Do You Know Your Ancestry?

Life is in the air! 
That’s means love is in the air, too. 
You can’t have one without the other. 
The Universe is in the business of creating, and the whole business of creation comes from the energy of love.
Look at your existence. Where do you think you came from? You didn’t just spring from your mother’s loins. Yes, biologically, you were created when egg and sperm met and merged. But your existence is more than a biological event. Much, much more.

Let’s go through an interesting exercise. A part of you came from your mother, and a part of you came from your father. This means you existed in both of your parents before you were physically born. You existed in a different energy form in two different people.

Let’s take this a step further. Before you were born and before your parents were born, you and your parents existed in your parents’ parents (your grandparents to you).

Going further, before you were born, before your parents were born and before your grandparents were born, all of you existed inside your great-grandparents. See where this is going? And if you do the math, you have two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, sixteen great-great grandparents, thirty-two great-great-great grandparents, sixty-four great-great-great-great grandparents, and so on. That’s a lot of great-greats in your family tree, isn’t it?

Now, let this blow your mind. Consider all of your (ready?) great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great (yes, that’s 25 “greats”) grandparents. If you do the math, that’s 134,227,728 of them. Before you were born you were “scattered” energy, inside all of your ancestors. A piece of you existed in each one of them. All of this has filtered down to you. Pretty amazing stuff.

The Universe created all of those people in order to create you at this point in time. You’ve existed all this time through other beings. You came through all of those ancestors just to be here today. You are not some random biological event. The Universe had you in mind since the beginning, long before your physical incarnation. If the Universe didn’t love you, you would have never existed in the first place.

That’s a whole lot of loving that’s been done in your name. Wow. Mind definitely blown.

You Happen Only Once

Osho said existence is so creative that it never repeats anything.

Wow.

There will never be anyone quite like you.

You happen only once.

You did not come off of the assembly line, nor are you a second-rate version of someone else. Unfortunately, too many people fail to see and embrace their own uniqueness. Instead, they compare themselves to others, or they copycat them, imitating their style or manner.

Copying someone else only shows you to be an imitation of that person.  Your individuality gets lost; worse yet, it dies.

I like being one of a kind.  Don’t you?

Celebrate your uniqueness. You are an expression of the Divine.
