THE DIVINE MATRIX: Bridging time, space, miracles, and belief

 

“All matter originates and exist only by virtue of a force…

We must assume behind this force the existence

of a conscious and intelligent Mind.

This Mind is the matrix of all matter.”

– Max Planck, 1944

 

With these words, Max Planck, the father of quantum theory, described a universal field of energy that connects everything in creation: the Divine Matrix.

 

The Divine Matrix is our world.

It is also everything in our world.

It is us and all that we love, hate, create and experience.

Living in the Divine Matrix, we are as artists expressing

our innermost passions, fears, dreams, and desires

through the essence of a mysterious quantum canvas.

We are the paints, as well as the brushes.

 

In the Divine Matrix, we are the container

within which all things exist, the bridge between

the creations of our inner and outer worlds,

and the mirror that shows us what we have created.

 

This book is written for those of you who long to awaken

the power of your greatest passions and deepest aspirations.

In the Divine Matrix, you are the seed of the miracle,

as well as miracle itself.

 

PART I: DISCOVERING THE DIVINE MATRIX: THE MYSTERY THAT CONNECTS ALL THINGS

Introduction

We Are The Artist As Well As The Art

Experiments in quantum physics, in fact, do show that simply looking at something as tiny as an electron – just focusing our awareness upon what it is doing for even an instant in time – changes its properties while we are watching it. The experiments suggest that the very act of observation is an act of creation, and that consciousness is doing the creating. 

The word observer simply has to be crossed off the books, and we must put in the new word participator.

David Bohm, believed that there are deeper or higher planes of creation that hold the template for what happens in our world. It’s from these subtler levels or reality that our physical world originates.

Bohm found that when the particles were in this plasma(a special gaseous state) state, they behaved less like the individual units that we typically think of and more like they were connected to one another as part of a greater existence.

Bohm proposed that if we could see the universe in its entirety from a higher vantage point, the objects in our world would in fact appear as a projection of things happening in another realm that we cannot observe

To describe the difference between implicate and explicate, Bohm gave the analogy of a flowing stream. Using the different ways we can see water flowing in the same stream as a metaphor, Bohm described the illusion of separateness. “On this stream, one may see an ever changing pattern of vorticles, ripples, waves, splashes,etc, which evidently have no independent existence as such.” Although the water disturbances may look separate to us, Bohm viewed them as intimately linked and deeply connected to one another. Such transitory subsistence as may be possessed by these abstracted forms implies only a relative independence [author’s emphasis] rather than absolutely independent existence,” he stated. In other words, they are all part of the same water.

 Undivided Wholeness in Flowing Movement

Bohm offered an ever clearer metaphor to describe how the universe may be thought of as a distributed yet undivided whole. Reflecting on the interrelated nature of creation, he became more convinced that the universe works like a grand cosmic hologram. In a hologram, every portion of whatever the object is contains that object in its entirety, only on a smaller scale.

“As above, so below”, “As within, so without”

The elegant simplicity of the human body offers us a beautiful example of a hologram, one that is already familiar. The DNA from any part of our bodies contains our genetic code – The entire pattern of DNA – for the rest of the body, no matter where it comes from. Whether we sample our hair, a fingernail, or our blood, the genetic pattern that makes us who we are is always there in the code…it’s always the same.

 Just as the universe is constantly changing from implicate to explicate, the flow from the unseen to the seen is what makes up the dynamic current of creation.

Commenting on the new translations of the Dead Sea Scrolls fragments known as The Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice, its translators summarize the content: “What happens on earth is but a pale reflection of that greater, ultimate reality.”

Just as a movie screen reflects without judgement the image of whatever or whoever has been filmed, the Matrix appears to provide an unbiased surface for our inner experiences and beliefs to be seen in the world.

Within the Divine Matrix, however, the separation between art and artist disappears: We are the canvas, as well as the images upon it; we are the tools, as well as the artist using them.

The very idea of us creating from within our own creation brings to mind one of those Walt Disney cartoons that were common on black-and-white television back in the ’50s and ’60s. We would first see the hand of an unindentified artist sketch a well-known cartoon character such as Mickey Mouse on a drawing pad. As the image was being formed, it would suddenly become animated and lifelike. Then Mickey would begin to create his own drawings of other cartoon characters from within the sketch itself. Suddenly the original artist was no longer needed and out of the picture…literally.

We may think of ourselves as perpetual artists, building a creation that is ever changing and without end.

We are being surrounded by a malleable world of our own making.

We are creators ourselves. 

As miraculous as such a reality may sound, all of these things- and much more – are possible within the realm of the Divine Matrix. The key is not only to understand how it works; we also need a language to communicate our desires that is recognizable to this ancient web of energy.

 The Vedas, for example, speak of a unified field of “pure consciousness” that bathes and permeates all of creations. In these traditions, our experiences of thought, feeling, emotion, and belief – and all the judgment that they create – are viewed as disturbances, interruptions in a field that is otherwise smooth and motionless.

 For many people, the breakthroughs in the world of quantum physics are little more than interesting facts – things to talk about at conferences or workshops or over a Starbucks latte. Yet, as deep as the implications go and as high as the philosophy carries us, the discoveries seem to have minimal relevance in our everyday lives. What good does it do, to know that a particle of matter can be in two places at once or that electrons can travel faster than Einstein said they could if this knowledge doesnt add to our lives in some way? It’s only when we can connect these mind boggling discoveries to the healing of our bodies or to what we experience in the malls, living rooms, airports, and classrooms of our lives that they become important to us.

 I’ve written this book for one reason: To offer a sense of hope, possibility and empowerment in a world that often makes us feel small, ineffective, and helpless.

