I need to write a letter to the Universe

I have been told I need to write a letter to the Universe but there are a few problems with this idea.

The first is that even before we get to what I am supposed to say I need to deal with the issue of the Universe. Who/what is this universe anyway – is it like the big stuff out there in the sky?
I have heard that there is a whole lot of rubbish floating around in space, I hope that is not included in the Universe I am supposed to be writing to – I am don’t mean the stars or planets or little speaks of flying rocks that always seem to bash straight into unsuspecting space ships in Star Trek, I mean human rubbish. I just googled rubbish in space and it is actually called space junk. The BBC site says “The current estimate is that there are over a million bits of debris orbiting the Earth. About 70,000 objects about the size of a postage stamp have been detected between 850 – 1,000 km above the Earth. They are probably frozen bits of nuclear reactor coolant that are leaking from old satellites.” To read more about this riviting topic you can go to the BBC site See and you did not think reading my blog would be like a veritable science lesson.

But back to the Universe, so if it is not the actual planets and stars and stuff (because as lovely as I am with my super pink hair I am not sure Saturn and Mars and the likes are all that interested in matters of my heart) that I am supposed to write to, is it some energy? I don’t know how to connect with some random energy. It is great and all and I know energy is all around us, but lets face it a tornado is also energy and I am not sure I want to trust a tornado with my letter either.

Or is it God, is it just that people don’t want to say God anymore as it might make some feel excluded so if we just say Universe no one get offended. If it is God does he need a list? I am not sure I even think there is a God anymore, I just can’t get God and science to match up anymore.

Or is it in fact just me I am supposed to write to, and the process of writing bring clarity of thought and helps one make sense of emotions? Maybe the process of thinking about things enough to write them down means that you have a clearer idea in your mind about what you want. Hahaha did I just say that I might be the Universe – I really do have a huge ego don’t I?

The next problem is that there seems to be conflicting advice as to what I am suppose to say. I hope we are all on the same page here and this letter is all about boys – I mean what the heck else would I be writing nebulous letters to the Universe about. I am sure you all knew that but just for clarity sake I thought I would just mention it. The one school of thought is that I am supposed to swear off men completely and that in telling the universe this in no uncertain terms would mean that it would be seen as a challenge. It seems to have worked for some.

The other idea is that I have to make a detailed list of what I want, I have to be specific and detailed. See now already this one has me feeling uncomfortable. I blogged about not liking lists here as I am not sure I ever put the right things on the lists I have written before

So there in a nutshell is my dilemma, I have a letter to write and I am not sure who I am writing it to and I have no idea what to say. Apparently it does not matter what you say you just have to mean it. Insert confused looking face here <----- ,

  1. I see the Universe as follows: It is everyone who can read, hear and talk. Everyone, people or aliens.

    I do not see God as the Universe, God is God and if you want to talk or write something to him, he is God and then you talk to Him alone. You address Him alone and not as a Universe. Yes, he is everything and all but then you address it to Him alone.

    Just my 2 cents of worth. Hope it helps.

  2. How about

    Dear Universe

    As I’m part of you, I’m sure you know what’s inside my heart and what I need and want. I would be grateful if you would help clarify it for me, as i’m a bit confused right now and don’t know what to ask for, from you.

    I would be grateful if you would also tell me a bit about yourself, cos I’m not quite sure who you are. My friend Damaria says she wants to believe you are the Christan God many churches speak about. But sometimes she wonders if you are more along the lines of Acheron, the Atlantean God in a novel by Sherrilyn Kenyon, and that you live right here on earth with us humans. That would sorta blow, because while he is a nice bloke, he sorta doesn’t like to interfere with people’s fates. Says just because he can change a person’s fate doesn’t mean he should; and spouts lots of stuff about free will. So whoever you really are, your help would be appreciated.

  3. Brand New Heavies – You Are The Universe

    You’re the future, and you’ve come for what is yours
    The hidden treasure, locked behind the hidden doors
    And the promise of a day that’s shiny new
    Only a dreamer, could afford this point of view
    But you’re a driver, not a passenger in life
    And if you’re ready, you won’t have to try ’cause

    You are the Universe
    And there ain’t nothin’ you can’t do
    If you conceive it, you can achieve it
    That’s why, I believe in you, yes I do

    You’re a winner, so do what you came here for
    The secret weapon, isn’t secret anymore
    You’re a driver, never passenger in life
    And when you’re ready, you won’t have to try ’cause

    You are the Universe
    And there ain’t nothin’ you can’t do
    If you conceive it, you can achieve it
    That’s why, I believe in you, yes I do

    You are the Universe
    And there ain’t nothin’ you can’t be
    If you conceive it, you can achieve it
    That’s why, I believe in you, and I believe in me

    (Yes I do
    Believe in you
    I do)

    You’re a driver, not a passenger in life
    And when you’re ready, you won’t have to try ’cause

    You are the Universe!

  4. Well, to my eye this is sort of a letter of intent. A letter directed to no one and everyone in general, telling the universe “This is who I am and ‘this’ is what I want.”

    I’d start of with a brief description of myself (I mean how does the universe know who you are?) and a little bit about what’s happening in your life right now (We all love a little general interest story). Then say what you want. Easier said than done I know, but start general and the details should flesh themselves out.

    Remember to end the letter on a good note.

    Just my 1c worth…

  5. Zola – I think there is a difference too
    Damaria – thank you
    Jane- i like the idea of being the universe
    Wenchy – no man – email me please then. Far too curious for you to leave that there with no more
    Barbara – now that would be ideal, but not so sure I want to read what the universe might actually tell me.
    Yme – but surely the universe if I am part of it knows who I am?
