A MEDITATION ON THE SPACE BETWEEN

What do you see in the space inside this tiny shell. The whole shell is about 1 1/2 inches tall. Can you feel the history of events that wore it thin? Can you imagine the energies that have flowed through that gap? Or is it empty space? Is it different than the space around you? Or is it the same?

What do you see in the space inside this tiny shell. The whole shell is about 1 1/2 inches tall. Can you feel the history of events that wore it thin? Can you imagine the energies that have flowed through that gap? Or is it empty space? Is it different than the space around you? Or is it the same? There is only one thing.

           [This chapter concludes the “assignment” from my Spirit Guide, See Do, to examine the complexities of our mundane reality. The specific construct given me to examine was a hypothetical cube ¼ inch on a side, floating in the air about a foot in front of my face. This final meditation on our temporal reality will be followed by an examination of “See Do reality.”]

            And even if we insist on visualizing an entire atom with all of its constituent particles being whole and right there, they are impossibly small. One example is to see the nucleus of an atom as a pinhead in the center of a stadium. Out in the stands would be the electrons, much smaller than that pinhead.

            The rest is just empty space.              

            Empty “Space” full of “clouds of probabilities” that also have no individual history and that are not limited to any specific volume, or location, in Space or Time.

            I think I may be starting to see the value of this lesson.

            That is what I have been working on with this meditation. It has sent me down many paths of research and exposed me to many new and amazing ideas. I’ve read things about all these subjects in order to reach what is even now, the most rudimentary understanding, if I could be so bold as to label it “understanding” at all.

            And in between, I have been looking at other infinities. Infinities beyond the nearly incomprehensible complexity of “reality” inside our quarter-inch cube.

            As I’ve thought about it and walked around a bit today, I’ve come to understand that this meditation on the most basic reality is, in fact, just the beginning. This little cube of space in front of my face is a place where we might have thought not much was happening. But there is so much there. And then, to extend this line of inquiry into places where there obviously is more going on? Well, that is yet to come, I think.

            My mind goes to thoughts of living cells and molecules and the energies within those worlds. The complexity of an instant inside us. And I come back to the interconnectedness of everything.

           It’s mind expanding and tempting to start again. There is no Time. Time does not exist. But to us, this thing we call Time is all we can detect. There is only one thing. Everything is connected.

           I am told, by See Do, that the path to integrating all of this is through the complexity, through the infinities. Not through simplification. It is not a “concept” that you can hold in your hand, like a big number that you know, and can write, but have no true concept of. It is real. It is everything. And it is all, and all at once.

           This is the beginning. It is more than a simple exercise of the mind. It is a meditation that is always accessible now. Hold it all and you are closer to the truth.

           Take it with you and walk with it. Allow the complexity of the world into your heart. Into your True Being.

           With our mind we can travel beyond our senses. With our mind open we can reach greater sensitivity to all the movements around us. And through us. In True Being we can reach out.

           There is something here. And I am getting closer to it.

           And I am ready.