Discovery 1: There is a field of energy that connects all of creation.

Discovery 2: This field plays the role of a container, a bridge and a mirror for the beliefs within us.

Discovery 3: The field is nonlocal and holographic. Every part of it is connected to every other, and each piece mirrors the whole on a smaller scale.

Discovery 4: We communicate wiath the field through the language of emotion.

From the perspective of life as a universally connected hologram, here is already there, and then has always been now.

If you have always sought to answer the questions, “Are we really connected, and if so, how deeply does that connection go?” and “How much power do we really have to change the world?” then you will like this book.

Chapter 1

Q: What is in the space between?

A: The Divine Matrix

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are…part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” – Max Planck

The divine matrix is the container that holds the universe, teh bridge between all things, and the mirror that shows us what we have created.

 Additionally, when the focus of our lives becomes how to avoid disease rather than how to live in a healthy way, how to stay out of war rather than how to cooperate in peace, and how to create new weapons rather than how to live in a world where armed conflict has become obsolete, clearly the path we are on has become one of survival. In such mode, no one is truly happy – nobody really “wins”.

On the particle level, everything appears to be connected and infinite.

We appear to live in a “nonlocal” universe where everything is always connected.

 Dean Radin, senior scientist for the Institute of Noetic Sciences, has been a pioneer in exploring just what it means for us to live in such a world. “Nonlocality,” he explains, “means that there are ways in which things that appear to be separate are, in fact, not separate.” There are aspects of us, Radin suggests, that extend beyond the here-and-now and allow us to be spread throughout space and time. In other words, the “us” that lives in our physical selves isnt limited by the skin and hair that define our bodies.

Everything in our world is connected to everything else.

To tap the force of the universe itself, we must see ourselves as part of the world rather than separate from it.

Manifestation begins with the wilingness to make room in our beliefs for something that supposedly doesnt exist. We create that “something” through the force of consciouness and awareness.

In the Hopi creation story, it is said that the current cycle of our world began long ago when Spider Grandmother emerged into the emptiness of this world. The first thing she did was to spin the great web that connects all things, and through it she created the place where her children would live their lives.

Since the time of the ancient Greeks, those who believed in a universal field of energy that connects everything have simply referred to it as the ether. In Greek mythology, ether was thought of as the essence of space itself and described as the “air breathed by the gods”. Both Phytagoras and Aristotle identified it as the mysterious fifth element of creation, following the four familiar elements of fire, air, water, and earth.

Contradicting the traditional views of most scientists today, some of the greatest mind in history have not only believed that ether exists; many of them even took its existence one step further. They said that ether is necessary for the laws of physics to work as they do. During the 1600s, Sir Isaac Newton, the father of modern science, used the word ether to describe an invisible substance that permeates the entire universe, which he believed was responsible for gravity as well as the sensations of the body.

It wasnt until the 19th century that the man who proposed electromagnetic theory, James Clerk Maxwell, formally offered a scientific description of the ether that connects all things. He described it as a “material substance of a more subtle kind than visible bodies, supposed to exist in those parts of space which are apparently empty.

 Einstein stated that ether is necessary for the laws of physics to exist: “In such space [without ether] there not only would be no propagation of light, but also no possibility of existence for standards of space and time.”

Energy connecting everything in the universe is also part of what it connects!

Rather than thinking of the field as separate from everyday reality, the experiments tell us that the mundane visible world actually originates as the field: It’s as if the blanket of the Divine Matrix is spread smoothly throughout the universe, and every once in a while it “wrinkles” here and there into a rock, tree, planet, or person that we recognize. Ultimately, all of these things are just ripples in the field.

Science is simply a language to describe the natural world, along with our relationship to it and the universe beyond. And it is only one language, there have been others (such as alchemy and spirituality, for example) that were used long before modern science ever came along.

Quantum means “a discrete quantity of electromagnetic energy” – thus, it is the stuff that our world is made of when we reduce it to its essence. Quantum physicists soon found that what looks like the solid world to us is really not solid at all.

Quantum physics, then, is the study of the things that happen on teh very small scale of the forces that underlie our physical world.

 What is in the Space Between?

If we believe that the space between any two things is empty, then it seems like a tremendous waste as well. Scientists believe that more than 90 percent of the cosmos is “missing” and appears to us as empty space. That means that of the entire universe as we know it, only 10 percent has anything in it. Do you really believe that the 10 percent of creation we occupy is all there is?

If it’s really vacant, then there is a big question that must be answered: How can the waves of energy that transmit everything from our cell-phone calls to the reflected light bringing this page’s words to your eyes travel from one place to another? Just as water carries ripples from the place where a stone is tossed into a pond, something must exist that conveys the vibrations of life from one point to another.

Within the emptiness we call “space”, something is actually there.

Nature abhors a vacuum. 

To being with, it would be a very dark place. While we could turn a flashlight “on”, for example, its illumination couldnt travel anywhere because there would be nothing for the light waves to pass through. It would be as if we would be thrown a stone into a dried up pond and were looking for ripples on the surface.

Early in the 20th century, Einstein made reference to the mysterious force that he was certain exists in what we see as the universe around us. “Nature shows us only the tail of the lion.”

What makes the experiment of University of Geneva in Switzerland so interesting is that when the twin particles reached the place where they had to follow one course or the other, they both made precisely the same choices and traveled the same path each time. Without fail, the results were identical every time the experiment was conducted.

Even though conventional wisdom states that the twins are separate and have no communication with one another, they act as if they are still connected! Physicists call this mysterious connection “quantum entanglement.”

The Origin of The Matrix

Our universe began with a massive release of energy a long time ago.

