Gravity and graves have one thing in common - they share a downward trajectory. Newton and the apple had a momentary fling that impacted upon humankind with gargantuan results. Where the theory of gravity led science is an old story of many twists and tales, not for the telling here, but now we are living in an era where Quantum is everywhere and everything at the same time, when lifting the lid on "What Is" sits at the forefront of scientific endeavour, as well as being the mission of many people on a spiritual path to wherever spiritual paths may lead. Not long ago, we didn't know much of what we know now. But now that we know more, we can safely surmise that the answers lead only to further questions, and so we go on down to the depths of truths we probably didn't know were there before.
To my mind, the synergy between these two trains of thought, juxtaposed though they may appear to be, is synchronous. While scientists search for Dark Matter, spiritualists (that is, people who subscribe to all kinds of theories that scientists would call Woo) are questing the dark depths of Self to come up with answers on, for example, what it means to be in 5D. Wanting to know what that coined term 'Enlightenment' actually relates to. How do we marry Dark Energy with human endeavour? Is it really rocket science after all? Or is it just a matter of common sense, given that yes, the Dark stuff's everywhere, making up something like 85% of the Universe (given a difficulty in estimating amounts of things you can't see), and it could even be said that Dark Matter is in your bedroom, should you be so inclined as to look for it.
Up in the far reaches of reality, we play for time. Some of you may, like me, spend a fair bit of your day trying to figure out how best to think, given that Right Ways of Thinking inevitably lead to the right kind of results. Today I was offered a lesson on lifetimes - what it actually means to forge a spiritual Contract, if such a thing exists, and of course you can't say it doesn't any more than you can prove it does. If there's a bridge between science and spirituality we are duly bound to find it in the course of explorations, if only because we are part of the Planet going through a process of change, which means (in an ideal world) some form of Ascension, and here we may safely bring in the context of Twin Flamedom, because people embroiled in fires of unmitigated, unrequited passion are growing exponentially in number and thus stand firm in being counted.
I don't buy for one minute the concept of Constraint, either in quantum mechanical contexts or in the collection of people who may be subject to TF incarceration. To claim that quantum mechanics doesn't apply to the full gamut of Everything it manufactures (including us) is utter bunkum, regardless of the math (which relies heavily on said Constraints). The Twin Flame movement is rather like a blue touch paper to spiritual wildfire, its match igniting a wave of revolutionaries tasked with the rather dubious duty of discovering what Love Actually Is. We know it's a far cry from chocolate box adverts and a million miles from traditional paradigms. We know it's a messy, painful process of elimination in which we crawl through Dark Nights and dance through uncertain days. Eventually, we're going to come out the other side a whole lot wiser - for all the wisdom we may collectively amass, we still may fall short of saving the world. But we're thinking about it. We're reaching a conclusion that the Soul we fell in love with is not necessarily the embodied person we face in particle format. In other words, we're discovering a difference between framework and form, between the essence of spirit and the manifestation of Being which that spirit eventually becomes. Hence the playgrounds of darkness, the ravages of torment one may bestow on another, the apparent discrepancy between the soul we come to love and the persona we are forced to deal with. Those cards are not of our choosing, any more than a meeting of minds can be said to be accidental. As one camp is delving into the quantum fields and fumbling with juxtaposed realities, so the other camp is pitched into territory equally unchartered to find that reality is not always as it seems - that Love is not what we were led to believe, and that we have to think differently now we've come this far, if we're to take our new-found faith in things we cannot see to any destinatiion that makes any sense at all. Good luck, fair souls, whichever side of the great divide you may occupy, for one side of the fence may not be greener than the other, but together we may yet set ablaze a paradigm where suns can shine.
