The awakening is spreading so fast!
I recently caught a video on Huffpost in which the celebrity astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked, “What do you think is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?” The video is here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/12/most-astounding-fact-unive… His answer is one which should delight and empower metaphysicians for a long time, and I encourage you to watch the video.
In it, he talks about the molecular connection we share with the universe. As I understand it (which is to say, imperfectly), besides Helium, all of the elements in the periodic table have been ejected from dying stars. So, at the atomic level, we are made of the same stuff as stars.
It’s the kind of thing you just “know” when you hear it but that you may have not put into words so clearly yourself. And it is so juicy! From his answer you can derive so much of what esotericists, arcanists, and metaphysicians have pondered for millenia.
At the humanitarian level, his statement is an ultimate rebuttal to any sense of racial or religious separation. We are all composed of matter from the same supernovae. No matter what looks or sounds different about us, our origins are ultimately the same.
At an energetic level, it says a lot about the interaction between humans and energy. If you are able to visualize a galaxy, if you can imagine the swirling and spinning components of the solar system, then you are close to imagining the way human consciousness operates within the field.
I predict that we will find a consciousness, similar to our own, at the center of every “galaxy” there is – the galaxy of a single atom must be formed by a singularity of some kind, some thing that “needs” to have unity. (What is a black hole but ultimate Need?). Similarly, any identifiable collection of atoms must be pulled together or given identity by the Need which forms it.
So, there is a need for you. There is a need for the solar system we live in. For each galaxy and ultimately for the universe itself. Science will really be getting somewhere when it finds that singular need which gives the universe its identity, within which all known identities exist.
Did I just say that consciousness is need? Oh my.
Another really interesting thing I thought of after watching that video is that it gives a beautiful example of the regenerative, life-giving truth about death. These massive stars “died,” and from them we have been born.
For me, this is really significant Nothing separates us more from the Creator, from nature, from life itself than our fear of death. And yet stars much greater than our own Sun have died so that we may be born. What will arise from the ashes of your death? Can you empower it with gratitude for your life?
