Is my Body the Microcosm of the Macrocosm that is the Universe?

As I have been connecting with greater depth and awareness to my body, I can feel the shifts and the changes – the delicate and powerful way that each moment impacts upon the next. This has been an ongoing relationship for me since my mid-forties and one that has been forever unfolding.

As human beings dwelling on this planet it does not seem to be unusual that we hit a point in our lives where everything comes to a stop – more often than not it is not a natural stop but more of a grinding halt where the body speaks loud and clear and we become aware of the abusive way we have been living and how long we have been ignoring the amazing blessing that our body is. Quite often it is a point where mentally we no longer feel able to cope with life.

I feel more and more that the way I treated my body was not supportive or loving to the point of abuse – I had regular migraines and was quite often constipated and this was more apparent at weekends or on holiday when I stopped the drive of daily life and when there was space for my body to make itself heard and when I took time to listen to my body. As I allowed my body to speak with greater clarity, I also realised that I was not the only one and in truth there were many like me. We seem to have an ‘ideal’ or ‘belief’ that no matter what, we must keep going – that to stop would be unthinkable as that might possibly offer us a moment of connection whereby we might feel a sense of the deep disregard.

What is it about us that we allow this continual and ongoing abuse – without which our soul would have greater freedom to access our body, whereby our body could surrender to a natural rhythm?

So if I was no different from many others, why did I not accept life the way it was – the ‘normal’ that seemed to be the way everyone lived in varying degrees? I felt this ‘something’ deep within that told me there was another way and at this point I wasn’t sure what. It was a murmuring as though I had a deep voice within that was offering me the truth, even when I wasn’t ready to hear it.

Gradually over the years this has all changed as I have unsubscribed from the patterns and behaviours that had been driving me and allowed my body to find its own way through the miasma of ideals and beliefs that seem to be threaded throughout our lives and are the hindrance to our natural way of being, and I feel this is a forever unfolding as I continue to evolve.

As I have refined and redefined my relationship with my body, I have expanded my understanding of myself – and more latterly of the Universe. I no longer feel separate from the Universe – it feels as though there is a constant conversation not only between my body and me but one that takes place and is ongoing between each of us and a greater wisdom as we learn and understand more and more that we are part of something magnificent, and yet at the same time a reality that reveals itself the deeper we connect.

Are we alone with these feelings or is there something greater and grander at work and far beyond our human imagination – and are we a part of this? Is there something calling us all back home? I have felt a connection to the Divine in varying degrees for all of my life, but now as I delve into my innermost I am beginning to understand that we are not alone on this planet but are an integral part of a relationship between our bodies (the microcosm) and the splendour that is forever reflected back to us by the Universe (the macrocosm). We are indeed an indelible part of the Magic of God – all those everyday occurrences that at times we discount until a moment comes where we no longer are able to doubt the true power that is passing through us all of the time and we can feel God calling us to return once more to who we truly are.

Through the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom as presented by Serge Benhayon, I have come to understand that each tiny movement has an impact on the whole that is our forever expanding Universe. This may seem astounding to some, but this has been my experience – that the more I opened up to this feeling, the more it made sense. I could feel how if I went into a room and was insensitive to my surroundings in the way I moved that there would be a ripple effect on others: somehow we all know deep down that our natural way is one of stillness and steadiness and yet we often feel pulled out by the drive and motivation that feeds a way of living that is both inharmonious and not living in unison with the world around us.

When we move with ourselves in harmony we can feel that this offers others a space to move likewise – they open up to the quality we have offered – or sometimes not. These moments of stillness can be quite unnerving to someone who is used to living in constant drive and without any moments to re-connect back to the natural rhythm of the body within.

The connection and relationship with my body has been enormously supported by having sessions with Esoteric Practitioners, who have each offered a different angle and approach to support me to change the old momentum that has been in my body for a very long time. I have always been offered a depth of honesty and love that until this point I had not knowingly experienced. Through building and surrendering to an innate sensitivity and deepening this relationship with my vehicle of expression I feel I am approaching the gateway to the soul – to be able to expand this relationship beyond my body and to connect to the sacredness within that we all hold in our essence.

I feel as though I am only touching the tip of the iceberg as I explore my understanding of myself and the Universe, and I am aware that having taken the first few tentative steps in this exploration that I no longer have the option to reverse this process – that the Laws of the Universe that govern our movements will unfold and expand as I become a participant whereby I become an equal partner – no more and no less – of the magnificent plan that is our undeniable future.

