Today it was announced that scientists have found a great big nothingness in the universe. It isn’t a black hole or something that is too dark to be seen, it is literally “nothing there.” While they are contemplating the scientific meaning, I am considering the creative and spiritual meaning.
To me, the universe is the great artistic enterprise and whatever is in it, or not, has a message both for those who create and those who think about what Goddess, who is the original creator, is all about. What does it mean to create a creation where a lot of it has nothing in it?
To me it means that Goddess is looking for co-creators. It isn’t that She expects us to make galaxies and stars and planets and park them in that space. But, you have to create a place of nothingness for people to create in. If every spot is filled, you do not have the emotional and intellectual space to allow what is within to come to being in the physical world. She is saying “now it’s your turn. I want you to create with me — whether it’s a birthday cake, or a painting, or a song, or a letter, or a quilt, or a bouquet of flowers, or anything else. It is what we create together that is beauty. So, here is a space that has the silence and receptivity of nothingness to hold you as you create.”
What will you make in Her space?
