Have you ever felt like you were being pulled towards someone? Like fate wanted you to be with someone? Despite what you did,things didn’t change? And just when you gave in to fate, or whatever was pulling you, your fate changed. But still you find yourself entangled with them?
There are people in my life that I have been close to that I hoped I would never be separated from; and others, where the pain we inflicted on each other and ourselves made me want to disconnect in every way. I’m sure you know that awful sense of being in a Chinese finger pull with someone – the harder you try to get away the more stuck you are.
In quantum physics, Niels Bohr discovered that once subatomic particles have been connected, they can be separated by any amount of time and distance and they continue to affect each other. No force or energy needs to be present. It’s called non-locality or ‘entanglement’. They ‘talk to each other’ and influence each other forever.
My gut tells me that the same applies to us. We are made of subatomic particles. When I read this it helped me understand the longing to never be separated, from a much deeper place, and it was reassuring to my doubting mind – that even in death, the connections never end and we continue on, together.
It can also have a sobering effect to realise that no matter how angry or hurt we might be in a relationship that has ended, that the relationship hasn’t ended and never will. The forms change but to continue to learn and forgive and find a way to maintain our relatedness in peace is incumbent upon us. It makes certain spiritual teachings about karma and the ‘golden rule’ really sink in.
If we are together forever, then how much more consciously do we need to care for our relationships?
“Is there really no where to go and we will continue to touch each other always?
