From our guest author, Holly Fox.
In order to engage the topics of the matterless, time, space and all things unseen with the naked eye (including your spirit), we will have to turn to the part of science that dares go where its linear-thinking counterparts can no longer think straight—quantum physics. Quantum physics, like the esoteric world of spirituality, is an invisible world. It proves that matter is actually energy and there are no absolutes and “at the atomic level—matter does not even exist with certainty, it only exists as a tendency to exist”. (Biology of Belief, Lipton 2005) It is my theory that this tendency is the focus of our energy from thought to form and it is through this form that we literally gravitate to conceive life as we know it. Life in the matter of form is not necessary—it is just done and to find the reason why it is done is where all the answers lie and they lie beyond what we can see. If we are interested in saving the world, it is important to understand why we are here to begin with and if that gives us any indication of how we are to be “saved.”
First of all: What is quantum physics? I’m going to attempt to make this short, sweet and understandable. I preface the following statements with the fact that I am not an expert on quantum physics. A quantum is the minimum unit of any physical entity involved in an interaction. Quantum physics or quantum mechanics provides a mathematical description of the wave/particle duality and interactions of energy and matter. Basically they are physic laws that govern all things that are of matter. If we were able to see the laws of quantum mechanics with the naked eye, it would surprise us, as these laws do not follow the laws of perception that we attribute to understanding what is happening around us, in form. In fact, quantum physics proves that atoms are made of energy and are not actually tangible matter. Therefore, what you hold in your hand on an atomic level does not even exist—it is an illusion. Our so-called reality can be called an illusion because an illusion that is something that is seen—however—is not real. One of the attributes of quantum physics that is most interesting is that it proves atoms are influenced by each other without being in direct or physical contact with the other. There is an energy that is not seen, yet can be physically detected by the behavior of another atom. What this means is that our thoughts are energy and can alter the behavior of our cells and actually override their predisposition of behavior.
In short: everything is energy, energy influences other energy, and energy appears out of thin air. What this means is that since we are all energy, we are all connected. Matter does not separate us because—we are not matter! You and I have a whole lot more in common than you think…we are actually connected!
Since we are all made of cells and atoms, quantum physics allows us a glimpse into how this plays our illusion of reality because my dear, what we perceive does not actually exist—it is not our true reality. Quantum physics proves this. Then what is our true reality? I think it is safe to say we are particles of energy (or as I sometimes refer to energy as spirit) and because of our energies proven ability to influence, it is indeed—conscious. Here, energy can simply be concluded as consciousness. In conclusion our truth, which is our real reality is—consciousness.
So where does energy come from? I can tell you, it does not come via delivery by the Vlasic-pickle stork. We can begin to ponder the “G” word at this point but because of this old man’s bad-boy imagine, I would like to leave Him out of the equation for now. I would rather come to know what is absolute and without perception as—truth. If truth is truth, then truth does not have an ego and therefore could not care less if we referred to what is essentially without definition with a name or not. If truth is truth, it would also be incapable of judgment because it would have nothing to judge due to its lack of perception. It would have nothing to compare itself to because it would be everything. Truth cannot be a little of something and a little of something else because in order to be truth, it has to be complete of itself and without comparison. Do you get my drift? Truth has to be everything and if truth is everything then there is no way that we are not a part of truth. Capiche?
If none of the above makes your toes curl and you would like to take a step out of science and the spiritual concepts completely, you can think about truth it in another way. Anything born of mind-body perception is categorically false, simply because my perception will be different than yours. Always. For example: If you were to Freaky Friday yourself into my body and do everything that I would do in a normal day with nothing being changed—you would have a different experience than myself. Why? Because we are not our bodies and you have your own past thoughts, which serve as an emotional backdrop of your own default-subconscious mind that tells you—what you see—your side of the story. That is your perception. We do not know what we see because we only know the meanings we attach to what we see due to our past thoughts. Therefore this also proves that what we see is not truth and as long as we are thinking from our bodies we will perceive our own illusion of reality.
Instead of allowing this information to make you sad (because I know how all of us like to be right!) consider the potential to use our minds to create a better and improved illusion of reality instead. The power of perception can be used to create your own reality and most importantly can be used to save the world. You are creating your reality anyways, you are just not aware you doing it. If you are aware of this— you might as well use this to your advantage. If you want to manipulate your current reality we have to start with our beliefs. What we believe we will perceive, as our beliefs are the cause for everything—most importantly—the cause for change…
I am going to end this post with the famous quote from A Course in Miracles (Foundation of Inner Peace, 1976) text, which sums up perfectly everything that we have discussed today:
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.
