Quantum physics really begins to point to this discovery. It says that you can’t have a Universe without mind entering into it, and that the mind is actually shaping the very thing that is being perceived.
To understand that, we have to begin to imagine what a universe would be like if there wasn’t anything in it called Mind. If that was the case, according to quantum physics now, then every possibility would also come into existence as every other possibility.
Learning to see love and to express that love is the purpose of living this life. What’s real has love at its heart; the universe is constructed from love, and that love is very much tied to our power of attention and imagination.
I want to explain the new alchemy [in the “From Earth, Air, Fire, and Water to a New Vision of Mind and Time”], which has to do with understanding what I call the subjective and objective qualities of existence.
Certainly in terms of technology, it’s made a tremendous impact, but medicine is still within the realm of what we might call “objective” science. It’s still part of the objective way of looking at the world.
What is the relationship of the obvious things that we see around us to the things that we believe we understand within ourselves? This is the ancient alchemical formula: “as above, so below, as within, so without.”
Asking yourself deeper questions opens up new ways of being in the world. It brings in a breath of fresh air. It makes life more joyful. The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery.
We need all three senses of time – a sense of the future, a sense of the present, and a sense of the past – at all times to understand or experience what’s happening right now. It’s constantly unfolding that way.
