Einstein said: “The field is the sole governing agency of the particle.” We know, from the revelations of quantum physics, that this field, or all-pervasive space, is an in-formation field within which everything in the universe exists. There is a non-local connectivity in the field – which must be a type of web, or super-fluid – enabling the instantaneous transfer of information from one body to another, one consciousness to another – and from the field itself, to all of life. The field not only governs the particles (us) within it – but it responds to the particles too! The energy of thought and emotion alter the field – and thus affect its evolution. We are then participants in the evolution of the field.
The field is a soup of conscious intelligence that permeates the universe, and within which, we are all participants.
As participants in the field of consciousness, we have the freedom to choose more of it. As we grow and mature spiritually and psychologically, we are able to choose to embody greater consciousness, higher intelligence, more of the field. And as we do, we become more integrated – or more whole. That is, more aware of our connectivity, and of the illusion of our separateness.
If, on the other hand, we choose to act unconsciously, to live through our lower, or egoic self, we become more dis-integrated.
Interestingly, dis, as a prefix means reversal, negation, lack, separation from. Dis came from the Latin word for the Roman god of the underworld – Pluto. If our consciousness is dis-integrated, we can indeed enter the territory of the hell worlds. We do not have to look far in the world today to see where the prevailing state of dis-integration is taking us.
But, we must not lose our faith. That the cosmos is ordered is revealed in the word itself – cosmos means order. Where we have the opposite of order – chaos – is where the natural law of entropy (the second law of thermodynamics) has been allowed to run its course. This means consciousness has diminished from the system – and therefore it has become dis-integrated. Yet within the disintegration of chaos, lies its opposite – the potential for integration. Beyond chaos there is always the seedling of a new state of order. Just as we have our personal ‘shadow’ – comprised of that which has been rejected from our consciousness – the Earth has her shadow too. Earth’s emotional body, the lower astral, contains a vast repository of all the evil thoughts and deeds that have manifested throughout her long history. Just as our personal emotional body brings rejected material back into our conscious awareness through illness and/or psychologically or physically cataclysmic events – the Earth’s aura periodically spews upheaval and mayhem out into the physical, visible world. And just as illness ultimately serves us, by bringing us back into balance, helping us to integrate material previously rejected (this usually occurs on an unconscious level), so too do the chaotic events we are witnessing in the world serve the purpose of balancing and integrating the split (duality) that caused them! Illness makes us honest, and chaos in the world does likewise. Honesty is the prerequisite of integration.
It is important to acknowledge the shadow as being simply one side of a polarisation that is inherent in this system of duality. It is the side without light. Light is information. And the shadow is without light because it has been rejected from consciousness. As we progress through life we are constantly compelled to choose – one thing or another, one desire over another. Every decision is a choice to realize a certain principle. In choosing a principle, we have chosen to manifest, or to make conscious, one end of a polarity. The pole we have not chosen, stays outside of our consciousness – and goes underground, where it remains unmanifest, or invisible. The world of the invisible has greater power than the visible – for it is the birthplace of everything in the manifest world. All that is rejected, or not made conscious by us – which is everything that is the opposite of who and what we consider ourselves to be, does not vanish into the ethers……it goes into the shadow, or the invisible. From here it may be gradually integrated, through conscious awareness, new choices, new decisions, different actions. If not integrated, it can create sickness: mental, emotional, or physical.
Evil – live spelt backwards – is life’s negative, or flip side. (The truth so often lies in a place that is inside out, back to front, or opposite – hidden, so to speak, in plain sight). Evil, being the opposite of life, is that which blocks the flow of spirit and the capacity we all have, as free-willed individuals to choose more consciousness, more of the field. It may be intelligent, but it has no intelligence. It is un-informed; lacking in-formation, or light. Consciousness always seeks balance and harmony. Evil is imbalanced and dis-harmonious and it creates dis-sonance, dis-tress, dis-ease and chaos – because it blocks energy. It blocks, or negates the free flowing energy that is life. It is therefore death: to the life force, and with it, the body. We know illness and disease are the result of blockages in the free-flowing energy of life. Unblocked or unhealed, these lead to death – the ultimate dis-integration.
The good news is, the forces of darkness (and dis-integration) controlling us, and worse (actively trying to extinguish us), are actually losing the battle. Evil only appears to prevail. A process is underway to balance the equation and heal the split of duality that has created such pain. We need to trust the process. This split (the fall) has torn us away from, or at least obscured, our true natures – as participants in the conscious evolution of ourselves and the field. As Einstein observed, the field is the sole governing agency of the particle. What he didn’t say is, as we particles expand our awareness and wake up to the manipulation of our consciousness – we have the power to collectively change the field. It is a two-way process. As our consciousness alters, the field we live in alters. We are governed by the field, but we are participants in it as well – even as mere particles that we are. As we heal our personal imbalances and become more integrated – the dis-integration we see in the world around us will be healed. As we learn to relinquish fear, there will be no need to see it projected onto the screen of the external world.
We chose to be here now and we no longer need to learn through pain. We do not have to witness the destruction of our world and everything we hold dear. We can choose to make this transition through love, healing and gentleness, rather than chaos, pain and destruction. To do so, we must take responsibility for our own healing, our own health and wellbeing – on all levels. We must open our hearts and stop listening to our heads and the voices of fear. The ancient wisdom of the Tao states: “Only when we are sick of our sickness, shall we cease to be sick. The sage is not sick, but is sick of sickness, this is the secret of health.” In other words, everything comes down to our awareness and our willingness to choose more consciousness, more of the field; to decide, collectively to stop being sick! As we heal ourselves, our world will change. It is an exciting time to be alive – and it is vital we all do our part. Ultimately, the best way to serve others, is to first raise our own consciousness. Let’s do it!
