Question: Can you give us a hint as to how to read the universal language?
Higgins: Yes. When we speak of the Universal Language we speak about one’s personal environment. Each one of you is a kind of magnet drawing each of life’s occurrences into one’s life. While your neighbor draws each of his experiences you attract yours. This occurs whether one is aware of one’s direct connection to one’s own life or not.
Because one’s thought patterns and the emotions one emits relative to their thoughts is directly related to the life experiences one attracts one can simply assess their surroundings at any given moment in time and deduce whether or not they spend most of their time thinking positively about life and creatively about life’s hiccups.
For example, look around at your work station, whatever that may be. Whether it is a desk, a garage, a studio, a truck…if it is neat and orderly then one may generally read that to mean life is chugging along nicely rather than out of control. If one’s work station is messy then aspects of one’s life are messy. On the other hand, if one’s work station is sterile then life may be a little boring or empty.
Let’s continue with this example. A painter may have what appears to be a disaster in their studio. In fact, this may translate into some difficult life situations. This does not preclude this same painter from being a brilliant painter. It simply is metaphor for this artist’s current thinking.
Whether one looks within their own closet or at the people who surround them or their financial situation the literal scene before them represents one’s current thoughts, words, actions and beliefs and their emotions about same.
Is it not true that when one drives very fast they must pay close attention to their driving to stay within their lane and be safe upon the road? A driver must make myriad small corrections as they zip along to prevent a negative outcome such as a collision. It is the same with life. One may make myriad small adjustments as they zip along in life thus preventing large negative life experiences. One does this by noticing their own life. If many nice things happen serendipitously in a day then life is likely going along in a positive fashion. If, on the other hand, many little annoyances arise during the day one may wish to address them. One does so by thinking creatively of solutions. Solutions do not ever involve someone else making change. We want to be especially clear upon that. Solutions involve only the solution thinker upper.
As a further example, let’s assume one is working on a plan. It is a brilliant plan and the achievement of it will make life for that one happier. It seems, however, that one is repeatedly foiled and for one reason or another the arrival of the achievement of that goal is slow in coming. One may gain succor from noticing small, sometimes tiny and seemingly unrelated events that indicate one is moving in the right direction. These brief life vignettes are wonderful lifters of the spirit of weary human travelers on Earth’s journey.
