In a society in which dark forces seem to be gathering strength, it’s understandable that we look on in despair wondering what anyone could do to halt humanity’s apparent headlong dash to destruction. How can little old me do anything to stop wars, terrorism, hatred, injustice, fear? The answer is: a lot — by tuning into the Infinite Mind and selecting, as quantum physicists would say, a different probability.
Let me explain. The power of human consciousness is truly awesome. For instance, Western medics on a visit to Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Clinic & Training Center, a “medicine-less” hospital in Beijing, watched in amazement as, within minutes, a malignant tumor dissolved before their eyes.
The local doctors explained that they didn’t judge the cancer good or bad — it was just a “quantum possibility,” of which there were many, and a cancerous growth was just one of them. They used their minds to access the realm in which all probabilities exist simultaneously and made a different choice. And we can make such a choice to change our own circumstances, or change the world.
The eminent American theoretical physicist John Archibald Wheeler, who coined the terms “black hole” and “wormhole,” gave us a clue about the power of our minds when he explained his Anthropic Principle to an audience of boffins. He told them, “The Big Bang happened because I thought of it, and I thought of it because the Big Bang happened.” He was explaining that as quantum theory says, the observer creates reality, then we, as observers, have helped to bring the universe into being. And we are all part of an ongoing, cosmic “work in progress.”
All things past, present and future are everywhere — in us, through us and around us, existing in different dimensions. We are interconnected with everything — to the end of eternity. Our every thought reverberates around the cosmos, affecting it forever. Everything from the most distant star to our own bodies and minds are made of discrete packets of energy with their own, unique frequencies, harmonizing in one, eternal celestial symphony. Every molecule of our beings is playing notes heard across the heavens.
I believe we are not the playthings of Destiny but, in fact, the Infinite Mind has selected each one of us to play a specific role — whether it is to say a kind word to a stranger or be the father of E=MC2.
Back to the towering figure of John Wheeler, who died in 2008 at age 96. A friend and colleague of luminaries like Albert Einstein and quantum physicist Neil Bohr, Wheeler firmly believed the Universe is triggered by our consciousness. He was no nutty professor; he was greatly respected in the world of science, a large section of which now shares his belief that human consciousness is a key participant in the unfolding reality of all existence.
In a radio interview on “The Anthropic Universe” Wheeler said, “We are participators in bringing into being not only the near and here, but the far away and long ago. We are in this sense, participators in bringing about something of the Universe in the distant past, and if we have one explanation for what’s happening in the distant past, why should we need more?”
In my book In Tune With The Infinite Mind, I take Wheeler’s theory one step further. I believe the Cosmic Consciousness has actively brought into being each one of us in order to work with our minds to facilitate the continuing act of creation. Each human mind is unique and has been designed to work as a co-creator with Universal Consciousness.
So nothing happens without our input. This reality is demonstrated to us by 21st century science. Quantum physicists talk of the “collapse of the wave function” when the human mind causes the waves of infinite probability that exist throughout the cosmos to coalesce into the shape and form already in the Creator’s mind. Without human consciousness, creation ceases.
If you decide to take up the challenge of harnessing your mind to that of the Infinite Mind, you could precipitate a consciousness explosion and nudge the world towards its next evolutionary step — and a better place.