Researchers have calculated that just fractions of a second before the big bag occured, our entire universe was much, much smaller than it is today. Computer models suggest that it was so small, in fact, that it was tightly compressed into one tiny ball. With all the “empty” space removed from what we see as the universe today, that ball is believed to have been about the size of a single green pea!

While it may have been tiny, it certainly wasnt cool, however. The models suggest that the temperature within that compact space was an unimaginable 18 billion million million million degrees Fahrenheit.

As the big bang’s explosive foce ripped into the emptiness of the existing void, it carried with it more than just the heat and light that we would expect. It also burst forth as a pattern of energy that became the blueprint for all that is now and all that can ever be. It is this pattern that is the subject of ancient myth, timeless lore, and mystical wisdom. With names that range from the Buddhist Sutra’s “net” of Indra, to the Hopi tradition’s “web” of Spider Grandmother, the echo of that pattern remains today.

How can we be so sure that everything in the universe is really connected? To answer this question, lets go back to the big bang and the University of Geneva experiment in the previous section. As different as they appear from one another, there is a subtle similarity: In each, the connection that is being explored exists between two things that were once physically joined. In the case of the experiment, splitting a single photon into two identical particles created the twins, and this was done to assure that both were alike in every way. The fact that the photons and the particles from the big bang were once physically part of one another is key to their connectivity. It appears that once something is joined, it is always connected, whether it remains physically linked or not.

The experiments suggest that regarless of how much space separates two things, once joined they are always connected.

Technically, everything that was merged within our pea-sized cosmos 13 to 20 billion years ago is still connected.

 1. The first principle suggest that because everything exists within the Divine Matrix, all things are connected. If this is so, then what we do in one part of our lives must have an effect and influence on other parts.

 2. The second principle proposes that the Divine Matrix is holographic – meaning that any portion of the field contains everything in the field. As consciousness itself is believed to be holographic, this signifies that the prayer we make in our living room, for example, already exists with out loved ones and at the place where it is intended. In other words, there is no need to send our prayers anywhere, because they already exist everywhere.

3. The third principle implies the past, present and future are intimately joined. The Matrix appears to be the container that holds time, providing for a continuity between the choices of our present and the experiences of our future.

We are participants rather than victims of forces that we cannot see and dont understand. To be in such place is where our empowerment really begins.

Chapter Two

Shattering The Paradigm: The experiments that change everything

We appear to be the very energy that is forming the cosmos, as well as the beings who experience what we are creating. That is because we are consciousness, and consciousness appears to be the same “stuff” from which the universe is made.

Wheeler’s study have led him to believe that we might live in a world that is actually created by consciousness itself – a process that he calls a participatory universe.

The very building materials of the universe are these acts of observer-participancy.

No elementary phenomenon is a phenomenon until it is an observed (or registered) phenomenon.

*(Believing is Seeing)

The big bang was space itself bursting into a new kind of energy, as that energy! Just as the origin of the universe was space itself manifesting energetically, the Matrix is reality itself – all possibilities, ever moving, as the enduring essence that conects all things.

Further in the Vedic text, it becomes clear that all things exist because “the One manifests as the many, the formless putting on forms.”

In different language, we could think of the Divine Matrix in precisely the same way – as the force before other forces. It is the container that holds the universe as well as the blueprint for everything that happens in the physical world.

The Experiments that Change Everything

Experiment I: Poponin and Gariaev at the Russian Academy of Sciences, a series of experiments that suggest that human DNA directly affects the physical world through what they believed was a new field of energy connecting the two.

Experiment II: In a 1993 study reported in the journal Advances, the Army performed experiments to determine precisely whether the emotion/DNA connection continues following a separation, and if so, at what distances?

In each experiment, the interval measured between the emotion and the cell’s response was zero – the effect was simultaneous. Whether the cells were in the same room or separated by hundreds of miles, the results were the same. When the donor had an emotional experience, the DNA reacted as if it were still connected to the donor’s body in some way.

While this may sound a little spooky to us at first, consider this: If there is a quantum field that links all matter, then everything must be – and remain – connected. Dr.Jeffrey Thompson, a colleague of Cleve Backster, states so eloquently, from this viewpoint: “There is no place where one’s body actually ends and no place where it begins.”

Experiment III: Experiment conducted between 1992 and 1995 by HeartMath implicate that human emotions changed the shape of the DNA. Without physically touching it or doing anything other than creating precise feelings in their bodies, the participants were able to influence the DNA molecules in the beaker.

All these experiments suggest two similar conclusion, which are the crux of this book:

1. There is something “out there”: the matrix of an energy that connects any one thing with everything else in the universe. This connective field accounts for the unexpected results of the experiments.

2. The DNA in our bodies gives us access to the energy that connects our universe, and emotion is the key to tapping in to the field.

PART II: THE BRIDGE BETWEEN IMAGINATION AND REALITY: HOW THE DIVINE MATRIX WORKS

 

Chapter Three: Are We Passive Observers or Powerful Creators?

“So, why is the universe as big as it is? Because we are here.” – John Wheller (1911 – ), physicist

“Imagination creates reality….Man is all imagination.” – Neville (1905-1972), visionary and mystic

“Man did not weave the web of life – he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

 In a participatory universe, the act of focusing our consciousness – of us looking somewhere and examining the world – is an act of creation in and of itself. Consciousness creates!

Everything that happens to us or is done by us – is the product of our consciousness and absolutely nothing else. Our ability to apply this understanding through the power of imagination is all that stands between us and the miracles of our lives.

If there is in fact a single field of energy that connects everything in our world, and if the Divine Matrix works the way the evidence suggests, then there can be no them and us, only we.

We all have the power we need to create all the changes we choose.

