Almost universally, ancient texts and traditions say to us, in the language of their time, that we are part of all that we see, that we are related through a Force to the events of our world, to one another, to the processes within our bodies and the Cosmos and beyond. In our most sacred traditions, this Force is described as all-powerful, something that permeates all of Creation. It's not "out there" somewhere. It is a part of ourselves as well as a part of all that we perceive.

Now Western science, beginning in about 1993, through accredited academic and scientific institutions, has performed experiments with unexpected — and in some cases very surprising — results, experiments demonstrating that the ancient tenets appear to be true. In these experiments, the only way that the curious and bizarre behavior of nature and particles in the subatomic world, the quantum world, could be explained was if those particles were all connected through a previously unrecognized Force.

So what's happening right now, in the early years of the 21st Century, is that Western science is moving toward accepting the ancient idea of this unity field that links all of Creation.

Some scientists are calling this field Nature's Mind. Some scientists are calling it the Mind of God (a famous name given to it by Stephen Hawking in his book A Brief History of Time.) Many researchers now are calling it the Quantum Hologram.

This unity field, this Quantum Hologram, responds to the things that we do and the way we think and feel. It allows us as individuals to participate in the events of our lives rather than feeling hopeless as we stand by and watch the world teeter on the brink of war, or watch our loved ones succumb to illness and diseases that we really don't understand.

Western scientists now not only identify this field, but they give it characteristics. They say that this field appears to be everywhere, all the time, a form of energy that's already present rather than being generated in one place and transmitted somewhere else. It's everywhere all the time and appears to have been with us since Creation began, what physicists called the "Big Bang."

So it's always been here, it's everywhere all the time, and it also appears to have what Western scientists are now calling "intelligence." It appears to be an intelligent field in that it responds to the language of coherent human emotion. Except for the language, this field sounds very similar to what the ancients called God.

Coherent Emotion

The language the Unified Field seems to speak is that of coherent emotion. What's incoherent emotion? It's the kind of emotion we experience when we are feeling one way, thinking another way, and expressing something different from either our thoughts or our feelings.

Let's say for example we come to work on a Monday morning and we just had a terrible weekend with our family, and we've lost a loved one. Life has not gone very well, and we're feeling all that on one level. And a co-worker asks us how our weekend was, and we answer, "Oh, it was fine."

Because we don't want to talk about it, we end up blocking ourselves from having a coherent feeling and a coherent emotion. We're not being honest, so we do not have our emotions aligned with our thoughts, feelings, and expression.

Coherent emotion happens when what we are thinking, feeling, and expressing are all in alignment. When we have coherent emotion, it can be measured and documented that there also are effects that extend beyond our bodies.

For example, if we prayed for our loved one to be healed, but we were thinking it probably wasn't going to happen, and feeling fear of loss, then that prayer would not be speaking the "language" of the Quantum Hologram.

But in the same example, if we feel and think that our loved one is already healed — or in the example of praying for peace, that peace already exists in our world — that triggers a series of processes in our bodies.

First, it creates a chemical shift, a shift in the pH levels, i.e., the alkalinity and the acidity in our blood stream. And it changes the hormonal levels of our body. The life-affirming hormone precursor DHEA, for example, increases over 100 percent in our bodies in the space of only six hours in the presence of coherent emotions of appreciation and gratitude.

By contrast, the life-depleting hormones like cortisol, the stress hormone, decrease over 23 percent in that same six hours in the presence of incoherent emotion.

So we know that emotion is triggering processes within our bodies. And now we know that those processes have quantum effects that extend beyond our bodies into our families, into our communities, into the societies that surround us. So it is through coherent emotion that we affect the Unified Field, or the Consciousness Grids, in a purposeful way.

The Need for Personal Change - If we are the Earth, if we are the Force, it follows that when Earth goes through changes — for example, when the magnetics of the Earth change, or if we have a polar reversal — our bodies are going to change, as well.

In other words, these kinds of changes are having direct effects upon our perceptions of space and time, upon our relationships, our romances, our careers, our sleep patterns, and how we view ourselves in relation to one another. All of those things are affected by changes in the Earth.

