Our Universe (a meditation on the absolute and relative)

Always under construction  –  Constantly evolving!

A Meditation

By Rob Roman and Amanda Chen

space 1 lg

This is what we’re riding on. The Milky Way Galaxy. It’s only one of so many systems.

Whatever you believe in, God, a Higher Power, Science and Evolution, The Buddha Dharma, or Nothing at all, there is never an apple tree with only one apple, or a flower with only one petal.  If self-consciousness is the goal, there must be others out there.

There is a God for everyone, you just may define it differently than I do, or someone else does. We all came from the same origin, and we are all on the same path, universally speaking.

We have some powerful telescopes out there, and this is out there. Some kind of plasma. Who needs the dry scientific explanation. Intuitively we can know what it is, it’s made out of the same basic stuff that we are.

Even if it’s not interpreted in colors, there is energy and mass and movement here. A really tremendous amount of energy.  Our minds are powerful enough to tap that energy. All space and time can meet at the intersection of the human mind, no matter how distressed we are with finite and minute circumstances.

Here we are all one, and here, there is no separation, as we are removed further and further away form the particulars of our space and our time, and move into the infinity of all space and all time.

Only the human mind can grasp both the minute particulars of the here and now, and  the vast generalization of infinity. We coalesce the infinite within the finite and timelessness within time.

Is this time-lapse photography? I don’t want to spoil it by looking up what this is. Then I will be restricted by logical and studied interpretations. We can use our intuition to know what this is better than any scientist. We have a direct connection and we are directly related to this phenomenon.

My guess is that this is reading infrared or ultraviolet light. So we are seeing heat, movement, and direction. We are seeing concentrations of light and energy, cooling into mass and becoming distinct, separate, and relative.

The latest theory is that a failed planet or a mass of asteroids formed into a sphere and veered into the orbit of earth colliding and deforming earth, coming together again and forming the moon. Is life even possible without the moon? I never bothered to look that up.

They say the real cycle of the moon is 28 days, so our calendar should have 13 months x 28 days = 364 days. Starfish. Instead, we have different lengths of months with 28, 29, 30, and 31 days, leap years etc. Maybe 13 is not so unlucky a number. It’s a lucky number, though misunderstood.

Neil Armstrong said that when he went to the moon, what he really discovered was the earth.

The big blue marble. it’s a living organism, truth be told. When people first saw this photo, they were awestruck. It opened up a higher consciousness, and for some a higher responsibility. Is it just a human control fantasy to think we can control the earth? Maybe , if we need it to sustain human life.

Is this real? I don’t even know and I don’t recognize it. It’s just navigation on an ocean of space. Reality belongs to the perceiver, and the elements of perception. Cruising through the giant mind which is outer-space, the Universe is completely endless. No foundation, no edges, and no confines.

From a distance
You look like my friend
Even though we are at war

From a distance
I just cannot comprehend
What all this fighting is for

space 11From a distance
There is HARMONY
And it echoes through the land

And it’s the hope of hopes

It’s the love of loves

It’s the heart of every man

                    It’s the hope of hopes

                      It’s the love of loves

                      This is the song of every man.

God is watching us

                God is watching us

                           God is watching us

                                                      ………From a distance
