The idea that science and spirituality are not only compatible, but their source is the same, isn’t new.
As far back as the era of Einstein, he was quotes as saying, “Anyone who becomes seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that there is a spirit manifest in the laws of the universe, a spirit vastly superior to that of man.”
In this sense, a “spirit” is not meant to describe something like a mechanical force, or gravity, or electromagnetism, things like that. To me, Einstein’s reference to the word, “spirit” means consciousness. And what is consciousness, but thought–the thoughts that we think. It was interesting that initially held the opposite position–that the Universe was just a great “machine”. And so for Einstein to have made this huge reversal suggests that something became so convincing that he finally expressed the view that the universe is alive and we are part of it.
We know from science that the brain maps reality so that what it “sees” as an image is as real to it (and you) as any other experience you have–whether it occurred only in your mind, or you physically experienced it.
Do you have a grapefruit in your mouth? Try this: Imagine that you do. Take a moment and see yourself slicing through the dull orange-bright yellow outer skin, exposing the sections on the inside. Now see yourself holding a section in your hand and putting it into your mouth. Can you feel your saliva glands reacting, generating extra saliva —not in your “mind’s eye”, but actually in your “real life” mouth?
So for me, the many experiences I’ve had which seem to defy the known laws of physics–like waking up floating, being able to put my body through solid objects or flying through the air–are as real to my brain as sitting here now. There is no difference.
This also means that you can use imagery to do things like heal parts of your body by seeing them healed.
What are we humans? We each exist as energy patterns, unique for all time and space and in all dimensions. What animates us? That has been identified by modern physics as the Observer effect, coagulating matter into our reality as directed by the energy pattern that is each of us. That energy pattern is what we call the Soul. What drives the Observer effect? The drive to complete itself through experiencing all that it has not yet experienced. What is the Observer effect? The verb of what we think of as Source, Great Spirit, God. What is God? The fabric of the universe. Lisa Broderick, Quantist, Author, Speaker and Turnaround Expert …