And I think most of my readers will agree that each of us is experiencing, at least to some degree, changes in our personal lives, right now, that are reflecting the kinds of changes that are going on in the Earth at large.

And further, in the language of the ancients and our most cherished spiritual traditions, faith moves us into a "space," where we can affect the forces of Nature around us and bring about the kinds of changes in our world that we call miracles.

Or as Western science would put it, coherent human emotion produces a chemical change in our bodies, and that chemical change has quantum effects that extend beyond our bodies and bring about changes in our physical world (and now it's no longer a "miracle").

But if we were going to make a flow chart of these two ways of describing what happens, the flow chart would be the same for the scientific and the traditional world view.

In the Essene texts and in the Hebrew and the Christian texts, the way that this is described is that when thought, feeling, and emotion become one — in other words, when they are all aligned — then we say to the mountain, "Move!" and the mountain moves.

Our Collective Energy


Sometimes we look at the actions of others and find it difficult to understand what motivates them. But we are all doing the best we can with the information we currently have. We have all been taught how to see the world from the examples of those around us and by our experiences. Keeping this in mind, we can accept the choices made by others while seeking ways to increase the world's level of consciousness as a whole.

Our different levels of consciousness are like the developmental stages of children, whose understanding varies according to their age and experience. For example, the behavior of a two-year-old who doesn't want to share can be understood as a phase of his social education, whereas a 16-year-old who behaves in the same manner would be thought to be acting childish. It is important to remember that we are each on our own unique path. We may have chosen certain lessons or made an agreement to play certain roles in the unfolding of the world's understanding before we incarnated in this lifetime. So our job is not to judge others but to shift the balance of understanding in the world by increasing our own.

Every thought we have and action we take becomes part of the collective energy of the planet. When we use our energy to bring light into the world, it combines with the light brought by others to dispel the darkness. Though we live in a world of duality, which helps us to experience the material plane, we don't need to experience extremes to understand them. We can share our experiences and understanding with others not from a place of condescension but of connection. When the entire family of humanity understands that each of our thoughts, choices, and actions affect us all, we will share an incredible level of consciousness-one that puts our oneness above all else and helps us evolve into higher expressions of our spiritual selves. Remember the next time you witness an action of another that they are of the same earth as you but simply on a different conscious level at this point in their life. Find compassion, bless them, and move along your day in grace!

The Path to Oneness


Since the dawn of the mists of time, you have had one great soul urge, and that is to reunite with the spiritual source from which you came. Along the way, you have realized that this means reaching out in spiritual service to mankind. Along the way, you have sensed that this giving of spiritual service is the very action which leads you along the pathway back to that from which you came.

By becoming your brother's keeper in a spiritual way, you become more at one with all people and the source from which we all came. Through service to others, you also serve your own spiritual development. By loving and healing them through the use of spiritual energy, you help the spiritually blind to see the light within, you help the spiritually deaf to hear the whisperings of their souls, and you help the spiritually numb to revitalize their connection with God.

By sending them your love, by sending them your light, by helping them with this precious, spiritual energy of love and light, you heal their hearts, you heal their spirits, you heal their long-suffering souls, and you help them back onto the one great path back to Source, which we all yearn to tread.

That path is the road to reconnection to the Spirit within. That path is the one which brings you into conscious contact with the light within. That path is the reason you are here, the reason you chose to be born into a world where people feel disconnected from that very Source.

The details of how that path unfolds are unique for every individual. We all tread this path in our own way to reach the common goal of reconnection with the flame of the Spirit which shines within our hearts. It is this flame which silently beckons us on. It is this flame which lights the darkness in a world of great suffering. It is this flame which connects our souls to the one Source of all things.

When you go into the silence of meditation, even for a few moments, remember to end your session by helping the world. Dedicate your love and your light to world peace and freedom, then send this out from your heart into a world that desperately needs energy in a spiritual form.

