YOUniverse – the universe within you

Let me ask you something, what do you think of when you hear the word, Universe? Does your mind, your eyes, your minds-eye want to gaze up and out upon the skies?

That is what I found myself doing until I came to understand that the Universe is within. It is within each and every one of us.

When we grasp what that really means, we stop looking outside of ourselves for answers. All answers are within.

"My soul is the mirror of the Universe and my body is its frame." ~ Voltaire

My whole point to this post is the fact that the Universe is inside of you and me….inside all of us. So instead of looking outside of yourself for your wants/desires/answers, why not make a conscious effort to turn within to your YOUniverse?

Look within and find the hidden jewels to life.

"The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

The Universe is truly inside of you and what does that mean? Are you exploring the world within? Have you discovered your outside world to be a reflection of your inside world?

“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the Universe, so the soul…”
~ Hermes Trismegistus 

Think about it. Let me know what you are feeling. Does my post of the YOUniverse resonate? I know it took me a while to begin to understand what that really means and I am still discovering the magnitude of it all.



  1. I would have said the stars in the shy to start, but after my transition that you have also witnessed via my blog posts, I can certainly resonate to this post, in what you are saying. 🙂


  2. That’s beautiful, dear Ren, and it very much aligns with our concept that The Supreme Being is everywhere in the universe, as He is the universe, and His presence is in each one of us. Being mindful of it prevents unkindness towards others.
