What is Quantum Consciousness?

We are living in the blooming of a new view of reality. The discoveries of quantum physics are rapidly converging with the ancient wisdom traditions, in an evolutionary development that could be called Quantum Consciousness. This new cosmology sees the universe as a "Unified Field" or inter-related web without separate parts, alive, conscious and meaningful. The primary reality is consciousness. The material realm is secondary. Meaning is fundamental. We are evolving at a fierce rate toward these new understandings, and toward a new conception of our own nature. We are all the Cosmos becoming conscious of Itself and turning back to look at Its handiwork.

The Third Nafs

The Sufis see the Journey of the Soul as the progression through the Nafs, seven stages of refinement of the soul, maturation, growing through the process of living and growing through the process of hard knocks. The first Nafs, called the “Depraved Nafs” is self-absorbed, unaware for the most part of Being, and characterized by blaming . . . → Read More: The Third Nafs

The Second Nafs

 The Sufis see The Journey of the Soul on earth as a progression through a series of seven stages that they call Nafs. Each successive Nafs involves a refinement of the soul. Each is, in effect, a different kind of soul as a result of its previous learnings. As we move through the Nafs, we are . . . → Read More: The Second Nafs

The First Nafs

The Sufis recognize an evolution of the soul in a series of seven steps called Nafs. Each step is an ascent into a higher level of development, a refining of the soul through experience. Each level creates what is, in effect, another type of soul. The first Nafs is where we begin. It is called the . . . → Read More: The First Nafs

Provenance

           In order to assess where we might evolve next, we need to know where we are now, and how we got here. This involves a look at the evolution of human consciousness. The starting place is, of course, lost in the mists of time, in the origins of awareness itself. The ape . . . → Read More: Provenance

Evolution into Field Consciousness

It is presumptuous to try to predict where evolution may take us next. However, if  we can grasp where the gaping holes exist in our present consciousness, the sources of our problems, perhaps we can express a guess, or at least a hope, about that trajectory. Beyond doubt, our sense of separation from the Earth, from the . . . → Read More: Evolution into Field Consciousness

Slow Metamorphosis

        We are in the midst of a shape-shifting, metamorphosing magic show. We call it Life. Its raw materials are protoplasm and material. It appears to us, at the level of our senses, as a three-dimensional world of solid forms. However, we are aware that this is not the primary reality. At a . . . → Read More: Slow Metamorphosis

The Nebulae

From the time that we came down out of the trees, humans have been mesmerized by the dark infinities of the night sky. In all of the ancient civilizations,intelligent individuals studied the sky to try to ascertain the truth of reality. However, in all of the 2.6 million years that we have been on Earth, we are the . . . → Read More: The Nebulae

The Field

           A new archetype is establishing itself in human consciousness now—the image of basic reality as a Field. It is the next step in the evolution of our consciousness. It is changing the way that we perceive everything—the Universe, the Earth, life-forms, ourselves, and our place in the system. It has its echoes in the distant past . . . → Read More: The Field

The Radiant Particle

          Our real identity, our True Self, is a radiant particle in the Field of Being. The emphasis here is on the whole, singularity, the absence of separation. Our personal identity, including our name, personal history, personal wounds, triumphs and griefs, our hopes and fears and desires, are ephemeral, secondary and passing. The . . . → Read More: The Radiant Particle

The Constructed Self

    Because the culture is fixated on the surface of reality, we have to construct a self during our childhood. The True Self, the Essential Self, is not acknowledged. There is no place for it in the Western framework, and so it recedes into the background. It can be recovered later in life, but it . . . → Read More: The Constructed Self