Life energy is everywhere. Spiritually-conditioned life energy is in short supply because few people take the time to condition it with their intentions and send it out to heal the world. Once you condition the energy of life with love and light and send it out to the world, it reverberates within the global mind atmosphere of humanity, healing and uplifting many people. Its higher frequency imbues it with enormous power relative to the regular, everyday thoughts of mankind. The power of spiritual energy is such that it affects, not one, but hundreds of people at the same time.

Every time you send out love and light in dedication to world peace and freedom for all, you help hundreds of people to see life and its possibilities from a higher perspective.

When you intentionally heal the world in this way, you help many people who are not yet consciously aware of how to raise themselves up spiritually. These are people who are relying upon the enlightened vision of people like you, so that they may be helped in taking the next step into higher consciousness. So that they may be comforted and healed. So that they may gain their own conscious inner reconnection to the one Spirit from which they once came, so long ago, in the mists of time.

One Human Family


An Idea Whose Time Has Come - There are pivotal ideas that have changed the destiny of mankind and shaped its future. Many have remained unnoticed within the shadowy corners of history until a bright light has shown on them, illuminating them, and making them relevant to time, place, and circumstance.

Such is the understanding of the oneness of the human family, of mankind - an idea that has been part of human consciousness for ages, yet one that has not attained its full status as being real or relevant until today, when the planetary body itself is in danger, and when new possibilities appear within the hearts of many who are being influenced by expanding spiritual light upon the Earth.

The idea of the human family relates not only to its essential oneness in terms of the basic needs and rights of every individual upon the Earth - the need and right to food, shelter, and a way of life free from fear. The idea of the human family relates also to the understanding that there is a basic kinship among mankind, a basic essence that we share together so that in heart, mind, body, and spirit, there is more that joins us than that separates us.

This perception, when taken to a deeper level of truth and reality, has radical consequences. For it means that we cannot separate the world any longer into those we love and those we hate, those who are with us and those who are against us. Indeed, we must find a way to achieve common ground even with those we hold profound differences with, recognizing their humanity, recognizing, that they, too, have the same underlying structure of needs and desires that define all that is human.

We are in the process of discovering, today, not a new truth about the physical, biological, or chemical structure of what it means to be human - although advances in science are revealing a great deal in these areas as well. Today, we are discovering a truth that emerges from the heart. This truth emanates a sense of compassion, a desire for peace, a longing for honesty and an end to deception, an aversion to all that limits or restricts the rights of individuals to live freely.

These ideals, illuminated by spiritual light, are glowing more brightly within the human heart, so that structures and policies that are detrimental to the right of individual freedom are being questioned, policies that have been long established that have contained hidden motives or agendas are being uncovered, and practices that are restrictive to human liberty are being exposed. These policies and practices may not yet have an immediate substitute at hand. For the vision of the new has not yet fully come into being. Yet the desire for fundamental respect to be accorded to each and every human being because of their humanity, is moving more into the foreground of human consciousness.

An idea whose time has come may have been present in awareness long before this. It may even have been one commonly referred to, yet without understanding the full consequence of its emergence into the light of day. Such is the idea of the 'human family', one in mind, heart, and spirit, waiting to recognize itself as one in body as well. For this 'body' of the human family is nothing other than the essence of Divine life and Divine energy that has lived within each human soul from the beginning of time. It is the essence of truth and of purity that has remained at the core, no matter what the exterior self has displayed. This Divine essence which links all in 'body' as well as in mind and heart, means that there is no longer an 'outsider' or 'other' that we may declare as such. For all are united in a common Source that flows through the spiritual veins of each human being.

This is the new and radical truth whose time has come. It has not yet fully arrived on the human scene, but is waiting in the wings. It is waiting for each one to awaken to the full meaning of being One.

Unity Consciousness


The experience of unity consciousness is transcendent, beyond mind. To describe (or attempt to describe) the experience of unity consciousness with the use of conceptual language inherent in the mind is quite difficult.

It's similar to describing the feeling of falling in love or the birth of a child -- difficult to put into words, or, just the right words. Words are labels, and labels are by their nature limiting. Just as one cannot accurately describe infinity, one cannot accurately describe unity consciousness. The words used in the futile attempt to describe unity consciousness can, however, serve as a bridge to the experience of oneness.

