Ultimate reality

I watched a recording of the science programme “Horizon” recently. It was about black holes,  and the problems that they cause science as the normal laws of physics seem not to apply at the singularity at the very heart of them. The last quarter of the broadcast, though, was to me the most interesting. It concerned the fundamental nature, the ultimate reality of the rest of the universe and the laws which drive the behaviour of every particle. That is quantum mechanics. At the atomic and sub atomic level nothing is certain. Every thing is perpetually in motion. Nothing is fixed. As we are quantum beings this applies to us. (more…)

Final thoughts on who and what, as human beings, we may be

Previously I asked  the first questions that triggered my quest to understand the true nature of our reality. That is who are we and what are we doing here?

As you can see as per my last few posts,( check out Who and what we are actually, and How do we know we actually exist? Both in Aspects of reality category.) an understanding of the physics of our existence, and the concept of human consciousness opens up more possible answers to those questions than can easily be addressed or understood.

As per my initial glitter ball analogy, all we can see are the reflections back into our reality and the clues we can pick up from them. (more…)

How do we know we actually exist?

Do we actually exist?
This is a tricky one, sorry to be quite so heavy, but understanding this is the key to understanding a lot more about our reality and how it functions.
Last time I asked, as energy beings living in an energy matrix, how we knew we were” real” at all. Scary thought but one we should address .This has been debated by philosophers and scientists for thousands of years. The answer is of course, that we only know we exist because we think and are aware. “I think therefore I am”
Interesting enough, we cannot know anyone else exists at all. Interactions with anyone else could be a trick of our brains. All our senses , touch hearing etc, which are the way we make sense of what is around us , are all functions of our brain. Thought comes instantaneously before physical sensation or action. It could be misleading us.
One of the main keys in trying to understand the truth about who and what we are is human consciousness. It is the joker in the pack. Very difficult to pin down but we individually know we have it .It is what makes us us and our vehicle for making sense of the world around us.
The great debate is whether it is one system or two. Whether it is just a function of our physical brains or something else coming in from outside as an add on. If it is the latter, and there is overwhelming anecdotal evidence that that is the case, then it opens up vast possibilities for the big picture of who we actually are and our place in the universe. If our consciousness is separate and separable from our physical body, and can be shown to go on after our physical death, then then the big picture possibilities, who we actually are, and what we are doing here get a whole lot more interesting.
.I always think of life as an interactive video game, after all we are at base energy beings living in an energy matrix, only our consciousness makes us who we are. Life comes down to what game you are playing and what your mission is. Our instincts and hints given by the universe and the deep understanding given by our consciousness’s are the best reflections/insights we have. Unfortunately, at the moment the instruction manuals are beyond our reach!

Who and what are we actually?

What and who are we actually?

We think we know who and what we are.When we look about us, at our fellow humans and the world and universe around us, we see seemingly solid entities, rocks, seas and stones stars and planets. Reality, we think, looks substantial and fixed. This is actually an illusion. (more…)

How did You Know?

Thought for the day 2

How did you know?

As per my glitter ball analogy of yesterday, I have another question to ask. The reflections, aspects or clues, whatever you like to call them, that reflect back into our reality, what were they for you? What did you see or understand which led you to realise that the physical reality in which we live I not, and cannot be the whole story?

For me it was a gradual realisation through childhood and adult hood. Although to be honest, even from a small child things did not feel right to me. I could see glitches and anomalies, enough to make me question things anyway. This triggered a life long fascination about how our reality actually works.

  • My first husband and I understood that we had met before in a previous incarnation. That was before such things were generally discussed or known about.
  • My mother could accurately see the future..did this mean that the future had already happened? It scared her.
  • The past life memories that began to bleed through that actually explained irrational fears that I held in this life.
  • The” boo” straight into my ear one night when no one was there.
  • The dark shape that wandered across my sitting room floor then disappeared. I may have thought that I was imagining it, but I saw a shocked expression on my companions face as he had seen it too.
  • The orbs that we saw and heard in a haunted hotel in Wales.
  • The time slip that occurred when driving along a country road late at night. A segment of a  radio programme repeated itself completely.

These are just a few examples, I am sure you have more…please share if you feel able.

Thought for the day

 I was asked to do a thought for the day sequence for a Facebook group ( Nothing fancy spiritual) and I thought I would share it here as it gets to the heart of what I am trying to achieve with my web blog.

Thought for the day,

In all my research for my books on the nature of reality, I started with two burning questions. Who are we, and what are we really doing here? Simple questions but actually almost unanswerable. (more…)

The reality of seeing the future

It has always intrigued me how some people can accurately predict the future, using instinct or tools such as cards or runes. As a big picture reality thinker my question is -What does that say about the mechanisms of the big picture of our reality?

My initial thoughts when I first looked at this problem were, does this mean that the future has already happened? Time, you see is a strange concept. Although we live our lives as if it is linear, we could do it no other way, scientists are always debating whether in fact everything happens at once. Simultaneous rather than linear.

As I understand it now, the truth is even more strange than that. We are of course at base energy beings living in an energy matrix. The atoms that we are made of are nothing more than pinches of energy themselves. The laws that govern their behavior, quantum mechanics, would indicate that all possibilities exist at once. All possible futures exist at once.

The thinking is that, through the Laws of attraction we attract what we want in our lives, consciously or sub consciously. By chance (???) I happened to look at the preamble to Doreen Virtue’s oracle cards.

