Contemplation on the “No”thing of Space (155)- Updated
Sabian Symbolism (155) : A man becomes aware of nature spirits and normally unseen spiritual energies.
Our universe is vast, filled with many mysteries of life. One in particular that has perplexed people for eons has been the area of space most often referred to as “the void.” It is the place where time seems to stand still. It is a vast “no”thing (42/15/27). The Sabian symbolism reflects perfectly the meaning of the word.
Sabian (42) :A young couple walks down main street window shopping.
As I contemplated this new world in meditation, I began to understand its purpose. It is the home to absolute stillness. It is black yet not empty. It is light without vibration. It is the atom without motion. It is potential without the activating force of sound. It is balance – the “no”thing” before the “some”thing. It is a window shoppers paradise. It is amazing.
The brilliance of our creator matches the idea of the “no”thing with these word energies. It is the “architect” (42/15/27), and the space”ship” (42/15/27) of creation. Which is why this area is often called “the void-” (38) a perfect match for the vehicle of creative force the “chariot.” (38) It is a “doorway” (38) for “creative/psychic/energy.” (38) It is “prayer” (38). The “no”thing is Sabian symbolism : A sleigh without snow.
However, a sleigh without snow does not move! ”No”thing is still. It is the time before motion. It is the inactive vehicle of creation. So this vast area of “no”thing is a place to window shop- a place where the architect of creation can find the vehicle to create. No surprise as “snow” (17) is God (17). Without the activating force of God, there is only a “chariot” or “prayer” that offers no reward or motion.
This place of “no”thing resides in our own minds as well. Through the power of meditation, through the joy of “sitting”, we too can find that clear, still place within, the architect of our mind, where we can enjoy the still and quietness of our inner space. Buddhists, and Yogis of Hinduism, have practiced this state of “no”thing for centuries, leading them to the understanding that we are all one. Outer space and inner space. You and me. The earth and the sky. All part of the great mystery of the “no”thing.” It is a great observatory of thought without the force of action – a space where detachment rules and subjectivity languishes and disappears.
As you begin an exploration of this great “void”, you begin to learn its lesson.
“Experience is the world’s best teacher.” (155/65/90)
To fully understand the construct of the universe, it must be experienced. It is not enough to “know” a thing, you must sense it for yourself. Such is the experience of life on Earth. So the next time you question why you have come to this world of physical beingness, remember the guidelines of the universe. To know something is to experience it. If we are made in the likeness of our creator, then we must understand the “no”thing before we can create “some”thing.
So “take a leap of faith” (65), return to the “psychic source” (65) within and find “spiritual satisfaction.” (90) in the experience of the “no”thing.
Remember, you always have choices. Choose to anchor yourself in love.
