the environment you are living in by default.  Every action, and even your “REACTION” to interaction with other universes, will end up creating your universe. And since for you, it is really only your universe that exists, is there still any doubt?…

So who has the power now?....

Well, I guess that’s up to you.  I mean you are really the center of the universe after all.  And I just hope you have already made the choice to take control of it.  Otherwise you might end up creating something you don’t like so much…

Happy universe building….
