The Realm of Possibility and a Blaze of Light

Anonymous said...
I've read your book of poems several times. You talk about "possibility" as if it was a place to go. Can you please talk about what this means to you? I'm not getting it.

Thank you for posting this intriguing question. Most of us have some idea of the meaning of the word “possibility,” Merriam Webster defines it as: 1 : the character, condition, or fact of being possible whether theoretically, in general, or under a specified set of conditions 2 : something that is possible : CONTINGENCY : a particular thing that may take place, eventuate, or be manipulated to some end 3 archaic : one's utmost power, capacity, or ability especially as determined by circumstances
Wikipedia defines it as: Possibility comprises that which can happen, such as what one can achieve. The Latin origins of the word hint at ability. Possibility is also referring to something that "could happen", that is not precluded by the facts, but usually not probable.

These definitions are commonly known and we refer to them. But when I think of the realm of possibility, I think of something more. I am thinking of becoming conscious of the eternal spiritual life that encompasses all time and no time and allows us, always, to become more than we are. I am thinking of transcendental possibility.

Today’s scientists are entertaining the notion of an electric universe, where plasma (earlier known as ether) permeates space and holds life. It is there that the idea of a holographic universe comes into play. It is through our etheric bodies that we bring spirit to life.

To answer your question, in these terms, possibility is not a place “to go” but more like an energy to recognize and allow. I have included a pretty good u-tube video about the idea of a holographic universe at the end of this post. Please feel free to continue the dialogue if this does not directly answer your question.
Many thanks. Molly Brogan

I am wondering if you don't use the term "possibliity" like "potential." Like whatever is possible will become real because of who you are in the moment.

Indeed, Nick, I think that potential does allow for who you are in the moment. I like this idea. Possibility also includes divine will along with our potential, in the manifestation. It is the bridge between the divine and our current reality. When we open ourselves to possibility, we allow the divine in us to become the primary cause. If we can keep that divine essence from our original thought or feeling into the current circumstance or action, and not let our self will over ride, we are allowing spirit to live through us. When our self will is aligned with divine will, we are open to possibility.
