Who thought the first thought? Where did the Universe come from? What’s it all for, anyway? Have you ever grappled with these existential thoughts? Well, today we can grapple together, as I explore and share my perspective and the answers I’ve received in my meditation and channelling sessions. Prepare to go WAY down the rabbit hole today…
Coaching Call #165 is out! The topic of this week’s call is: How to Make More Friends When You Don’t Feel Good Enough.
This caller is ashamed to say she doesn’t have friends she can socialize with on a regular basis. She’s scared to open up with people and be who she really is because she thinks the real her is not good enough for them.
What limiting beliefs does she have that makes her feel ashamed and not good enough? How can she make the friends she wants to and begin to value herself more when she’s around them?
This call is for anyone who wants to make more friends and for those of you who feel second best in a friendship.
Awesome Dudette’s Burning Question:
“Hi Melody! I was watching some films about how big the universe actually is and that led me to this burning question: We are here to benefit all-that-is, to expand and have fun. That feels great and I love it… But, what is the ‘purpose’ of the universe? Is it here to expand and just feel good, like us? But why then did it came into being? And if it is this intelligent consciousness, was it always here?”
Here’s my response:
Oh dear Awesome Dudette, you’ve asked the million dollar question! I’m going to answer it and I’m also not going to answer it. I apologize for that but I have to tell you, if you ever find the answer to the origin of the Universe, I would love to hear it. I can only tell you the answers that I have found and that have satisfied me. When I’ve meditated on this extensively, and asked my guides again and again about this, here are the answers that I got.
Where did the Universe come from? Who thought the first thought?
The way that it was explained to me, at first, was that I could not (wouldn’t be able to) understand the answer. It’s a little bit like going to a one celled organism and saying “What is your experience?”, and thinking that you’re going to get an interesting answer. It’s also a little bit like trying to have a verbal conversation with a 2 week old baby. They don’t have any experience but because your experience is so much broader than that, you are not going to have any satisfaction. They are not going to be able to explain to you what it is they are going through or how they’re feeling.
This was the explanation that I got, so I’ve never been able to go back all the way to the origin; it’s so far back. Also, the message I got was that it’s completely irrelevant to our current experience. That’s why I said I’m answering it but I’m also not really answering it.
What is the purpose of us being here?
For me, the purpose of us being here, the purpose of the Universe, is like God experiencing him or herself. We are this multi-faceted being (which I’ve explained in a different video); we are this one big giant diamond that got split off into all kinds of smaller diamonds that then split off into smaller diamonds, and those smaller diamonds split off into smaller diamonds and so on. They are all multi-facetted and your consciousness right here, right now, is one tiny little diamond with many different facets. If you bring them all together we are, at the same time, one big giant diamond, but we are also the little tiny particles. Yet, in our human experience we cannot really hold the perspective of all those little different diamonds, of all of those different facets, but we can reach for the wisdom and the perspective of the few diamonds up; we can have experiences of other diamond’s facets when we meet up with other people. At the same time we are individual beings and yet, we are all one. That’s how I see that represented in my meditations.
We are here to experience, we are here to shift perspective and we’re here to have different experiences; each one of us, having different experiences, going through our lives, making choices. We’re certainly not meant to suffer, but suffering is also an experience that is open for us to have. We have complete and total free will and we can have whatever experience we want, and yet a simple shift in our perspective changes our experience completely.
This big diamond wanted to experience more, and as you cut a diamond in half you are giving it more sides, more facets, if that makes any sense. Every time the diamond is split there are more facets and each one of those facets can represent an experience. So the more you split it again and again, the more experiences you’re able to have.
A different explanation
That’s just one explanation, there’s another explanation that I also really like, and this one comes from Bashar, who is also a powerful teacher. He talks a lot about the law of attraction and the kind of things that I talk about and his explanation goes as such: If you have a tiny little particle that moves at infinite speed, not the speed of light, infinite speed and its whizzing back and forth, it will eventually reach a point of speed where it would seem to be in more than one place at a time. As it’s whizzing back and forth, that one particle could look like a million particles, and yet it really is just that one particle; it’s just moving really quickly. That one particle is able to experience a place with a 360 degree view, another place with a 360 degree view, and another and another and so on. This is what we are doing; we are able to experience, through our consciousness, through our specific focus, right here right now. In this one little place you can turn around and get a 360 degree view through your life experience. You are experiencing that little bit, and that all gets added together with everybody else’s experience into a broader experience, then another broader perspective and then again, an ever broader perspective.
Finding your own truth
That’s the purpose of why we’re here. Although I’ve probably thoroughly confused you, but that IS the purpose of why we are here. We are here to experience, to broaden the perspective of “the One, the Whole, the All That Is.” You can call that God, Source, the Universe, Your Higher Self; call it Bob if you want, it doesn’t really matter, but that to me is why we’re here. If that explanation does not resonate with you then go find your own truth because remember, there isn’t just one truth. There is a truth you can adopt or not adopt depending on how it feels. This one has satisfied me, because it also opens up the door to say you get to choose your experience; you don’t have to have a negative experience; you can have a positive experience. You can move towards that and you can change your life to having more awesome experiences.
I think the world has experienced enough pain, and now we are able to move into the awesome spectrum. I think that this view gives us permission to do that, and it does really work that way when I’ve applied it to my own life and my clients’ lives. This type of explanation does help, but again, if it doesn’t satisfy you, keep searching and if you ever do find a different explanation for the origin of the Universe or who thought that first thought, then please let me know. I have not been able to get a better explanation than the one I’m giving you here today.
