This is not a dress rehearsal… Derp! Or the history of everything! Yay!

The Universe is 13.8 billion years old. How it all came about brighter minds are still piecing together. A myriad of things happened in those 13.8 billion years. Galaxies were born, and Solar Systems set into motion. One of those galaxies,the Milky Way. Our lonely little solar system, started its continuous trek around the sun. Planets went round and round, slowly cooling enough to not resemble blast furnaces, and a little can do planet by the name of Earth saw its first form of life. A few billion years after it formed out gases and star-dust floating around in the cosmic soup. A FEW BILLION YEARS after its perfect formation, and perfect positioning from the sun!

The Cambrian period happened. This consisted of Trilobites, and cruddy little bacteria. Things went on (I’m skipping whole periods of time here…) and life got a little bigger, and a bit smarter. The Dinosaurs came on the scene in the Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. They died leaving behind their rotting bodies so we could drive our big cars, all the while burning their essence. YAY!! Making this place a lot hotter.

After the Dinosaurs, and a very long period of time, humans (or I should say our genetically distant ancestors) come on to the scene. We played with fire, ate berries, cooked a squirrel or two,

built some pyramids, had some wars, lopped off some heads, had some more wars, Steve Jobs started Apple out of his garage… Again I am jumping ahead a little. And here we are! Crazy!

Our planet spins around a gigantic ball of fire, in a galaxy that is hurtling through the Universe. It is a fricken miracle you are reading this right now! It is a miracle that we are conscious, and breathing! Every single second of your life in the grand scheme of things should not have happened…

Now… Tell me why you are afraid to reach your full potential…? Tell me again why you are too scared to be your true self around other people? Tell me why you can’t tell that person that makes your life a living hell to go piss up a rope? Or why you can’t tell that special person that you love them?

You still have some time on the Earth… Everything in this Universe happened with the probability equal to a roll of the dice. You have nothing to lose!

10 Reasons you are loved

1) You are alive. Think about it… You are alive and conscious. The sun came up today and kissed your face with its rays. Maybe you woke up in a bad mood, but the sun was still there even if it was hiding behind a cloud. It was put there in a perfect spot just to shine on the earth just for you. You are loved.

3)You were put on this earth were access to food is made plenty full. If you don’t have access to food this is a man made problem, and the universe never intended this to be true. Most of the world will eat today. Be thankful for the food. You are loved.

The power that you have been given. Infinite intelligence, is just a word. You have to feel it, and know its there. Tap into it. You are loved.

8)You have eyes to see. You can see this beautiful dream we call life with the two projectors that are implanted on either side of your nose. You can see everything that is happening at this very moment. It shows you right now. Now! You are loved.

9)You are alive to see this present moment. You can change it or tweak it however you please. You can make it a utopia, or your own personal hell. But the universe always intended for you to be happy because you were made from love. Yes you are this powerful. Love everything and live now. You are loved.

10)You were made from love, from an amazing design. It functions on its own. it can be manipulated by man but it will always go back to its original function which is love. Take away everything that you think you are and you are left with love. You are perfection, you are love. Not because I told you, or a book told you, or someone says they know told you… But because the universe told you. It keeps telling you every second. Its telling you that you are loved right at this moment… Can you hear it? You are loved!
