Knowing something is there is half the battle. Einstein might have been wrong about the speed of light, but we have devastating proof of the energy hidden in matter. All we have to do is look in that direction to see what we are not seeing. The incandescent substratum of our heart, or the heart of another, has been there from the beginning, but we ascribe little importance to it or chalk it up to imagination. But we know it’s there. And knowing unlocks the door. Knowing lets us see behind the veil.
It doesn’t take a lot of faith to know that matter is mostly empty space, that molecules and atoms have mass but no substance. What we call the things we see, the solids in our life, are more similar to a hologram than they are to a brick wall. Held in suspension by a Thought, pulsing with power at a rate that only makes them seem opaque. One wonders if it is simply a question of timing that holds the universe in place, not gravity at all. Periodicity. Scintillating matrix. Om. The Word.
The miracle is that Light responds to thought. Light – life made visible. Moving, flowing, shining – animating the world. IT knows exactly what to do and how to do it. There is no end to It’s Imagination. It looks to us for new ideas, new forms, combinations and counterpoints, dynamisms with which to create brighter worlds. We are the spinning top set to spin forever, a Projection offsprung, infused with hope, filled with potential, ravenous for experience. Human spirit = Holy Spirit, but can we see it?
Imperfection is Perfection half-hidden. It takes courage to see it, a luminous heart. We say that we “believe” in life, but why is it always something separate? Why do things have to be powered from without? Does food sustain us? Is light external to our senses? Do we need some thing to live? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. The heart knows what the eyes cannot see. It’s when we think we know what’s there that we see nothing at all. As though we have to tell the world what it is. Or ourselves.
It takes light to see. That which is true about light is true in the spiritual as well as in the physical. As above, so below. No metaphors here. If something is spiritually correct, it must be scientifically correct. If something is scientifically correct, it must be spiritually correct. God is real. We cannot separate God from matter. The Word was made flesh, and we can’t change that. The energy within a system is the real part. All else is appearance, subject to change.
