You’ve probably noticed, there’s a lot of chaos in the world these days.
Things are changing fast and, for the most part, are unpredictable.
A global virus is testing the systems we have in place. Technology is evolving and creating new possibilities. Governments are in a frenzy, challenged to adapt and keep up.
The average joe/jane could feel uncertain about the times ahead. They might wonder what the end to all this will be and when things will go back to normal.
These people say they want things to go back to normal. But maybe they haven’t realized yet – this is the new normal.
Until things change again. Then, that will be the new normal. And so on.
So, there’s no practical use in longing for the past or worrying about the future. Things are always changing.
Sure, we may be experiencing a time of incredible disorder, and that may be a little uncomfortable. But we can find some peace knowing that wrapped around that tremendous ball of disorder is complete and utter harmony, keeping everything together.
Think about how the Big Bang is described—a massive explosion of unimaginable force, creating matter and propelling it outward to make the billions of galaxies of our vast universe.
Explosions by their nature are chaotic and unpredictable. However, this explosion was systematically creating with mathematical precision. Since the beginning of time, all the matter in the universe has been governed by precisely balanced laws and constants.
Within the chaos, there has always been order.
Universally speaking, everything has always found its balance. It’s just taken some time for us to recognize it.
“The universe is so well balanced that the mere fact that you have a problem also serves as a sign that there is a solution.”
