If you have been following all of the extraordinary images and information that the James Webb Space Telescope has been sending back to Earth from the deepest corners of Universe (so far), then you know that it is providing new insights into how those ancient galactic interactions may have brought about galaxy evolution in the early Universe. All Life is One Life, but it is the interactions that occur within It that cause evolution, expansion and growth. As the song goes, “It takes two baby,” it takes the Christ in me and the Christ in you. Just like the galaxies, our early worldly interactions with others, and our current interactions with each other today, offer us opportunities for spiritual evolution, expansion and growth.
Along with all the other amazing images the Webb telescope is providing, there are images seen more clearly than ever before of the five “dancing” galaxies, known as Stephan’s Quintet, that can be seen doing their cosmic dance together, 290 million light years away! We could say those Cosmic images are proof that no matter where, even within a constellation far far away like Pegasus, where Stephan’s Quintet resides, that when given a chance to dance all Life moves naturally to the Rhythms of the Universe without concern about who has a telescope and who’s watching! Everything within this 3-dimensional visible Universe—galaxies, stars, planets, trees, animals, humans, and even insects—are created to dance freely
We could say that in our non-physical spiritual-vibrational essence we dance together in the higher energies of formless bliss like cosmic whirling dervishes emitting invisible vibrations that swirl together in the One Universal Creation we share in the non-physical. To the human eye it is where we invisibly dance together to the Sacred Tempos of the One Song, the Uni-verse, that has no beginning and no ending, and no appearance of separation. But, at some point, it seems we said to each other, “Slow down, you’re moving too fast,” and we joined this time-space environment where there’s a dance of particles, elements and atoms set in motion at a slower rate in order to cause the invisible to become visible, and in the process causes you and me to see each other separately.
Albert Einstein said, “We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music.” And, our bodies are the forms through which we, figuratively and literally, dance to the music we hear. In this way, through the diverse energies we are tuned into at any moment, we attract dance partners to interact with us so that we can evolve, expand and grow spiritually while living in this finite, but magically vibrational, physical environment.
The bundle of frequencies we emit in here and now, through our thoughts and through our prayers, attract onto the dance floor of our individual life those people that, along with events, situations and conditions, are a vibrational match to our own. Abraham-Hicks calls them “cooperative components.” They become our dance partners in this Earth life. We may move and groove with someone for a single song, a whole night, or a whole lifetime. Michael Jackson once said, “Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye, but the dance lives on.”
This Earth life with its ups and downs, with its this way and that way, with its temporariness where dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye, is where you and I have intentionally come so that we can join the Earth dance. This is our chance to dance together visibly, to choose our partners and go round and round in happy evolving Earth experiences. But sometimes we may meet someone who is traveling to the beat of a different drum, and for a while we may go round and round in a not-so-happy Earth experience. Either way, all of our interactions offer us evolutionary opportunities for spiritual awareness and growth. The Scottish essayist and philosopher, Thomas Carlyle, wrote: “Every day that is born into the world comes like a burst of music and rings the whole day through, and you make of it a dance, a dirge, or a life march, as you will.”
Life is a continuous moving Flow of Pure Positive Energy that is hard to resist, but that doesn’t seem to stop us from struggling to resist it, anyway, by feeling so unworthy, awkward and embarrassed about who we are that we become a wallflower in this time-space dance party that we’ve come to join and enjoy. It’s our concern about stepping on other people’s toes that holds us back mentally, emotionally and physically from getting out on the dance floor of life. Such worry keeps us focused on the other dancers, timid and fearful about our moves because we’re trying to stay out of their way and not inadvertently step on their toes. We may watch our every move, or not move at all, so that we don’t move in a way that upsets others. When we don’t move freely as who we are, we can’t dance in sync with the life we want because, as we focus on trying to please others, we’re ignoring music of own soul.
Our belief that it’s not okay to freely be our self causes us to be out-of-step with who we truly are, and holds us back from joining the dance party on Earth where we’re offered as much room to dance as the galaxies, and as much room on the dance floor as we’re willing to ask for. It is only as we freely live our unique self-expression, and move in this world from the holy movement we feel inside of us, that we can evolve, and discover through our authenticity more and more of the One we’re created to be.
We need to find something in life that excites us, something that inspires and moves us, and dance with that as often as we can. And, if nothing comes to mind right away that excites, inspires or moves us, then we can decide to be excited, inspired and moved by everything we do. When we get out on the dance floor of life, and do those things that feel good to do, we attune our mind, emotions and body to the frequencies of the Cosmos. However when we do, it’s likely we’ll inadvertently step on someone’s toes, and get our toes stepped on, too. But a chance to dance in physical form to the music of our soul, in concert with the Universe as a whole, isn’t a gift to pass up!