In explaining how they work she said:

“Every card that you draw out of the deck comes to you for a reason.With the help of your angels and through the spiritual Law of Attraction, you automatically pick cards that mirror your current thoughts and emotions. AND SINCE YOUR FUTURE STEMS FROM WHAT YOU THINK AND DO, THESE CARDS ACCURATELY PREDICT YOUR FUTURE.”

The hint tied up in this statement is that we generate our own future as we go along, choosing from all the possibilities. Is this realistic? Funnily enough, some science may say it is.

Well, I personally have likened our reality, at one level, to an interactive video game.  It may be a strong possibility. It is by looking at these anomalies that we do get clues to the real nature of our reality.

So, some people can predict the future, if we understood the mechanisms properly we would understand more about the true nature itself.

More research needed!

A mission statement and a difficult question

On my last post I was talking about my mission. We all have a mission in life whether we are aware of it or not. Sometimes it is a small one, even just nudging someone else in the right direction with a word can be vital. Sometimes we have work to do in influencing society, putting rights wrong, innovating to help society or bringing up children to make the difference. Not to mention working through karma. To become aware of your life’s purpose can be a double edged sword. A pressure or responsibility, that is even if you get what you should be doing right! There are clues and nudges from the universe if you notice them of course, but living ordinary life itself can be difficult enough sometimes.

Anyway, I believe my mission to be in showing, as far as a limited human being can, how the big picture of reality works. I look at all aspects of reality and how they seem to interact to make us us and our reality what it seems to be. I am a generalist rather than a specialist, and I do not pretend to know the answers. I just understand some of the questions! If I just can to show those who are interested where to look for their own answers, I am happy. It is particularly pleasing when people build on my work and run with it.  Am I on the right track? Well I cannot be sure, but all I know is whenever I try to stop I do get a hard nudge from the universe.

The difficult question

Notwithstanding all the above,  a difficult question has to be asked. That is-should I/ we be doing this at all? If we are born with a blank slate for a reason, if we incarnate to experience life in the raw and learn lessons, would knowing the big picture compromise that? What do you think?

The reality of pre planning our lives

Was talking to Toby about meeting people throughout your life that you know instinctively that you have encountered in another incarnation. They are people that you feel an instant connection with, and recognition of, although you have never met before. The theory of it is that you tend to incarnate with the same souls. Often playing different roles in each other’s lives. I started to list them, and realised that some of them had been pivotal in my life, pushing me in the right direction, or leading on to further contacts that did. Some I have enabled to fulfil their mission and now I am being enabled to fulfil mine.

 

Anyway, what struck me was the amount of preplanning that had obviously gone in to my life from another dimension. That it was not all chance. Sometimes we forget that we have chosen our lives. We have chosen situations, good or bad, to experience. We also have Karma to work out, over several lifetimes sometimes. In practice is it so easy to lose sight of the big picture of why we are here and get enmeshed in the difficulties of actually living.

 

So, look up to the big picture when the nitty gritty gets to you. It was all in general terms planned, even though we are born with a blank slate and cannot remember. Notice the nudges and enjoy yourselves around the margins, and soldier on. It will all become clear in the end.

 

Personal super clues

 

When I began to think back to when I realised that the reality that we are taught exists was not the whole story, I came up with a list of personal clues that I had noticed, consciously or sub consciously. I always say that I never see anything, but that turned out not to be really true. The brain often twists what we do see to fit its perceived patterns of what we should see. Anyway the clues were there, and the first one was what started me on a lifetime of questioning and thinking.

Marian’s list

  1. 50 years ish ago I met my first husband. We both felt strongly that we had met before in a previous life. We had been brother and sister. Nothing unusual about that now ( in certain circles), but at the time it was not a concept that had ever been discussed. We just accepted it as a fact without really questioning, at the time, what it meant.
  2. My mother could accurately see the future. What started as a party trick frightened her so much she shut it down. Did this mean that the future was preplanned, or had it already happened? Why can some people access this information. Food for thought anyway.
  3. Past life memories started coming up. Having a reiki treatment I felt a heavy beam on my chest and could not breathe. I had been trapped under a boat in a cold northern sea and drowned. This explained why sailing freaked me out. I was not afraid of falling in the water, but in being trapped under an upturned boat. Our irrational fears or unexpected skills are often clues to past lives.
  4. I was on my own in my flat when something very loudly but distinctly said boo in my ear. I am just about to look into fairies and other spirits!
  5. Just writing about ghosts and the g randomly got stuck. Gggggggggggggg. It had never happened before or since. Was someone trying to tell me something?
  6. Between sleeping and waking one day I looked up and saw a circle of lights chasing around what looked like a porthole in a space ship. In the porthole I could see stars. I felt it was a glimpse of a future life, spent travelling the universe.
  7. When I was very upset, green balls of light appeared in front of me. I now know them to be healing orbs. I had no idea then such things existed. Similarly the orange light which sometimes comes to me that I now know to be a protective force.
  8. Toby and I were travelling in the car one day when a whole segment of radio repeated itself. We assumed it was an error although it was supposed to be a live programme and there was no acknowledgement that it had happened. Could it have been timeslip?                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The conscious mind does tend to rationalise and dismiss these things. Indeed society trains it to do so!    Some of the clues seem relatively insignificant, but taken in total they point to reality which is more complex than we can easily imagine.Please share your lists. I seem to be being interfered with even as I write this….
