Supernova Refresh

"And I'll look back on Venus,
I'll look back on Mars,
And I'll burn with the fire,
Of 10 million stars" - fame

During my first round of radiation back in February of 2013,

I had a profound experience.  One that paralleled , if not surpassed, giving birth to my children.  A "spirit moment" that stood between time and space. 

I can't tell you where I was or what I was doing.  

Those details have evaporated from my memory.

Without question ,  every cell of my being  understood ,  intimately,  the connection I had to everything … " a resonance of all with all".  This was not an understanding of my mind ,  or even of my heart.  

It went way beyond .


-from the Vijanana Bhairava Tantra …

Then attend simultaneously to resonance of all with all.  

Enter the glowing net of light ,  

with the focus born of awe

and even your bones will know enlightenment

A supernova is a stellar explosion that briefly outshines and entire galaxy, radiating as much energy as the sun is expected to emit over its entire life span, before fading from view over several weeks or months.  The extremely luminous burst of radiation expels much or all of a star's material at a velocity of up to 30,000 km/s ( 10% of the speed of light),  driving a shock wave into the surrounding interstellar medium.  This shock wave sweeps up an expanding shell of gas and dust called a supernova remnant.  A great proportion of primary cosmic rays comes from supernovae.

"The Hindu religion is the only one of the world's great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense,  indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths.  It is the only religion in which the time scales correspond to those of modern scientific cosmology.  Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long.  Longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half of the time since the Big Bang."
