The Power of Awareness

The Power of Awareness

We are not onlookers peering into the unified field–we are the unified field. Every person is an infinite being, unlimited by time and space. To reach beyond the physical body, we extend the influence of intelligence. As you sit in your chair, every thought you are thinking creates a wave in the unified field. It ripples through all the layers of ego, intellect, mind, senses, and matter, spreading out in wider and wider circles. You are like a light radiating not photons but consciousness.

As they radiate, your thoughts have an effect on everything in nature. Physics already recognizes this fact for sources of physical energy: Any light, whether a star or a candle, sends its waves throughout the quantum field of electromagnetism, going as far as infinity in all directions. We are bounded in our awareness; being confined to the waking state keeps us from perceiving the subtle changes we are producing everywhere. Man moves, lives, and breathes in the cosmic body. If this is so, then nature is as alive as we are; the whole distinction between “in here” and “out there” is a false one, as if the heart cells disregarded the skin cells because they were not on the inside.

The material level of the world is quite crude. The real power in nature lies closer to the source, and the ultimate power, the power of awareness, must lie right at the source.