 “Man is all imagination” – William Blake

 The secret, Neville revealed, was that rather than simply wishing for his health, since the day of their meeting, he had lived from the “assumption of already being well and healed.”

 It is our ability to feel as if our dreams have already come to life, our wishes are fulfilled, and our prayers already answered.

 While we may identify milestones and set goals to get us closer to our accomplishment, in our minds we are always “on our way” to the goal, rather than “in” the experience of achieving it. This is precisely why Neville’s admonition that we must “enter the image” of our heart’s desire and “think from it” is so powerful in our lives.

The key to success of martial artists in breaking a concrete block or stack of boards lies in where they place their attention. When they choose to break a concrete block, for example, the very last thing in their mind is the point of contact where their hand will touch the surface. Just as Neville sugested in his instruction to the dying man, the key is to put our focus in the place of the completed act: the healing already accomplished or the brick already broken.

In this way, they are thinking from the point of completion, rather than about the difficulty of getting to there. They are experiencing the joy of what it feels like to accomplish the act, as opposed to all the things that must occur before they can be successful.

On that day, our karate instructor walked into the room and asked us to do something very different from the form and movement practices that were familiar to us. He explained that he would seat himself in the center of the thick mat where he honed our skills, close his eyes, and go into a meditation. During this exercise, he would stretch his arms out on either side of this body, with his palms open and facedown. He asked us to give him a couple of minutes to “anchor” himself in this T position and then invited us to do anything that we could to move him from his place.

The men in our class outnumbered the women by about two to one, and there had always been a friendly competition between the sexes. On that day, however, there was no such division. Together, we all sat close to our instructor, silent and motionless. We watched as he simply walked to the center of the mat, sat down with his legs crossed, closed his eyes, held out his arms, and changed his breathing pattern. I remember that i was fascinated and observed closely as his chest swelled and sank, slower and slower with each breath until it was hard to tell that he was breathing at all.

With a nod of agreement, we moved closer and tried to move our instructor from his place. At first, we thought that this was going to be an easy exercise, and only a few of us tried. As we grabbed his arms and legs, we pushed and pulled in different directions with absolutely no success. Amazed, we changed our strategy and gathered on one side of him to use our combined weight to force him in the opposite direction. Still, we couldnt even budge his arms or the fingers on his hands!

After a few moments, he took a deep breath, opened his eyes, and with the gentle humor we’d come to respect, he asked, “What happened? How come i am still sitting here?” After a big laugh that eased the tension and with a familiar gleam in his eyes, he explained what had just happened.

“When i closed my eyes,” he said, “I had a vision that was like a dream, and that dream became my reality. I pictured two mountains, one on either side of my body, and myself on the ground between the peaks.” As he spoke, i immediately saw the image in my mind’s eye and felt that he was somehow imbuing us with a direct experience of his vision.

“Attached to each of my arms,” he continued, “I saw a chain that bound me to the top of each mountain. As long as the chains were there, i was connected to the mountains in a way that nothing could change.” Our instructor looked around at the faces that were riveted on each word he was sharing. With a big grin, he concluded, “Not even a classroom full of my best students could change my dream.”

To make your future dream a present fact.

Assume the feeling of our wish fulfilled.

  • The laws of physics are not universal, because on small scales thing behave differently from the way they do in everyday world

  • Energy can express itself either as a wave or a particle, and sometimes as both

  • The consciousness of the observer determines how energy will behave

The equations of quantum physics dont describe the actual existence of particles. In other words, the laws cant tell us where the particles are and how they act onec they get there. They describe only the potential for the particles’ existence – that is, where they may be, how they might behave, and what their properties could be like. 

The object of our attention becomes the reality of our world.

Key 7: The focus of our awareness becomes the reality of our world

Consciousness plays a key role in the universe.

Figure 4. When a single opening is available in the barrier, the particle behaves just as we would expect: It begins and ends its journey as particle

Figure 5. When two openings are available, the particle acts like a wave, passing through both opening at the same time.

The Copenhagen Interpretation

Figure 6. In the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum reality, it is the focus of our consciousness that determines which of the many possibilities (A,B,C,D and so on) becomes our reality.

Figure 7. In the many-worlds interpretation of quantum reality, there are an infinite number of possibilities (A, B, C, D and so on) that already exist. Each possibility exists in its own universe that the other possibilities cant see. As with the Copenhagen interpretation, it is the focus of our consciousness that determines which possibilities becomes our reality.

The Penrose Interpretation

Figure 8. In the Penrose interpretation, there are many possibilities (A, B, C, D and so on) that eventually collapse into a single reality simply because it requires too much energy to sustain them all indefinitely. While all of the possibilities exist at some point in time, the state that needs the lowest amount of energy is the most stable and the one that we experience as our reality.

As my native American friend Joseph suggested in the canyon, we dont need machines to create the miraculous effects that we see in quantum particles. Through the power of our forgotten inner technology, we can heal, bilocate, be everywhere at once, remote view, connect telepathically, choose peace, and do everything in between. It is all about our power to focus consciousness, which is the great secret of some of our most ancient and cherished traditions.

Reality Making 101

In the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, it is believed that reality can exist only where our mind creates a focus.

It is only when we direct our attention while we are having a feeling about the object of our focus that a possible reality becomes that “real” experience.

Emotion is the key to choosing reality.

In a universe of many possible realities, there are numerous potential answers. Somewhere among all those alternative realities there exists a scenario where the disease never even occured.

“Which possibility do we pick? Which reality does our loved one or the doctor decide on?”

The present reality is not set in stone. Rather it appears to be soft and malleable. In Neville’s account, the young man’s doctors had made a diagnosis (picked a reality) with an expected outcome. Not knowing that he had a choice, the man initially believed them and bought into their version of reality. It was only when he was offered another possibility and he accepted it that his body responded to his new belief- and did so quickly.