Surrendering my body to this inspiring and intimate relationship between it and the Universe allows me to feel the support and the continuous offering of evolution from the pulse that is calling us to return to a way of living that is indicative of the harmonious space that is always waiting for our return.

  1. To me there is no doubt that there is something within us that quietly questions the choices we make even before we have made them seemingly. But how many of us actually stop to listen or do we silence that voice by eating and drinking to avoid what actually cannot be avoided at all – the return to our soul. At some point the spirit gets to feel that everything it has tried and I mean everything has been a complete waste of time and effort, it’s like feeling sick after eating that last piece of chocolate cake you really didn’t want it because you are so stuffed but you have it any way. After many turns around the sun acting out the same process you will discover that eating that last piece of chocolate cake wasn’t worth it and then you will move on to the next challenge and the next until you have mastered everything and then the great adventure really begins.

  2. We’ve created a million methods to dice and slice and seperate but nothing can obliterate the simple fact that everything is unified and deeply interconnected. When you see science delve into atoms and cells you can’t deny they are mirrors of the stars.

  3. The anti-dote to drive: “Surrendering my body to this inspiring and intimate relationship between it and the Universe allows me to feel the support and the continuous offering of evolution from the pulse that is calling us to return to a way of living that is indicative of the harmonious space that is always waiting for our return.”

  4. I am still learning to let go of the moments of drive that seem to come in to take over my day to day. I am tackling this in increments – observing, feeling when it comes in and then catching it as early as I can and then making a choice (not always easy due to the past accumulated choices) to not do it the same way again. And the more I am connected the easier it is to drop the drive and work with connection and a knowing of what is truly needed. And this then leaves no space for any drive. But it is a process as the drive just seems to keep sneaking in! And so I see it like a game, catch it stop it and re-imprint, over again as many times as needed till such time I know that the natural rhythm is solid in place and there is only purpose operating through me.

    1. Lucy this is gold – for essentially the macrocosm lies within the microcosm and when the microcosm expresses the macrocosm from within, the universe expands.

  5. Susan you ask a really great question
    “What is it about us that we allow this continual and ongoing abuse – without which our soul would have greater freedom to access our body,”
    I feel from all that I have learnt over the years of knowing Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine that it is our spirit that has invested so heavily into creation rather than living in co-creation which would be with our soul it doesn’t want to admit it has made a huge blunder that creation isn’t it. We could say it comes to a realisation it has back the wrong horse. I feel that we get to a point where the spirit feels that it is no longer in control that is when it fights back the hardest and if we do not stay steady it has the capacity to catapult us deep into creation again.

  6. If we considered that each and every movement has a ripple effect then would we move differently? Would we be more aware? I would, in fact I am when I am choosing to be aware of it. Yet this is not taught to us when we are young, at home or at school and therefore we are irresponsible with our movements and actions. What if we expended this to our thoughts as well 😯heavens – that would put the cat amongst the pigeons 🤣

  7. Deeply beautiful Susan, thank you for sharing that we too are a magnificent part of the grandness of the Universe.

  8. You ask the question Sue
    “is there something greater and grander at work and far beyond our human imagination – and are we a part of this?”
    For me I have always know there is more to us than we care to admit that we have encased ourselves in a bubble and so have removed ourselves from the truth of the grandness we come from and are a part of. This I feel is the core of our unrest and dissatisfaction many of us have with life.

  9. Knowing we’re much more than physical body and our particles are of the same quality as the universe and stars connects us something much grander. Beautiful to be held in equal harmony with the universe.

    1. Yes, it feels like we are being held by something far grander than ourselves and never alone. It supports us to also detach from the emotional turmoil of life and find a more steady way to be.

  10. My mind is the greatest obstacle to allowing the soul’s wisdom to be heard and felt. It doesn’t like the discipline of learning a different way to be and being responsible for the quality of thoughts and movements. I now know and love the moments of stillness and connection which feel so harmonious and expansive. We are part of a much grander whole.

    1. Bernadette I agree with you that our mind is the greatest obstacle to allowing the soul’s wisdom to be heard. We have been taught from young to operate from our mind at the expense of our bodies and this has hindered our natural way of being in connection to our bodies.

  11. Simply acknowledging that our bodies do have an intimate relationship with the universe is the start of experiencing a remarkable wisdom and vitality in us that is irrespective of our age, gender and even level of wellness.

    1. Absolutely Matilda, once we appreciate this fact that we are an integral part of the bigger picture and our relationship with the Universe, we can feel the responsibility of our reflection within this vast system.

  12. When I am in a drive, my body is hardened and I am usually very impatient and reactive to what I see and tend to judge people. However, when I first start by reconnecting to my inner heart my movements that follow are more flowing and gentle. I am open and let people in. I am patient and understanding, loving and deeply caring.

