Light is the Only Absolute

Richard Rohr says that light is the only absolute. And it has made so much sense to me!

While listening to Rohr’s CD, I became fascinated and validated by the following data: He commented on how often God is referred to as Light in the Bible and throughout history. In fact, words like Truth, Love, Source, Spirit, and Consciousness – all euphemisms for the divine – are often interchanged, symbolized and compared with the word Light in many world religions.

Religion intuited what in our lifetime science is validating.” Richard Rohr

He says that we are now in a position to understand this scientifically (thanks to our favorite scientist, Albert Einstein). Light is the only constant in the world, it is immutable and never varies. The only measure of the absolute in the universe is the speed of light.

light is the only absolute

We cannot find any other absolute. Everything else in the world is relative. It changes with the environment, in relation to what is around it. Light is the only thing that does not change. No matter what is happening in the universe the speed of light remains the same. So much so that is is used to measure everything else.

 

“I have no doubt that in reality the future will be vastly more surprising than anything I can imagine. Now my own suspicion is that the Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.”

J.B.S. Haldane 1927

Rohr continues: We are the first generation to understand that space, time and sound can all be variables and have relativitized any notion of a constant forever. Nature is revealing that to us that everything is in constant flux. Except light.

Light is the only absolute

Light is omnipotent. Science has proven that even what looks like total darkness, which is 96 or 97% of the universe, dark energy, dark matter, darkness, is actually not darkness at, it is actually light. We just can’t see it. Every atom and every electron of the universe is either conserving light energy, releasing photons of light or gathering photons of light. Light really is omnipresent. All matter is inherently and intrinsically light and all that is happening is the exchange of light in different forms. When we attempt to measure it, it is on an unstoppable course towards infinity in one direction: it is an endless multiplication of light photons that empowers absolutely everything, including our bodies.

Albert Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity says that the hands of a clock slow down when attached to moving objects. Movement slows the advancement of time. As an object accelerates, time continues to decelerate until the object reaches the speed of light. At the speed of light, time stops completely. When you stand in, or understand yourself to be light you see everything all at once, the past, present and future, you are in what Rohr calls the eternal now. It is in this present moment, you can feel and understand the light that you are. If light is absolute, so are you.

This is a beautiful post. It exalts the ultimate truth. However, how difficult it is to understand for those who are conditioned, habituated, and bound by the ways of the world. This truth was discovered thousands of years ago, but faded with time. You’ve nicely described how time stops, and one becomes the light – the state of enlightenment. This is the ultimate moment that one yearns for years, centuries, and many births. I wish we all can implement what we understand – especially you Jodi, thanks for the awesome post.

I love these conversations about Truth and Light and implementing what we understand. We have loads of work to do to share with and heal the world. But many hands make light (and joyful) work.

looking for the Light. Why some days, we can’t see it or feel it? why is it all darkness around? Sometimes, it’s all just unbearable

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

Light is just beyond the darkness, but so much blocks our view. Believe it is there and that you can see it sooner rather than later. This is my wish for you!

thank you. I’m very sorry i sometimes fail however i try, but i will try to see it, try to wait before complaining

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

You don’t have to apologize. You have not failed, it is not over. You can complain, this is about being allowed. I never stop someone from complaining. They need validation more than anyone.

but how fair are we on our friends if we share? no one is obliged to listen. i do for others because i love to help and turn someone’s tear into a smile, but usually people who complain are a burden on their friends.

That you are a burden is another false belief that keeps you restricted. 🙂
