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.

Wonder

Wonder is the invisible component of transformation. It is a special kind of consciousness, an expanded state that involves both the mind and the heart. It focuses the mind on generative Being, and produces a subtle thrill throughout the mind and body, as perceptions of and connection to the Cosmos emerge in experience. Wonder opens the . . . → Read More: Wonder

The Mithal

  Contrary to the American consensus view, which focuses on the material world as the only true reality, existence is a many-layered phenomenon. There are inner realms of non-material reality—a realm of light, a realm of energy, a realm of images—that are almost completely lost to modern consciousness because they do not exist in the consensus framework. . . . → Read More: The Mithal

The Apollonian and the Chthonian

 The Western reality system has been characterized as “Apollonian.” It’s a useful handle for a bundle of characteristics. The word derives, of course, from Apollo, the god of the sun. The Apollonian mind, familiar to us all because it is our own, is brilliantly sun-lit, clear and orderly. Reality is material, visible, simple, observable and apparent. . . . → Read More: The Apollonian and the Chthonian

Recurrent Creation

Our view of reality is shifting. The assumptions that we hold are changing. Mainstream science was constructed on a particular worldview that has now been challenged and is eroding. That worldview included considering the Universe as occupying a static, stable, unchanging empty space, and time as a linear, measurable unfolding of events. It also included the . . . → Read More: Recurrent Creation

Orientation

Humans are adaptable creatures. They can arrange themselves in any number of ways, both as individuals and in groups. The mode of arrangement that we choose depends entirely on our orientation.Orientation is fundamental to functioning. Without basic orientation—knowing who we are, where we are, and what surrounds us—we are helpless and inoperative. We are in the . . . → Read More: Orientation

Destruction

 The Field not only creates. It also destroys. In the Hindu Vedanta of 3,500 years ago, three processes were outlined. These insights were anything but primitive. They were, in fact, characteristic of the Field as we are beginning to understand It today.

First, there was Brahman, the fount of creativity. All things emerge forth into the material . . . → Read More: Destruction

Balance

  The creations of the Field are produced over billions of years, through trial and error. With living organisms, the successes are noted and stored in the DNA like a memory bank, so that they can be replicated and built on. There is an observable, slow style that might be called “incremental creation.” Usually, though not . . . → Read More: Balance

Consciousness

The Field of the Cosmos is not only seething with living, sub-atomic particles, it is alive with consciousness. We are having to work our way back to the truth that consciousness is an omnipresent, ethereal presence in the Universe. Descartes, 400 years ago, separated consciousness from the body and from matter. Effective inquiry into consciousness in . . . → Read More: Consciousness

The Optimal Thrust

Looking back over the story of the Universe, it is apparent that the unfolding did not occur in a random manner. The Field does not operate in a mindless, mechanical mode. There is observable pattern and design in the unfolding. There is coherence. There is direction, and there is an arc to the story line. The . . . → Read More: The Optimal Thrust

Idealization

Idealization is a process of projection that is rampant in our culture. It is a way of seeing that passes reality through a filter and embellishes it. The list of things that can be idealized is practically endless–other people, objects, situations, possibilities. Almost all humans are caught in idealization from time to time. It is usually . . . → Read More: Idealization