  13. Relinquishing our old ways is something like eliminating those negative post on Facebook they can keep coming and it is up to us to redefine our reference points to who we are so that what ever is thrown at us is like water of a ducks back as nothing will stick.

      1. Absolutely Lucy, as the slightest reaction takes away our ability to re-imprint, so it is great to be opportunistic and eliminate negativities the moment we clock them entering our being.

  14. “Through the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom as presented by Serge Benhayon, I have come to understand that each tiny movement has an impact on the whole that is our forever expanding Universe.” Beautiful Susan. Taking responsibility for our actions, for they affect the whole – something I wasn’t consciously aware of before attending Universal Medicine presentations, but as soon as I heard this teaching my body knew it was true.

    1. I had not considered this level of responsibility before Universal Medicine but it has offered me an internal connection that has re-sparked an inner knowing that feels very old – as old as the stars 🙂

  15. “When we move with ourselves in harmony we can feel that this offers others a space to move likewise –” Yes it feels beautiful to move feeling ‘full’ of ourselves, walking with grace. When I see others moving like this I cannot but be inspired.

  16. Untangling and freeing oneself from behaviour patterns and “the miasma of ideals and beliefs that seem to be threaded throughout our lives” is to remove the chains that keep one fettered in a cage away from one’s true self.

  17. The more we accept this immutable truth that we are an integral part in the whole Universe, the more we come to realize that our every thought, word and movement contributes to the quality of the whole and so the question arises – what quality do we want to be a part of? Absolutely harmonious or chaotic destruction?

  18. Now that is what I call truly living ‘As I have refined and redefined my relationship with my body, I have expanded my understanding of myself – and more latterly of the Universe. I no longer feel separate from the Universe – it feels as though there is a constant conversation not only between my body and me but one that takes place and is ongoing between each of us and a greater wisdom as we learn and understand more and more that we are part of something magnificent, and yet at the same time a reality that reveals itself the deeper we connect.’ #insiping ✨

  19. When we connect to and appreciate miracles inside our bodies it can support us to have some idea of the immensity of the Universe we live in and its grand cycles that we are immutably a part of, an immensity that is too big for us to fully comprehend any other way.

  20. “..this was more apparent at weekends or on holiday when I stopped the drive of daily life and when there was space for my body to make itself heard and when I took time to listen to my body.” This is very true, I hear often that people get ill in their holidays and then complain about the bad luck. But what if it’s not bad luck but our bodies showing us that how we are living is not supporting it?

    1. If you look at the number of cruise ships that offer the excess of everything and the outbreak of diseases like the Norovirus. Is an example of what happens when we don’t support our body.

  21. “What is it about us that we allow this continual and ongoing abuse – without which our soul would have greater freedom to access our body” And perhaps that is the name of the game, because when we stop the abuse, we open the door to our soul and a whole other way of life that requires us to be fully responsible for our emotional responses, thoughts, attitudes and actions, bringing a depth and purpose to life that our wayward behaviours have no place in at all.

    1. “What is it about us that we allow this continual and ongoing abuse?” We’ve collectively and en masse forgotten who we are that’s what. But we shall collectively and en masse remember again, and when we do none of us will even entertain the idea of abuse let alone allow it to take place.

  22. “I feel as though I am only touching the tip of the iceberg as I explore my understanding of myself and the Universe” So true Susan. There is so much more for us to re-discover about our selves and understand about the eternally expanding Universe we live in, life long learning.

  23. The universe is space, which is made up of gases and particles this to me is like a huge web of connective tissue. We are made up of the same particles of the universe that is an undeniable fact. So if we are made up of these particles we must be the same as the space in the universe, the universe is the body of God so therefore we are part of God which is why it has been termed in the past that we are the sons of God, actually we are ourselves Gods; we must be if you take this all the way to its conclusion. If we are made of the same particles as God then we are him and he is us.

  24. Opening myself up to the conversation that’s taking place between me and the universe is something from reading this I’m inspired to do. I’ve heard the expression not playing small and have shied away feeling oh that’s too much responsibility, but really it’s not. It’s simply being open, humble and letting the conversation with the universe be heard and felt; expressing from this point and not from the smallness of thinking it’s only about me and that I’ve got to come up with the goods rather than allowing being part of the wonders of the universe to be expressed through me.

  25. “As I have refined and redefined my relationship with my body, I have expanded my understanding of myself …” The most amazing gift offered to us by the work of Universal Medicine, palpable tools that enable us to re-connect to our body and inner wisdom and hence know our selves by the multitude of Universal qualities that flow through us.

