The voice of the universe is everywhere.
In the trees. In stars. In the air.
In my heart. In my hair.
I listen to the wind move through the trees tickling leaves along the way. I hear the loneliness in them, the smallness of them. The universe is made of these. Bits and parts of somethings that make a whole.
We are one together. A breathing being is the universe. I witness its breath in the clouds. I feel the beat of it’s heart in the river. I touch its profoundness in the soft moss under my feet.
I feel so alive in this one very moment; I take in the million joys that spill over like a wave. It fills my valleys and makes them green again.
The voice of the universe speaks to me. Not in words but pure emotion. It speaks to me in brilliant birdsong and in the roar of the sea. It whispers in the Sunday breeze, knocking down fence posts to make me listen.
Once in a while the universe sends something so absolutely exquisite I can’t help but pause in splendid wonder. Once in a while can be everyday if I let it…
We are art.
Uniquely us and uniquely beautiful.
Living, growing, changing.
Becoming and unbecoming..
The way we do this says more about ourselves than anything.
It’s the way we live our lives and how we impact others–this is our testimony.
What we share with the world becomes our art.
We can inspire and enlighten. We can encourage, empathize and understand.
We can shine a light for others and become all the more beautiful.
It is the soul. The heart. The essence.
This is the best art. The loveliest. the most divine. The closest to heaven.
“Your brokenness is the universe’s way of realizing that perfection is not complete.
Your wounds and flaws, however inconsolable and unforgivable, are a conspiracy of a finer consideration, the triumph of an inexpressible art form, the urge of the cosmos to love herself more intimately. More profoundly.”
~Adebayo C. Akomolafe
