The Galactic Center is a black hole; it is our origin and it is our destination, our inherent state of Oneness.
In my book, THE SCORPIO RING OF FIRE, I propose that the black hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy represents our Divine Mother, God in a feminine aspect. I also claim that facts about it in the field of science can then tell us about our relationship to the Divine. A black hole is a physical manifestation of God. This may be hard for some to swallow and quite a few of the pages within my book try to make this case for those who don’t immediately see the connection. If you haven’t read the book I want to try a different tactic here. Below are a few quotes from Tom Siegfried’s “The Bit and the Pendulum” concerning the latest understanding on black holes from the world of astrophysics. I would like you to read these quotes imagining that the black holes he describes represent a return to God, a return to our Divine state, what happens when we die if we are enlightened with a heart filled with love and compassion. You might find the information that science tells us about this Divine state to be interesting:
“Wheeler explained that nothing can escape a black holes’ powerful gravity—not even light, which is why black holes are black. Anything that falls into a black hole, stays in.” pg. 197
Black holes are incredibly attractive just like anyone who has achieved a state of Supreme Love and the highest consciousness are. They are attractive and they represent a state of bliss that once entered, there is no return. Saints usually elicit attraction and have an air of mystery around them. This is a state of union with the Divine that is described in many spiritual texts, The Bhagavad Gita, being one of them.
“From the mass of a black hole you can figure out how big it is. But you can’t find out how it got to be that big. . . . And you can get nothing that falls into a a black hole out again.” pg. 197
How did Jesus become the “Son of God,” in union with the Divine? That can’t be known. Once there is union with the divine the idea of history is nullified. That state is beyond the linear cause and effect that is the foundation of history and which allows us to ask questions like “how did He get like that?” Once the state of Oneness is reached then individuality is gone forever.
“black holes not only swallow information, they chew it up. In addition to making excellent wastepaper baskets, black holes may also be the ultimate shredders.” 198
This aspect of black holes explains what is meant by “forgiving of sins” or “saving” another. A black hole takes everything in and erases its history. Similarly, a saint or a Divinely unified person also takes in the sin or karma of others and dissolves it, freeing that person from the normal cause and effect that would have eventually caught up with them. Saints or God-realized souls literally shred the records of our wrong deeds in order to bring immediate improvements into our lives. ‘Lay it at His feet,’ followers often say of Jesus, ‘He will take care of it. He will wipe your tears away.’ And in this same attitude millions in India have come to God-realized saints to remove their karma, absorb their karma, shred their karma and free them from the whiplash of their own foolish actions.
