The Key to the Universe

I have been laid up with the flu for the past few days. I napped and watched a lot of television while recuperating. I watched a program on PBS.

This program was on the life of Einstein - E=mc2. The equation means that energy equals matter times the speed of light squared. Basically what this is saying is that energy can be turned into matter and matter can be turned into energy, but neither can be destroyed. We applaud Einstein for his theory, but did Einstein realize its real significance?

"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. And God said, 'Let there be light.'; and there was light." Genesis 1:1-3 RSV

Did you see it? Did you see the significance of Einstein's theory in the Bible passage above? God made the entire universe from his Spirit - his light. All energy and matter are made of the same properties as light. So, Einstein proved that there is life after death. If a human being is composed of both matter (body) and energy (our thoughts and emotions) then, according to Einstein's theory neither can be destroyed. When we die our bodies decay and return to the dust of earth. What then happens to our energy? Remember, it cannot be destroyed, therefore by scientific conclusion, it must exist somewhere.

Genesis goes on to state that we are made in God's image, therefore, we are also made from his light. This was his perfect plan - that we would all carry his light like a burning torch and act accordingly.

Of course, we know that this is not how the world is operating today. We have applied names to things such as darkness, cold, hate and evil. If the world was made of God's light, then these things do not exist. Let me explain.

To dispel darkness from a room, do you shut the shades on the windows; do you seal the cracks around the door? No, to dispel darkness you turn on a light. To dispel the shadows in the corners of the room, you turn on more lights and you continue to turn on lights until all the shadows in the room have been erased. So too, when you are cold do you apply ice cubes to to hands to dispel the cold? No, it is only by the application of warmth that cold is dispelled. Scientist know that darkness and cold do not really exist. They are voids. Darkness is only the absence of light and cold is only the absence of heat.

So, what about hate and evil? Will revenge ever stop the hatred of an enemy? Will an exchange of evil cancel each other? Again, hate and evil are only the absence of love and goodness. They too are voids. So how can we dispel these two forces? To dispel hate and evil, we must fill the voids with love and goodness. Try it -the next time you are aggravated by someone close to you respond with your light.
