“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as in being able to remake ourselves.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

Nearly a hundred years ago, astronomer Edwin Hubble made the discovery that the universe we live in is not static, but rather exists in a continual state of expansion. And because we as human beings are an inseparable part of the rapidly expanding universe in which we are born, we too are constantly being called to expand.

The difference between us as individuals and the universe in which we live is that the universe has no choice about whether it will expand – it simply expands. But because we are born with the gift of free will, we have the ability to allow ourselves to expand, to identify the next version of ourselves that is longing to be expressed, and to consciously align with that expansion.
