I was talking to a young woman today and we were discussing event horizons in our everyday life.
For some crazy reason I like the thought of an event horizon. An event horizon is defined as: In general relativity, a boundary in space-time beyond which events cannot affect an outside observer. In layman’s terms, it is defined as the point of no return. The most common case of an event horizon is that surrounding a black hole.
If I’m understanding correctly, the idea is something gets close to a black hole and at some point – past the point of no return – it disappears. Now after that no one really knows what happens because no one outside the black hole can observe what is going on inside it.
Who knows maybe all the black holes are how we make it to the afterlife – to the worlds from which we came and to which we are going? Maybe the mystery is some huge dynamic spiral? Nassim Haramein talks about the dual torus and black wholes. I wonder?
Back to my friend. We were discussing our everyday lives – times when we go past the point of no return.
Sex done well will take us past the event horizon. Childbirth. Falling in love, sometimes past the event horizon, sometimes not – tattoos – when we see ourselves a little more clearly, no going back to the old view – you say something hurtful and there is no taking it back – I’m sure you can add to the list.
So, there are some real event horizons in our lives – times when we have gone past the point of no return. Some ecstatic – some not so much.
At other times we think we have passed the event horizon when, in fact, there is no event horizon. It can be freeing to recognize the difference.
Have you ever been in a relationship and felt you just couldn’t leave, as though you had no choice? Or, maybe a career or work situation where you felt trapped? Perhaps a health issue? Dependence on drugs or alcohol? In these situations you truly have not passed the point of no return. It can feel that way at times. Usually fear is in the mix of thoughts someplace.
There is no event horizon and no black hole in these areas of life. Remember you are free – to choose again. And, again, and, again . . .
