The All is Mind, the Universe is Mental ~ The Kybalion
Quantum mechanics speaks of the unified field in field theory. There is classical field theory and there is a field theory in psychology and sociology. Referring to the Kybalion, there is the law of correspondence that reads as above so below, as below so above, as within so without and as without so within. My point in this is that if we see fields in the material world, then it follows by the law of correspondence that there are spiritual fields, and my view is that spirit and consciousness are one in the same, and so, the mind at large, or the-all is at its basic foundational level a field as well. I would like to call it the divine universal conscious field. It is the creative source of all that is. And, we are all points of consciousness, or conscious agents within the field. In fact, all things in the material world to one degree or another are conscious agents participating in and sustaining ongoing creation.
This blog post took a serendipitous and synchronistic turn as I am writing it. I often post some of my ideas in Facebook groups that I am a member of, and I did for this one on a group called Messy Conversations. It was designed to be a safe place for conversations with people in the process of deconstructing their Christian beliefs. One of the members, a Facebook friend of mine named Dr. Paul Fitzgerald, asked me if I was familiar with Rupert Sheldrake and morphic resonance? I was familiar with Sheldrake but not morphic resonance. In looking it up on the internet, I found that he was speaking of morphic fields in biology. I wasn’t aware of the existence of these fields, but it seems that they connect all kinds of species of both plants and animals including humans. The point was made that because of these connective fields, teaching a trick to a rat in the USA, say at Harvard, would make it much easier to teach the same trick to rats in Europe because of the connection of the fields, and the memories they store. These fields reach everywhere within the species so the memory in the field is picked up by rats in Europe simultaneously. The article went on to explain that these fields exist in a variety of areas including the mind of humans, or in other words, point toward a unified field of human consciousness, and it is easy for me to add to the name, the “divine” unified field of consciousness. This is what I believe to be the creative source of the universe which includes humans such as you and I.
I am no scientist, so I do not have a scientific description of the divine field of consciousness, but I believe I have an intuitive description. It radically changes my view of heaven and what the Apostle Paul called the heavenlies or heavenly places. It is quite likely a two-dimensional field of consciousness. So, when Paul says we are seated in heavenly places in Christ, he is referring to this two-dimensional field of consciousness in which everything that exists, exists. Furthermore, when Paul says that the Colossians were dead, and their life was hidden in God, he meant hidden in the divine field of consciousness or heavenly places. Collective consciousness, another name for the divine unified field of consciousness, is the place where collective memory and information is stored. Our brains are like television receivers of this information and the source of all telepathic ability is stored in this field of consciousness. It continually grows by the life experiences of all of the conscious agents that are connected within this field.
This also radically changes my view of God. This divine unified field of consciousness is not personified. It is all encompassing. The individual conscious agents within the field are the creative source. Jesus was the firstborn of many siblings. He was designated to be the word, of the field of consciousness before creation but, then went on to explain that we all are a part of the divine creative word. This should lead us to new vistas of potentiality. We can indeed change, morph reality through consciousness. With our thoughts we can create reality afresh.
