A Quantum View of Self

How do we really see ourselves? Are we mere humans prone to suffering, aging and finally death with a few joy spots thrown in? Do we feel the pressures of life like Atlas banished by Zeus to uphold the heavens and bear its weight on his shoulders forever? If you grasp the new quantum view of this picture you will see that the heavens which is made up of energy, is at one level weightless. Why have we had to pull out all the stops for a measly survival, instead of celebrating with ease and grace our effortless accomplishments? Why has it taken so long for us to come to terms with who and what we really are – dynamic spirit energy in the flesh?

It is time to gain a new quantum view of ourselves. We need to understand and accept who we are. As Dr Chopra puts it, “we are victims of sickness, aging, and death by gaps in our self-knowledge” and this lack of awareness of the real I “leads to loss of control over the end product of intelligence, the human body.” Our aim then is to become intimate and at one with the source of our being, the real ‘I’; to become so familiar with our spirit source that nothing can prevent us from experiencing the God of our beings or the good of our beings, for we are anything but mere humans.

In physics, quantum is an indivisible entity of a quantity related to both energy and momentum of the smallest particles of matter, also called fermions. The universe is basically made up of fermions – matter and bosons – energy. Matter is the stuff of the universe, and energy moves matter. Since the universe is one unified field of matter and energy and each of us localized beings in this field, wherever our energies are directed or our belief patterns go we have the ability to, and do move matter. It is with our energy patterns that we create our worlds, physically and experientially. Everything we see, everyone in our lives, the things we love or the people we despise are all there because of our particular energy patterns.

Physicists, while they have been able to split the atom and discovered quarks and leptons, still ponder quantum effects which produce particles and antiparticles out of nothing and then disappear moments later. What brings them into material view and what makes them disappear? It is our attention or energy. We do after all live in an intelligent universe.

The new books on prosperity recommend that we list the things we want out of life – what kind of house, what type of career, the material trappings to go with the new life. I ask, ‘what don’t we have’ if we have access to everything in the universe, and we do? The answer must lie in the ‘why’ don’t we have all that we want since it is within easy reach of each of us?

The next question that will be asked is what will we give in exchange for our aspirations? This is a good question and while there are many good things that we can and should do, the bottom line to this question is to be willing to give up the old human view of self. Because the universe is an intelligent energy system and we are localized points of equal intelligence within the system, as we gain a new quantum vision of ourselves, everything around us will change. We will shift the energy patterns that kept us stuck in sickness, aging, and death as the only way out, to energy patterns of health, youthfulness and eternal life. That which is changeless will emerge as our reality. Life will shift from hard work to passionate play; from loneliness to self fulfillment; from loss and limitation to abundance and prosperity. We don’t have to define quantity, time or procedure. We don’t have to present the universe with a shopping list. We don’t need to understand everything at the human level, at the divine level we already know all; if an airplane will serve you better than a motor vehicle, that’s what you will be provided with, without the asking.

Go beyond visualization, imaging, meditation, affirmation, reflection. We don’t have to coerce the universe – we have to know and be and do. God made the world out of Her knowing. BEING the thing She wanted to create She took the action, and it was so. This is beyond faith. This is an unshakable understanding and final acceptance of ourselves as BEING, one with our Creator.

We are in the natural flow of intelligent energy. Its flow into matter depends on us. The things we see and dislike about ourselves and others are those that we create or help to sustain. Money is not the root of all evil; the lack of money is the root of all evil, as is the lack of anything. The so called evil is our insistence of not seeing the truth about money, ourselves and our world. It is all our creation. All of it! What is out there for you? Yourself, as the God that you have searched for and worshiped afar off; the God that was ever nearer than hands and feet. You are the connecting link to the infinite LIFE. One plus God is a majority. You have the backing of the entire cosmos behind you.

Look in the mirror and see God.