Einstein made a famous statement that we can not solve a problem while we are in the same level of thinking that created it. Similarly, we cant change a reality if we remain in the same consciousness that made it.

The answers begins with our willingness to look beyond the illusion of what the world is showing us. In the example of our loved ones’ illness, we are invited to see beyond the sickness that they have experienced, thinking about them as already healed and feeling what it is like to be with them in this new reality.

Key 8: To simply say that we choose a new reality is not enough!

To choose a quantum possibility, we must become that way of being.

Speaking Quantum: Feeling is The Key

What we see as Reality is what it is because of our presence.

“You have never seen our prayers,” he said, “because a prayer cannot be seen.” Adjusting the heavy wool robes beneath his feet, the abbot continued, “What you have seen is what we do to create the feeling in our bodies. Feeling is the prayer!”

It is human feeling and emotion that affect the stuff our reality is made of – it is human feeling and emotion that affect the stuff our reality is made of – it is our inner language that changes the atoms, electrons, and photons of the outer world. However, this is less about the actual words we utter and more about the feeling that they create within us. It is the language of emotion that speaks to the quantum forces of the universe…Feeling is what the Divine Matrix recognizes.

Key 9: Feeling is the language that “speaks” to the Divine Matrix. Feel as though your goal is accomplished and your prayer is already answered.

Not just any feeling will do

Compassion

In order to achieve compassion, we must approach a circumstance without a strong expectation of the rightness or wrongness of that situation’s outcome. In other words, we must perceive it without judgement and ego.

It takes more than a regular state of consciousness to make a quantum possibility a present reality. In fact, to do so he indicates that we must be in what he describes as a “non-ordinary state of consciousness”

The great secret to bringing the focus of our imagination, beliefs, healing, and peace into a present reality is that we must do so without a strong attachment to the outcome of our choice. In other words, we are invited to pray without our judgements of what should or should not be happening.

Key 10: Not just any feeling will do. The ones that create must be without ego and judgement.

“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field. I will meet you there.” – Sufi poet Rumi

 It seems that the stronger our desire to change our world, the more elusive our power to do so becomes. This is because what we want is so often ego based. If it werent, the change wouldnt hold such significance for us. As we mature into the state of consciousness where we know that we can alter our reality, however, it also seems that it becomes less important for us to do so.

Similar to the way our desire to drive a car, for example, wanes after we actually begin to do so, in having the ability to work miracles of healing and peace, the urgency to make them happen seems to appear. This may be because along with knowing that we can change things comes an acceptance of the world just the way it is.

It is this freedom of possesing power without attaching so much importance to it that allows us to be even more effective in our prayers.

Although every act was undoubtedly well intentioned, it often involved a strong attachment to having or making the healing of our loved ones happen. It entailed a belief that a miraculous recovery was necessary. And if the healing still needed to occur, the implication was that it had not taken place yet – if it had, we wouldnt be asking for it in our prayers. It is as if by wanting the outcome of healing, the efforts to create it actually reinforced the reality that the disease was present!

Being conscious is an act of creation unto itself.

Reality making is more than we do…it is what we are!

Key 11: We must become in our lives the things that we choose to experience as our world.

Gratitude —>  “That which you have will save you if you bring it forth from yourselves. That which you do not have within you [will] kill you if you do not have it within you.” – Aramaic versions of the Gospels

Life doesnt always follow the rules of physics

Those who do the bilocating are generally masters of the power of human emotions such as love and compassion.

Key 12: We are not bound by the laws of physics as we know them today.

Chapter Four: Once Connected, Always Connected: Living in A Holographic Universe

To see a world in a grain of sand,

and Heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity in an hour.

– William Blake (1757-1827),  poet and visionary mystic.

Figure 9. When something is holographic, it exists wholly within every fragment of itself, no matter how many pieces it is divided into. This illustration helps convey the idea that no matter how finely we divide the universe – from the four parts shown above to a galaxy, a human, or an atom – each segment mirrors the whole universe, only on a smaller scale.

Key 13: In a holographic “something”, every piece of the something mirrors the whole something.

Is it possible that we live in a universe where the information between photons, the prayer for our loved ones, or the desire for peace in a place halfway around the world never needs to be transported anywhere to be received?

In some sense there is no separation between my consciousness and his consciousness. The reason why the signals didnt have to travel between photons is because they were already there – they never left from anywhere and were never carried to another location in the conventional sense.

Every place in hologram is a reflection of every other. And a property that exist anywhere within it also exist everywhere else.

In a holographic universe, where each piece already has the whole world mirrored on a smaller scale, all things are already everywhere.

Any change that we wish to see in our world – from healing and safety for our loved ones to peace in the Middle East or any of the 60-plus nations now engaged in armed conflict – doesnt have to be sent from our hearts and minds to the places where it is needed. It is not necessary to “send” anything anywhere. Once our prayers are inside of us, they are already everywhere.

Key 14: The universally connected hologram of consciousness promises that the instant we create our good wishes and prayers, they are already received at their destination.

If everything is really connected and already everywhere all the time, then what happens when we change something in one part of the hologram?

A Change Anywhere Means A Change Everywhere

A small alteration in one place can permanently shift an entire paradigm.

Ervin Laszlo, visionary and philosopher: “All that happens in one place happens also in other places; all that happened at one time happens also at times after that. Nothing is ‘local’, limited to where and when it is happening.”

Key 15: Through the hologram of consciousness, a little change in our lives is mirrored everywhere in our world.

Our world could be considered a shadow or a projection of events that are happening in a deeper, underlying reality.

