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.

They are dynamic images, held unconsciously, that form and impact our emotions, our ethical and mental outlook, our relationships with others, and thus our whole destiny. For these purposes, the Mithal . . . → Read More: Archetypes and the Mithal

Nafs Four to Seven

By refining the soul, we move through the seven Nafs (levels of soul development). After the major transformation that is the move from the second Nafs to the third Nafs, the remaining Nafs, Four to Seven, progressively expand the developments begun in Nafs 3. In Nafs 4 there is increasingly less self-absorption. From habitually circling around . . . → Read More: Nafs Four to Seven

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
