A drop of water in the universe

Let’s say you have a bucket of water. Next, you put just a drop of water in that bucket. Now let’s say you want to remove that same drop of water from the bucket. You wouldn’t be able to do that. Why? Because once that drop of water joins with the water in the bucket you won’t be able to remove that same drop of water.

Now remove one drop of water in that bucket. Not only have you removed part of the water that was already in the bucket, you have removed a part of the drop of water you just put in the bucket. Why? Because that one drop of water became part of the whole, and you won’t be able to remove any of the water from the bucket without removing part of the drop too.

So what’s my point? you may be asking yourself…

Well, here it is.

The universe is made up of energy. Energy in many different forms. If you change the form of the energy you don’t remove the energy, just change it. So, that being said… The energy that makes up the any living thing’s “spirit” (for lack of a better term) is housed in a physical shell. When that spirit flame is no longer housed in the physical shell (no matter what the reason – death of course being one of those reasons) then the spirit becomes energy again and reunites with the universal pool of energy. When a spirit enters another physical shell it draws from the spirit or energy pool that is the universe.

Since you cannot remove the whole spirit energy, just like you cannot remove the whole drop of water once it is put in the bucket of water, the energy that becomes spirit is made up of not only the universal energy that is out there, but the universal energy WITH the previous spirit energy.

Which in a sense means that re-incarnation is possible, just not like we think. It is the collective energy that has mixed that inhabits the new physical shell. Thus making the phrase “All is one and one is all” more true that ever.

And not from a religious standpoint. Not from a God-like or high power standpoint. But from a very simple physics/energy standpoint.

And to extend that farther… There is no “God” just the universal All/One from where we came from and where we go back to as energy. Never disappearing, just changing. And change is the one true constant.

We don’t need someone to tell us right from wrong. We don’t need moral codes to make us just. We don’t need the fear of eternal damnation to keep us honest and good. We just need to take responsibility for our own actions. We know what is right and wrong. We just need to not only know it but OWN it. We don’t need to hide behind scapegoats (the devil made me do it – it’s not my fault) and live with the consequences of our actions.

They say the truth will set you free. That is a truism. If you live taking personal responsibility for your actions then you live a truly free life. For you will know that if you do something – whether right or wrong (subjective I know but for this concept live with the idea of the opposites) – then you and you alone understand that the consequences of your actions are yours to bear. There is no self-victimization when there is personal responsibility. There is no scapegoat. There is freedom in knowing you did something because you it was your choice and you accept the consequences.

And that, my dear people, is more truthful and freeing than any prayer or religion can ever be. You are the sole owner of your spirit while it resides in your physical shell. Once it is released it once again returns to the universal energy pool to be used in some form or fashion again. No penalties, no punishments, no heaven, no hell. No sin. Just the circle of life and energy that is this universe.

About ynnarie

Lynn Salisbury grew up in the rural town of McGrath, Minnesota. After graduating from McGregor High School in the mid 1980’s, she moved to the Twin Cities. Lynn spent her 20’s and 30’s working like the average person, never imagining the calling that awaited her. But those two decades of working, learning, growing, led to the day a friend challenged Lynn to write. Lynn met that challenge and never looked back. Now she draws from her life’s experiences and creative mind to weave stories. Stories about different worlds, different lives, different perspectives. If you ask her about her life, Lynn will tell you it’s been rather simple and sometimes boring. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that it’s been a bit more exciting than that. Lynn has done everything from designing clothes ranging from prom and wedding dresses to drag queen attire and everything in-between, became a registered, ordained Pagan minister in the state of Minnesota, to creating a group, on a social media site, of fans devoted to her favorite football team that has more members than most medium sized towns. Lynn still lives in the Twin Cities area, enjoying the changing seasons, spending time with family, working, and writing. She will admit she hasn’t found her genre niche yet, and she secretly hopes she never does, leaving the possibilities wide open for any type of story that formulates in her head, mixed with a bit of muse inspiration, to spill out into the written word. She writes what she would want to read, having taken to heart a piece of advice she once heard. And she feels blessed and grateful for the chance to share her stories with the world. As the mother of three amazing, beautiful and strong daughters, Lynn knows that even when the world seems the darkest, they are her light. And she never forgets what an honor and privilege it is to be their mother. “If you haven’t had your ‘a-ha’ moment today, you haven’t been paying attention.” – Lynn Salisbury