The Power of a Mustard Seed

Within the container of the Divine Matrix, each individual’s mind is part of a larger single awareness.

Every mind contains the pattern of the whole consciousness. And through that link, we each have direct access to the entire pattern. In other words, we all have the power to change the hologram of our world.

 “Maharishi Effect”: One percent of a population practiced the methods of meditation that he offered, there would be a reduction in violence and crime for that population.

When a small percentage of the population achieved peace within themselves, that peace was reflected in the world around them.

Key 16: The minimum number of people required to “jump start” a change in consciousness is the square root of one percent of a population.

Perhaps this is the reason why so many wisdom traditions emphasize the importance of each individual to the whole.

Chapter Five: When Here is There and Then is Now: Jumping Time and Space in the Matrix

 “Time is not at all what it seems. It does not flow in only one direction, and the future exists simultaneously with the past.”

– Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

“Time is/ Too Slow for those who Wait/ Too Swift for those who Fear, / Too Long for those who grieve, / Too Short for those who Rejoice, / But for those who Love, / Time is not.” – Henry Van Dyke.

When Here is There

While we may hold a beautiful seashell in our hand, from a quantum perspective, there is an energetic part of the shell that is everywhere. Because our shell exist beyond the local place where we hold it in our hand, it is said to be “nonlocal”.

A growing number of scientists accept the experimental evidence that the universe, planet, and even our bodies are nonlocal. We are everywhere already and always. As Russel Targ stated in Chapter 4, even though we may be physically separated from one another, we can still be in instantaneous communication – and that is what remote viewing is all about.

The Hopi saw the world as a single entity with everything in it connected at the source.

When Then is Now

It also seems as if the choices of today might actually change what took place yesterday. In 1983, an experiment was designed to test just such possibilities.

For this investigation, physicist John Wheeler proposed using a variation of the famous double slit experiment to test the effects of the present on the past. Here is a brief summary of the original experiment described in Chapter 2.

A Quantum particle (a photon) was fired at a target that could detect how it arrived – either as a particle of matter or as a wave of energy. Before reaching the target, however, it had to pass through the opening in a barrier. The mystery was that the photon somehow “knew” when the barrier had one hole and when it had two.

In the presence of a single opening, the particle traveled and arrived at its destination just the way it began its journey: as a particle. However, in the presence of two holes, while it started off the experiment as a particle, it moved as a wave of energy through both openings at the same time and acted like a wave at its destination.

The outcome: It was determined that since the scientists performing the experiment were the only ones who knew about the openings in the barrier, their knowledge somehow influenced how the photon behaved.

Wheeler’s variation of this experiment included one key difference designed to test his ideas of past and present. He changed the experiment so that the photon is only observed after it has already passed through the barrier, yet before it gets to its destination. In other words, it is already on its way to the target when the decision is made as how it will be viewed.

He designed two very different ways to know that the photon has reached its target: One uses a lens to “see” it visually as a particle, while the other uses a screen that senses it as a wave. This is important, since the previous experiments showed that the photons acted the way they were expected to depending on how they were observed – that is, they were particles when measured as particles and waves when measured as waves.

So in this experiment, if the observer chose to see the photon as a particle, the lens would be in place and the photon would travel through one slit only. If the observer chose to view it as a wave, the screen would remain in place and the photon would pass through both slits as a wave. Here is the clincher: The decision was made after the experiment was under way (the present), yet it determined how the particle behaved when the experiment began (the past). Wheeler named this test the delayed-choice experiment.

Wheeler is suggesting that the choices we make today may, in fact, directly affect things that have already happened in the past.

The bottom line of what this experiment demonstrates is that the behavior of the particles when the experiment begins appears to be determined entirely by things that dont even happen until the experiment is finished. In other words, the present has the power to change what is already occured in the past. And this is the so called quantum-eraser effect: Things that happen after the fact can change (“erase”) the way the particles behave at an earlier point in time.

 It could be we already change our past as we learn from our mistakes, and we have been doing so all the time. Maybe it is so common for our choices to reverberate backward in time that this occurs without our knowing it or even giving it a second thought.

Perhaps the world that we see today, as tough as it sometimes appears, is the result of what we have already learned being reflected backward in time. It is certainly something to think about, and at the moment, it appears that research supports this possibility. If this is true and our world does in fact act like a cosmic feedback loop – with the lessons of the present changing the past – then just think about what that means! At the very least, it implies that the world we see today is the result of what we have already learned. And without our lessons, things could be much worse, wouldnt they?

Human emotion (beliefs, expectations, and feelings) are the language that the Divine Matrix recognizes.

PART III: MESSAGES FROM THE DIVINE MATRIX: LIVING, LOVING, AND HEALING IN QUANTUM AWARENESS

 Chapter Six: The Universe is Talking to Us: Messages from The Matrix

“When love and hate are both absent, everything becomes clear and undisguised. Make the smallest distinction, however, and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.”

– Seng-t’san, 6th century philosopher

“We are the mirror as well as the face in it.” – Rumi, 13th century poet

If we are conscious, by definition, we are creating.

The world is nothing more – or less – than the Matrix mirroring our deepest and truest beliefs.

The everyday world is said to be the reflection of a deeper reality carved into the fabric of the universe – a reality that we simply can not see from our place within it.

Ancient traditions suggest, in fact, that the unseen world is more real than the visible one! As Bohm said in the Introduction, we simply cant glimpse this “deeper reality” from where we are in space-time.

While we may not be able to see directly into this invisible realm, we do have some indication of what is happening there because we see its reflection in our everyday lives. From this perspective, our daily experiences serve as messages from these deeper realities – communication from within the Divine Matrix itself. And just as we must understand the words of any language to know its content, we must recognize the language of the Divine Matrix so that we can benefit from what it is telling us.