No two individuals will view a oneness experience alike. If two persons traveled to the North Pole, one may describe the experience as an opportunity to view mammoth and beautiful glacial formations. Yet, the other may complain of the bitterly cold conditions. It's all in the eye of the beholder, yet there may be common threads in the descriptions of those who have the beyond-mind experience.

In stark contrast to our interpretation of life in a dualistic manner, one may be struck by the inherent connectedness of all life in the oneness state. No longer is one separate as an individual, seeing all as outside or beyond the borders of self. Rather than being exclusive, all of life is viewed a part of one's self. The trees, the plants, rocks, other persons, sand on the beach, space, time, thought, love — everything is you and you are everything. It is one gigantic unified relationship in the ocean of existence. It's crossing the bridge from "little ol' me" to "infinity."

While in the dualistic state there might have been ignorance, mysteries or unanswered questions, now it all makes complete sense.

While it may seem that experiencing this infinite connectedness could be a burden on the brain, the experience itself is one of utter tranquility. Whereas the nature of the dualistic "reality" causes an on-going tension or battle in thought, the oneness experience is a fusion of any such tension into an infinite peace. Everything is "just fine" or "just perfect" about life. Actually, it feels beyond perfect in this infinite sea of tranquility. The stormy waters of life subside and there is perfect and undeniable calmness to the waters. It is true and unfathomable peace.

Inherent within the unity consciousness is a deep understanding of life as never before. While in the dualistic state there might have been ignorance, mysteries or unanswered questions, now it all makes complete sense. You KNOW, though not in an intellectual manner. You know because you have become the experience, and it's closer to you and more a part of you than the air you breathe. It is in every cell of the body, between every cell, and then some. You are no longer a wandering soul, but one who is firmly entrenched in Truth, fully realized.

You are present. No longer is there is concept of time and space. There is no yesterday or tomorrow. There is no here nor there. Any descriptions relating to time do not exist, as mental constructs are simply washed away. Even saying all is NOW fails as a description, as time ceases to exist.

One expands in appreciation through the oneness experience. EVERYTHING has immense value, from the atom in a grain of sand, to the little ant scurrying about, to every hair on our head, to the wind blowing in the trees, to every star in the sky. There is no value system in the sense that someone or something is more important than another. With all being an inherent part of infinite consciousness (often termed "God"), every aspect of existence has infinite value. Judgments made outside of this experience have come only from the mind of man, which, but its very nature, creates hierarchical structures.

Though we have been strongly indoctrinated that activity or doing is the key to a successful and productive life, we see differently when we transcend. Instead, we see being as a core of, well, our being. It becomes enough to just "stand still," as a tree would stand firm on the ground, and simply exist. Such does not imply that one would only sit in a corner and refrain from using the mind and body; what it means is that we now more fully understand that we are no longer as identified with our actions, roles and accomplishments. We are full and complete in just being; we no longer feel the need to become someone. There is immense value in our nature, in who we are at our very core, without moving a finger.

Perhaps the most dramatic aspect of the unity experience is that we are transformed. Though we are still the person we were before the experience, we are very different. It is as if the old self is peeled away, and what emerges is this creature of life, love, understanding, peace and contentment. It is a new life that feels "closer to home" or that one has arrived. There is no place for fear, doubt or worry, as those are seen only as remnants of the dualistic mind. There is no sense of lack, as the universe of abundance and infinite intelligence is now at one's call. There is only allowing, the unfolding of life in its perfect manifestation of our higher nature. You are a flower in bloom, though fully bloomed. Life is a magnificent paradox.

And as inspiring and uplifting as these words may sound, they doubtfully convey even a fraction of a percentage of the experience. It's life beyond words, beyond thought, into a land beyond where our imaginations are able to travel. There's no way to comprehend it all with our limited minds, and yet we can experience enough of it to understand that, regardless of shape, size, status or place in life, we are inherently divine.
