Light and Darkness (Breathing Together 5–The Multiverse is Mental 6)

Light and Darkness

Holy Art Thou, Lord of the Multiverse,

Holy Art Thou, Whom Nature hath not formed,

Holy Art Thou, Infinite and Omnipotent One,

Lord of Light and Darkness . . .

Amen!

 

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void, and Darkness was over the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.  And God said, Let there be Light, and there was Light. And God saw that the Light was good.  And God separated the Light from the Darkness. God called the Light Day, and the Darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the First Day.”  –Genesis 1:1-5

 

As we probe ever deeper into the illuminated, expanse of our Universe we find

mystery within mystery.  Countless multitudes of galaxies containing

innumerable stars shining forth with Limitless Light from the Infinite Void!

 

Expanding, accelerating outward from Infinite Singularity,

All energy, all potentiality, unified field, no duality, no multiplicity,

Energy becoming matter, matter taking form, form assuming structure,

Structure expressing Mind, coding Life, giving meaning, occulting secrets,

Cosmic wind, prana, breath of fire/life, flowing, energizing,

Gravity waves upon waves rushing ever outward, space-time distortions,

Waves washing upon countless shores of countless worlds,

Drawing together multitudes of minds, inspiring multitudes of thoughts . . .

 

The Darkness, binding together, pushing apart,

The Darkness, not emptiness, not nothingness,

The Darkness, absence of Light, receiver of Light,

The Darkness, yielding to Light, illuminated by Light,

 

Once consumed by Darkness mistaken for evil,

Twisting, writhing tendrils swelling up from unfathomable depths,

Once overwhelmed by Darkness misunderstood as adversary,

Darkness created, its purpose, sanctuary of Light,

Without Light, only Darkness, without Darkness, only Light,

 

Nothingness, Limitless Nothingness, Limitless Light

Coexistence, duality, interplay, interdependence, diversity . . .

The Sound of Silence

 

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I, you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence

Simon & Garfunkel

“Nothing comes before the Deity—not good or evil. The Divine Itself is the beginning, an eternal nothingness. The Creator is nothing and everything and is one Will in which lies the whole world and all of creation. In the Divine all is eternal and without beginning in equal measurement. The Creator is neither Light nor Darkness, neither Love nor Hate, but the eternal Oneness.”

Jacob Boehme–The Teutonic Theosopher

“. . . and the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not . . . .” John 1:5 KJV

God said that the Light was good, but He never said that the Darkness was bad!

 

Peace, Shalom, Namaste