Sometimes the messages that come through are direct and cant be mistaken, while at other times, they are so subtle that we miss them altogether. Often, however, we may think that we are being shown one thing when, in fact, the messages are telling us something very different.

Things Are not Always What They Seem

“A sudden gust of wind hit me at that instant and made my eyes burn. I stared toward the area in question. There was absolutely nothing out of the ordinary.

‘I can’t see a thing,’ i said.

‘You just feel it,’ he replied..

‘What? The wind?’

‘Not just the wind,’ he said sternly. ‘It may seem to be wind to you, because wind is all you know.'”

In this dialogue, the Yaqui Indian sorcerer Don Juan teaches his student Carlos Castenada about the subtle realities of the invisible world. In his book Journey to Ixtlan, Castenada, an anthropologist documenting the ways of the ancient shaman, learned very quickly that he couldnt trust the filters of his perceptions as he would been conditioned to do in the past. The world, he found out, is alive on levels that are both seen and unseen.

In the example above, Castenada’s teacher reminds him that it only seems like the wind because that is what he knows. In reality, it could be the wind, or the feeling of a breeze against his face and flowing through his hair may be the energy of a spirit making itself known. Castenada rapidly discovered that such an experience would never just be “just the wind” again.

Within the context of the Divine Matrix, we are part of each blade of grass, as well as every rock in every stream and river. We are part of each drop of rain and even the cool air that brushes against our faces when we walk out of our homes first thing in the morning.

We all know that the longer we are in the presence of people, places and things that surround us, the more we feel comfortable with them. For most of us, walking into the living room of our house, for example, certainly feels better than entering the “living room” of a hotel in another city. Even though the hotel may be newer and have all the latest fabrics, carpet, and upholstery, it just doesnt feel like “home”. When we do experience something that way, our comfort comes from a fine-tuning of the subtle energy that brings us into balance with our world – we call that equilibirium resonance.

To some degree, we are in resonance with everything from our cars to our homes (and even the appliances that we rely on each day), which is why we affect other people, our surroundings, and our world simply by our presence. It should come as no surprise, then, that when something changes within us or the things around us, those changes will show up in our lives…and they do.

Things that are as familiar with us as we are with them simply seem to work better when they are in our presence.

The very essence that has been used for thousand of years to represent emotion: the medium of water.

Key 17: The Divine Matrix serves as the mirror in our world of the relationships that we create in our beliefs.

The Lord’s Prayer, the common Western translation begins: “Our Father, who art in Heaven,” acknowledging this separation. In this interpretation, we are “here”, while God is somewhere else far away. The original Aramaic texts, however offer a different view of our relationship with our Heavenly Father. A translation of the same phrase begins, “Radiant One: You shine within us, outside us – even darkness shines – when we remember,” reinforcing the idea that the Creator isnt separate and distant. Rather, the creative force of our Father – whatever the meaning we give to it – is not only with us, it is us and permeates all that we know as our world.

Chapter Seven: Reading The Mirrors of Relationship: Messages from Ourselves

“Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.” – Ernest Holmes (1887-1960)  founder of Science of Mind

Our relationships show us our joys and loves, as well as our fears. But because we seldom become “stuck” in joy, purely pleasureable relationships are generally not the triggers for the profound lessons of life.

Relationships are our opportunity to see ourselves in everyway imaginable.

Key 19: Our true beliefs are mirrored in our most intimate relationships.

FIVE ANCIENT MIRRORS OF RELATIONSHIP

The First Mirror: Reflections of the Moment

The Second Mirror: Reflections of What We Judge in the Moment

The Third Mirror: Reflections of What We’ve Lost, Given Away, or Had Taken from Us

The Fourth Mirror: Reflections of Our Dark Night of the Soul

The Fifth Mirror: Reflections of Our Greatest Act of Compassion

Our relationship mirrors listed in the order that we usually learn them. In general, the most obvious mirrors are recognized first, allowing the power of the deeper, subtler ones to emerge and become clear.

If we dont like what the world is showing us, we should look at ourselves.

In 1970, one of my martial-arts instructors shared the secret of reading an opponent: “Each person in competition is a mirror to you. As your personal mirror, your opponent will show you who you are in the moment. By observing how he approaches you, you are seeing his reaction to how he perceives you.”

I invite you to examine your relationships with the people who are closest to you. Next, acknowledge the traits and characteristics that irritate you to no end and just seem to make you crazy. Once you do so, ask yourself the following question: Are these people showing me myself in this moment?

To survive in our lives, we have all compromised huge parts of who we are. Each time we do so, we lose something inside in ways that are socially acceptable, yet nonetheless painful.

Every piece of ourselves that we have given away to be where we are in life today, there is the emptiness that is left behind, waiting to be filled.

When we find our “missing” pieces in others, we will be powerfully and irresistibly drawn to them. We may even believe that we “need” them in our lives, until we remember that what we are so attracted to them is something that we still have within us…it is simply sleeping. In the awareness that we still possess those characteristics and traits, we may unmask them and reincorporate them back into our lives. And when we do, we suddenly find that we are no longer powerfully magnetically, and inexplicably drawn to the person who originally mirrored those traits to us.

Recognizing our feelings toward others for what they are and not for what our conditioning has made them out to be is the key to the third mirror of relationship. That unexplainable feeling that we have when we are with someone else – that magnetism and fire that makes us so alive – is really us! It is the essence of those parts of us that we have lost and our recognition that we want them back in our lives.

