I recently watched a Nova documentary entitled, The Fabric of the Cosmos in which they discuss what we used to think of as empty space. As it turns out, instead of being empty, physicists believe it's more like fabric - an elastic, relatable field that holds, supports, stretches, morphs, and who knows what else.
In the documentary, they explain a theory of how the moon revolves around the earth. In a graphic, they show the earth seemingly resting in what reads as the changing "surface" of space. The earth's presence creates an "indentation" or depression in this field which then the moon is drawn to rolling into and around.
So, while I was doing some yoga this morning, I found myself considering the space around me and wondering if rather than solely holding myself up, if I was actually being supported as well. Are things unseen conspiring to keep me in my orbit too?
I like the notion of empty space not being empty at all. Even when my life isn't going the way I like, if I let my thoughts settle, I can feel some sense of unidentifiable support around me. There are innumerable things that could play out in my life, including those of which we've been inspired to fear or look forward to. There are diseases, auto accidents, love relationships, new life, new opportunities but I believe there is something about this un-seeable field, which remains constant, that will always hold me, regardless - and you as well.
Lots of love,
From the Inside
