Standing on the Shoulders of Our Ancestors
When we arrive at the age of 40 we are meant to be at a point in our lives where we are required to make connections with our fellow man. For some of this it is a few small steps if any, and for others it is a huge leap. I suppose I am somewhere in between, but feel lucky that it is a natural progression with the right amount of work required to make it real. I was told a nice quote today “We stand on the shoulders of our ancestors”. I truly believe this, and it is up to the individual just how tall, how high, and how far they will reach. All the lessons to be learned are right there in front of us, they are innate and visible. Having children are meant to be the gateway to transformation, it is true, we learn more from our children than they will learn from us.
Spirituality – Much like 5 Founding Fathers I am Not Talking Religion
George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and Thomas Paine would likely never be elected into government in today’s US environment which is stiring up religious zealots, polarizing people into beliefs that look outside themselves for answers. Many people do not realize that the church and state were even further separated in the context and times of the founding fathers.
I am not going to go into detail here, as Rob Boston, the policy analyst at Americans United for Separation of Church and State says it so much better:
Spirituality has Brought me Independently Closer to God
Much like the founding fathers my spirituality is a private matter that looks inward for the answers. While I look inward I trust my instincts, and listen to the answers that my subconscious mind presents to me, the answers are there and god is within me. God is within everyone. I know my independent findings are far from original, they are not intended to be righteous or self-serving. They are meant to point out to me, that I am just an independent perspective on a vast fabric of experiences. I am truly one in billions.
3 Books that Have Increased Spirituality within my Scientific Mind:
The God Theory, The: Universes, Zero-Point Fields, and What’s Behind It All
My Comments: “While reading God Theory on the zero-point fields I am simultaneously reading The Quantum Enigma. Both push the boundaries of physics into the realm of consciousness while exploring the limits of our observational resolutions and perceptions.
The books found me as I let me consciousness dwell upon our place within the fractal universe and the limits of my own mind. While my conscious self explores my sub-consciousness expands, and it needs to, this is where most personal limitations dwell.
I’ll let you know where these readings take me…” (Aparently they took me to my next entry 😉
Quantum Enigma: Physics Encounters Consciousness
My Comments: “It is apparent that all we are and all we know occur through observation. Observation can either be empirical, inferred, and in some cases interpretive, in fact many of these are only interpretive (subject to the human experience and mental exercises). While measured data is concrete there are philosophical meanings even behind the hardest most repeatable numbers. It’s analogous to measuring your weight, your blood pressure, the speed of light and then asking if any of this adds into an equation that provides some insight into the meaning of life.
Physics requires observation, and the very act of observing draws upon consciousness. In quantum mechanics, the act of observing determines outcome, even existence. And it is just that, existence is within a framework of our observation via the 5 senses, and the 6th sense of intuition, though you may have a different name for the extension of self into the universe 😉
Many Lives, Many Masters
My Comments: “At the age where spiritual awakening starts to present itself to me, 39 found me predicated with books on physics and consciousness. The path has lead me to books such as this that are focused on the human psyche. There have been a number of events that led to a friend lending me this book, including the thoughts of children, who often tell me about previous lives, and what they want to come back as in the next life. My 40’s will see a deeper and well developed spiritual self, compared to where I am now. i am enjoying this journey, and this book has helped in lighting the path.”
