Space is not just out there but all around and through us; all of us.

A whole book about space – can you believe it? And it is not even about space as in the universe, what we call outer space, with its suns and galaxies, planets, comets, stars, black holes, etc.

So, what is this other space, this stuff that is also called space?

Have you ever tried to feel space? Like being at your desk and feeling the space between your chest and your jumper, the space between your fingers, your toes, between your fingers and the keyboard, the space above your head – all the way to the ceiling in your room, to the roof of the house, to the heavens and possibly even beyond?

And can you really? And if so, what does it feel like? There is definitely something there, would you agree? But what is it? What is it made of, other than some clever chemical formula pertaining to its elements, something to hold on to and letting us be under the impression that we do know something? Is it really nothing? But how can we feel nothing if it is not something? And this something taking up more space in your room, in your house, in your neighbourhood than the solid fixtures, whether that be a desk, a cupboard, the built structure, the houses, streets and trees.

There cannot be nothing and even if we were inclined to indulge and use that word ‘nothing’, Serge Benhayon has presented that:

"‘Nothing is nothing and everything is everything’; just like there is no such thing as empty space or a void, every bit of space is filled with the quality of energy we either create or Co-create."

Serge Benhayon Esoteric Teachings & Revelations Volume II, ed 1, p. 345

So, space is filled with energy, a quality of energy – and that quality is either our wilfulness and its repercussions, or the harmony and all-encompassing quality of being in sync with divinity. To come straight to the point: space is ubiquitous, as is God’s love and beholding we live inside of = space is universal intelligence, it is God’s Atma, His womb we live inside of. As do, by the way, the suns, planets, stars, galaxies, comets, etc. etc.

And does space stop on the outside of our skin? Is there space inside of us? Well, the physical body seems pretty tightly packed, with organs, veins and arteries, muscles, tendons and ligaments, connective tissue and all our bodily fluids. Is there any space?

  • But what happens when some days we feel quite light and buoyant and other days heavy and weighed down?
  • Is it possible that we can feel spacious inside our body?
  • Is it possible that energetically we are composed of divine particles, the only building material available to the human spirit when it decided to incarnate, don a physical body and see what else it could create, just because it could?
  • Is it possible that our particles, these divine particles, can move a little or a lot apart from each other, allowing more of the All, more of space to be within?

Yes, very possible, plausible and real when you know that there is more to us than flesh and bone and can feel that we are more than mere humans. You did when you were small, didn’t you? Wasn’t there a continuum between the outer and the inner, wasn’t there space instead of time and didn’t you enjoy, feel, sense, smell, touch and bathe in it to the max? And didn’t you take that space – your space – with you wherever you went? Until of course you gave in to the ways of the world, to the notion of time and became denser and denser ‘over time’.

But space never gives up on us, nor does God – space being His living and breathing body: and can you imagine how spacious His particles are? After all, His job description encompasses holding and beholding not only earth and its wayward occupants but also galaxies, suns, planets, comets, black holes; and besides, lest we forget – space forever expands.

So it could be said that we have a long way to go but also, and rightly so, that we don’t have a long way to go at all. Space – if we align and surrender to our deeper knowing, to its truth – is there all around us and right through us, ever available to inspire us (ah yes, we do breathe, don’t we?)... ever awaiting with its perennial offerings of divine wisdom and multidimensional insight.

And because space forever expands and the equivalent of this expansion in human form being evolution, true evolution (that is and not ‘the ape to human’ story), space and its spaciousness never end.
