With spiritual faith, your heart and mind open up and guide
you in your search for personal truth. Faith in the
spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible.
Faith may sound like a form of belief, but belief is actually
a fixation upon a version of the truth. When a belief becomes
rigid, seeking and growth are not possible. For example, the
biggest challenge facing quantum physics today is the enormous
shift that is required from previous beliefs about the nature
of reality. Researchers have to shift to a new view where time,
space and physicality are liberated from the constraints which
people previously believed that they had.
If you believe that you exist in a fixed location in space and
that time must always pass you by like clockwork, think again.
Subatomic particles do not share your beliefs about time and
space. They take a much more liberated view. Subatomic
particles pop in and out of physical manifestation millions of
times per second, just when and where they feel like it. Their
disregard for time is perplexing, to say the least, as they
respond immediately to events in their future and even time
travel backwards to alter their past when it suits them.
Now, we can all identify with the idea of creating a different
future based on decisions that we make now, but creating a
different past? Well, that's what subatomic particles do, right
there in the lab. As a result, in the mathematics of quantum
physics today, one of the necessary tools is negative time -
the ability of a particle to send a message into its past in
order to change its own history.
Subatomic particles are friendly by nature. When they bump
into another particle that they take a liking to, and they seem
to like all of them, they become friends and carry on
communicating with each other, for ever. The fact that they may
become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their
willingness to communicate.
The speed of their communications comes as a surprise.
Einstein said that nothing exceeds the speed of light, but
apparently subatomic particles weren't listening when he said
that. They communicate over huge distances virtually instantly.
If there is a limit to the speed of transmitted thought, then
that speed of thought has to be millions of times faster than
the speed of light.
Subatomic particles, by their very freedom, serve to remind us
of our true potential as conscious beings in a conscious
universe. We are limited only by our personal collection of
beliefs, our belief system. We also share our part of a larger,
societal belief system, the consensus reality.
Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual
path possible. With spiritual faith - an open heart and an open
mind - we can discover more about today's New Reality and what
it means to humanity. Discovering more about life expands our
view of reality and evolves our belief systems.
Besides, and this is what really counts, it's fun!
