The Elegant Self

May 18, 2008
Scientists seek A Theory of Everything...an ultimate discovery that will tie all natural forces and matter together in a complete system. Several years ago I read a book about what many believe could be A Theory of Everything. The book was The Elegant Universe by physicist Brian Greene, and the theory...String Theory.

I fell in love with it immediately. Not, I admit, with the mathematics, for I am no mathematician...but as an Inner Poet. It captured my imagination. And beyond that, I saw it as a different kind of Unifying Theory - one that lifted the veil of the Universe and revealed the dynamics within the great web that make all life One. I do not pretend to speak as a scientist, but instead with poetic understanding, describing what I see and feel in the bones of my soul.

In String Theory it is proposed that all that is - that which lives deep within and beyond cells, molecules, atoms and quarks - reverberates from a multitude of strings. Identical strings with varying tension and vibrations that determine what kind of particle is formed, what force or matter is ulitmately created.

It is a beautiful vision...an orchestra of strings, vibrating in perfect yet unique rhythms, playing the music of the Universe.

With this vision, I offer a creation story...

From the void of the Absolute, through the Wisdom of the Godhead, a collection of strings once came together. Each carried within it a piece of Truth, of Beauty, of Goodness. The whole of the collection synthesized into a unique pattern, and then began to play...a melody like no other that had ever played before. From the music and the lyrics came the sinews of a Soul. Within the notes and words was placed a significant and purposeful piece of the Whole, a message that could be expressed only through that Soul.

So it is that each of us is a vibrational resonance of God. At the deepest level of our being we are the words and music of the Divine. From this we have come forth, and from our individual expressions have come that which makes us Human - our personalities and bodies, our stories, perspectives, cultures and experiences. In the presence of skin, the lyrics and the melody are quieted, often dulled, sometimes completely drowned out. But NEVER lost. It is this music, our Poetry, that is the yearning we feel within, forever drawing us forward, always toward our re-membering.

Every circumstance, relationship and experience - the light and the dark -is part of our poetry. Every emotion, thought and movement, a verse in our song. All offers us the opportunity to move into greater awareness, to know ourselves and experience the fullness of both our humanity and our Divinity. Only through awareness can we begin to open and to grow, to love, to give and to become...to ask...who am I? Who do I want to be? What qualities of Being am I designed to know and to express?

The embodied life is our opportunity to remember the purpose, the message, that was written into our Souls, and to share it with others. For only we can play our symphony.

Is Om not the sound of creation?

...Was it not said...in the beginning was the word...?

Hear the music. Dance your poetry.

Namaste.
