consciousness

A Quote by on colleague, consciousness, david bohm, einstein, electron, higher planes, holistic view, lifetime, observation, perception, physicist, princeton, quantum physics, and worldview

"What a shift!  In a radically different interpretation of our relationship to the world we live in, Wheeler states that it's impossible for us to simply watch the universe happen around us.  Experiments in quantum physics, in fact, do show that simply looking at something as tiny as an electron--just focusing our awareness upon what it's doing for even an instant of time--changes its properties while we're watching it.  The experiments suggest that the very observation is an act of creation, and that consciousness is doing the creating.  These findings seem to support Wheeler's propostion that we can no longer consider ourselves merely onlookers who have no effect on the world that we're observing.

To think of ourselves as participating in creation rather than simply passing through the universe during a brief period of a lifetime requires a new perception of what the cosmos is and how it works.  The groundwork for such a radical worldview was the basis for a series of books and papers by another Princeton physicist and colleague of Einstein, David Bohm.  Before his death in 1992, Bohm left us two pioneering theories that offer a very different--and in some ways, a nearly holistic--view of the universe and our role in it.

The first was an interpretation of quantum physics that set the stage for Bohm's meeting and subsequent friendship with Einstein.  It was this theory that opened the door to what Bohm called the "creative operation of underlying ... levels of reality."  In other words, he beileved that there are deeper or higher planes of creation that hold the template for what happens in our world.  It's from these subtler levels of reality that our physical world originates."

A Quote by Bill Hicks on consciousness, imagination, weather, and young man

Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.

A Quote by Micheal Teal on reverence, journey, consciousness, love, dreams, and infinite

Have reverence for yourself and you will walk with the angels. Explore inner landscapes and the journey of growing spirit will be one of immense blessings. Ours is a vast ocean of consciousness and if one colours outside the lines they will be embraced by light and love will shine upon them all their days. Be the master of your own life, live your dreams, explore the infinite and yours will be a magnificent voyage.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on truth, convictions, self, philosophy, consciousness, awareness, and self-knowledge

We should know what our convictions are, and stand for them. Upon one's own philosophy, conscious or unconscious, depends one's ultimate interpretation of the facts. Therefore it is wise to be as clear as possible about one's subjective principles. As the man is, so will be his ultimate truth.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)

A Quote by John Kain on consciousness, ettiquette, freedom, gary snyder, images, imagination, memories, and spiritual teacher

Gary Snyder points out, "The world is our consciousness, and it surrounds us.  There are more things in mind, in the imagination, than 'you' can keep track of -- thoughts, memories, images, angers, delights, rise unbidden.  The depths of mind, the unconscious, are our inner wilderness areas."  When we turn to a spiritual teacher we look for a guide, not one who is familiar with well-worn paths, but one who knows, as Snyder puts it, the "ettiquette of freedom."

A Quote by Anodea Judith on attention, consciousness, awakening, and humanity

Human consciousness is now being drawn inexorably toward the same issues, the gaze of collective attention focused like never before.

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on worries, consciousness, stress, letting go, and problems

The field of consciousness is tiny.  It accepts only one problem at a time.

A Quote by Gourasana on reincarnation, incarnation of god, spiritual guidance, enlightenment, break the cycle of birth and death, full awareness, consciousness, and illusion

For one who is truly ready to leave, to give up everything, to do anything to achieve full awareness in this lifetime...always radical means are essential in order to break free from this illusion in this lifetime.

I am Gourasana, and I make a very bold statement when I say I can guide you from this illusion – but I can.