  26. ” I no longer feel separate from the Universe” and when we do, we never again feel isolated or alone knowing our equal place and connection with it.

    1. Currently I feel incredibly held and supported by the Universe. I feel that there is an unspoken dialogue going on between us but not so much that I am separate to the universe, more that I am an integrated piece of itself being supported to move in a particular way. And that way feels like a continual reabsorbtion back into itself.

  27. Many people have those stop moments where they have an opportunity to reevaluate the life they are leading. Something shifts within us and suddenly the ‘normal’ way of life doesn’t feel so normal after all.
    Then we have a choice to listen to our inner voice or dismiss it and go deeper into ‘normal’
    This is called free will, I call it the game of snakes and ladders because that choice once made could be life changing or not.

  28. “I have come to understand that each tiny movement has an impact on the whole that is our forever expanding Universe.” Illustrating the immense responsibility we have in this world to take care of the quality of each ripple we make as they wash over everything in their path, people and all.

  29. So much is offered in these words ‘…this was more apparent at weekends or on holiday when I stopped the drive of daily life…’ if we are in a ‘drive’ like this in our daily life and it covers up so much introducing stop moments allows us the opportunity to be aware of our body and it’s ways of communicating to us once more.

    1. Drive feels like a locomotive train in my body and my body feels like it’s crushed under it’s mechanical wheels. It leaves my body aching, especially across the backs of my shoulders and up into my neck. I am practicing recognising when I go into drive or anxiety and to the best of my ability getting myself out. I have been using very gentle connective tissue movements to help me to reconnect back to a deeper and truer quality.

  30. The universe is so vast, almost beyond my comprehension. I saw a lovely picture of the sun, and smaller planets and then the tiniest one and we are a miniscule speck on that one, but we all make a difference and are connected to the whole.

    1. Which totally turns upside down the often quoted belief that as one person we cannot make a difference. We so can and do with our every movement. So what is the quality we choose?

  31. When we study the anatomy and physiology of a human cell we gain access to the most extraordinary microcosm of activity taking place within us that does not, thank goodness, rely on our conscious instruction to function, but responds instead to the deeper rhythms and intelligence of the Universe that quietly flows through us all day long.

  32. ‘It was a murmuring as though I had a deep voice within that was offering me the truth, even when I wasn’t ready to hear it.’ This resonates with me also Susan. I also felt that I was looking for the truth but only ever founds pieces of it until more recently.

  33. Choosing to surrender our bodies to an ever deepening relationship with the universe offers a glorious expansion if we are willing to go there.

    1. Having just started a new job and finding myself going through periods of going into anxiousness about keeping on top of the workload and sorting things out quickly I can feel how easy and normal it is for most of us to not experience the expansion that we actually are because we are in an almost permanent state of contraction. When you consider that emotions are also a form of contraction and how emotional most of us are, it easy to see why we are so oblivious to the deeper aspects of life. We choose to live in a way that keeps our bodies in contraction which is the very thing that limits our understanding and experience of life down to a thimble full of what amounts to false information.

  34. Has anyone had a random thought just pop into their heads as if from nowhere and then wonder where did that come from? The thing is we think that our thoughts are our own and no one has access to them but in reality, we all have access to everything because we are connected energetically. So, knowing this brings in a greater responsibility to what thoughts we entertain and what thoughts we say no to.

      1. That is a great analogy Steve and also so very true. Simply put that is how it exactly is. This completely takes away us having ownership of our thoughts, which of course is not a get out clause but definitely exposes so called intelligence.

      2. Can you hum! a few bars of that Steve? Ha! Ha! Jokes aside. As sometimes we get interruptions or static and reinterpretations as we get closer to the true vibration that “plays within,” and the longer we connect to that “music” the greater the awareness becomes so we can deepen with less distractions.

    1. So many people feel at the mercy of their thoughts but the truth is we are actually setting ourselves up to receive the thoughts that we do. And how we set our thoughts up is through our movements. Someone who is knelt on the pavement with their forehead on the ground asking for money will find it almost impossible to have thoughts that are full of self worth and positivity. Similarly someone who lives life with an elongated spine, relaxed muscles and an open chest will most likely not be plagued with self doubt and negative thoughts. How revelatory will this fact be when introduced into psychiatry, mental health, psychology and also just our everyday living way.

  35. When I connect to the fact that I’m not an isolated piece in the whole I live in, I can’t but feel the humbleness of being part of the Universe grandness, which holds me in equal harmony with others.