Maybe you simply perceive a beauty in this person that you feel is missing within you for the moment. Possibly it will be the individual’s innocence in life, the grace with which he or she moves down the grocery aisle, his or her confidence while performing the task at hand, or simply the radiance of his or her vitality.

Your encounter with the person need last only seconds, perhaps a few minutes at most. Those brief instants are your opportunity to feel the joy and exhilaration of the moment. This is you finding part of yourself in another person, something that you already have, as well as the feeling of what it is like to have that something awakened.

In those feelings, we find the things that we long in ourselves, the things that are still with us yet are hidden in our masks of who we believe we are.

A Dark Night of the Soul is a time in your life when you will be drawn into a situation that represents what, for you, are your fears. A time like this generally comes when you least expect it, and usually without warning. You can only be drawn into this dynamic when your mastery of life signals that you are ready! Then just when it looks like life is perfect, the balance that you have achieved is the signal that you are ready for change.

The purpose of the Dark Night of the Soul is for us to experience and heal our own great fears.

The “Imperfections” are the Perfection

Each mirror is a stepping-stone toward a greater level of personal mastery. Once you know about them, you cant “un-know” them. Once you see them play out in your life, you cant “un-see” them.

From my perspective, we are incapable of anything other than a spiritual life. To put it in another way, as beings of spirit, we are capable only of spiritual experiences. Regardless of what life may look like, i believe that each endeavor and all our paths are leading us to the same place. From that belief, the activities of every day cant be separate from our spiritual evolution – they are our spiritual evolution!

Perhaps all of the challenges that were in his life at the moment were his spiritual path.

Key 20: We must become in our lives the very things that we choose to expereince in our world.

In the Gnostic work The Thunder: Perfect Mind, for example, a 3rd century woman declares that she is nothing more and nothing less than the embodiment of all the possibilities that already exist in every person. “I am the first and the last,” she states. “I am the whore and the holy one. I am the wife and the virgin…I am the mother of my father and the sister of my husband…In my weakness, do not forsake me, and do not be afraid of my power…Why have you hated me in your councels?”

I have seen this film (Dances with Wolves) on many occasions, and each time, the emotion that this scene elicits from the audience is powerful, genuine – and to some people, a mystery. Why do we feel so much sadness from seeing the wolf Two Socks hunted and killed? they ask. The answer may surprise them. The reason is because there is a good possibility that the sadness they feel may have very little to do with what has just happened on the screen. There is a good possibility that within the space of a few minutes, the movie has triggered feelings that they have locked away every time they have lost something precious or had it taken away from them.

Ultimately, it is not surprising to discover that the feelings evoked while watching a film probably have more to do with us – what we have lost within ourselves to survive our experiences of life – than the people who are going through their drama in the movie. Without knowing that we have given so much of ourselves away, we may find ourselves reacting to the trigger of books, movies, or situations we identify with. This is our way of reminding ourselves that we still recognize the things that we have lost in order to survive the hurtful moments of life.

Our lives seem to work this way: Each of us reflects for others different pieces of the whole.

Someone must do it first. One person must choose a new way of being and live that difference in the presence of others so that it can be witnessed and sealed into the pattern.

Each time someone else makes the same choice, it is a little easier because another person did it first.

The key to their success is that in order to do so, they must transcend the things that hurt them without getting lost in the experience. In other words, Martin Luther King Jr, couldnt bring a stop to hate by hating. Nelson Mandela couldnt have survived more than two decades in a South African prison if he had despised those who imprisoned him. In the same way, it is impossible to end war by creating more wars.

In a universe that mirrors our beliefs, it is clear that angry people cant create a peaceful world.

20 Keys of Conscious Creation

Key 1: The Divine Matrix is the container that holds the universe, the bridge between all things, and the mirror that shows us what we have created

Key 2: Everything in our world is connected to everything else

Key 3: To tap the force of the universe itself, we must see ourselves as part of the world rather than separate from it.

Key 4: Once something is joined, it is always connected, whether it remains physically linked or not

Key 5: The act of focusing our consciousness is an act of creation. Consciousness creates!

Key 6: We have all the power we need to create all the changes we choose!

Key 7: The focus of our awareness becomes the reality of our world.

Key 8: To simply say that we choose a new reality is not enough!

Key 9: Feeling is the language that “speaks” to the Divine Matrix. Feel as though your goal is accomplished and your prayer is already answered.

Key 10: Not just any feeling will do. The ones that create must be without ego and judgement.

Key 11: We must become in our lives the things that we choose to experience as our world.

Key 12: We are not bound by the laws of physics as we know them today

Key 13: In a holographic “something”, every piece of the something mirrors the whole something.

Key 14: The universally connected hologram of consciousness promises that the instant we create our good wishes and prayers, they are already received at their destination.

Key 15: Through the hologram of consciousness, a little change in our lives is mirrored everywhere in our world.

Key 16: The minimum number of people required to “jump-start” a change in consciousness is the square root of one percent of a population.

Key 17: The Divine Matrix serves as the mirror in our world of the relationships that we create in our beliefs.

Key 18: The root of our “negative” experiences may be reduced to one of three universal fears (or a combination of them): abandonment, low self-worth, or lack of trust.

Key 19: Our true beliefs are mirrored in our most intimate relationships

Key 20: We must become in our lives the very things that we choose to experience in our world.

The only difference between those isolated particles and us is that we are made of a lot of them held together by the power of consciousness itself.

The ancient mystics reminded our hearts, and modern experiences have proven to our minds, that the single most powerful force in the universe lives within each of us. And that is the great secret of creation itself: the power to create in the world what we imagine in our beliefs.

Keep walking, though there is no place to get to.

Dont try to see through the distances.

That is not for human beings.

Move within, but dont move the way fear makes you move.
