The TRUTH that Shall Set Everything Ablaze
As 2004 draws to a close ~ Science, Religion and Psychology are nearing the peak of man's ceaseless quest for the ultimate truth .
It is Teilhard de Chardin , the Jesuit priest, paleontologist and explorer of the soul, whose life's work was the reinterpretation of Christianity in the light of evolution, who stands impatiently , like a beacon of light, at the summit of man's quest for the ultimate truth ~ proclaiming to all that God is love.
To Teilhard, not only is love the most universal, the most powerful and the most mysterious of the cosmic forces but it is also the primal and universal psychic energy.
To Teilhard, Jesus was a forerunner for a state of loving consciousness that we will all eventually surrender to.
I have been able to prove the truth of Teilhard's proclamation, in my work as a psychotherapist and also on my own personal journey of the heart ~ that this same primal and universal psychic energy of love and soul consciousness is not only deepest within all of us but it is also the long sought for UNIFIED FIELD ~ the one constant field of energy within which gravitational and electromagnetic fields as well as the strong and weak force in the atom as well as all other forces of nature, including time and space, are merely conditions of state.
I have summed up this basic universal truth in the following axiom ;
The basic underlying and uniting force of the universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness ( The Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but ALSO beneath our deepest fears.
My contribution to the unveiling of this truth is proving how psychic pain ( the seeming separation from Love ) is the most devastating pain we humans can experience and is capable of triggering processes in the hypothalamus which result in a left brain imbalance and dominance as well as the denial, mistrust and forgetting of our connection to the Unified Field and the joy and love that is a state of soul consciousness deepest within us.
The psychic pain of being seemingly separated from love is so great that emotionally we stop growing and our lives become a quest to recreate that pain in a subconscious attempt to reunite with our original state of wholeness and joy.
As such, all of our love relationships are steps on this quest until we finally embrace the grand prize ~ our authentic self and our part in a universal loving plan.
It was Teilhard who wrote in his last unpublished work, LE CHRISTIQUE ( The promised land ) of the inevitable consequences when this truth appears ; " sooner or later there will be a chain reaction ~ for the truth has to appear only once, in one single mind, for it to be impossible for anything ever to prevent it from spreading universally and setting everything ablaze. "
We are rapidly reaching the point where psychology, science and religion are all becoming aware of this great truth.
Let me use the findings of the recent Nobel Prize winning researchers , Politzer, Gross and Wilczek, to prove my point. They won the 2004 Nobel prize in physics for their studies of the " strong Force " ~ the powerful and mysterious energy that holds the nuclei of atoms together .
They explained the mystifying qualities of the strong force, which holds together the fundamental building blocks of nature, called QUARKS, to form protons and neutrons ~ two of the basic components of atoms.
Now, this is when it gets interesting .
Independently, they developed the theory and the mathematical equations to show that Quarks are held together by the strong force which, unlike any other force in the universe, gets stronger as the quarks get farther apart ~ a concept now known as " Asymptotic Freedom " .
The simplest analogy is to a rubber band encircling two objects. When the objects are close together, the rubber band fits loosely. But as they are drawn apart, the rubber band stretches, trying to pull them back together .
Now, here is my take on these findings as applied to my Unified Field of Love and Soul Consciousness.
The strong force in the atom is the urge to unite which is the principle property of my Unified Field.
It is the same urge to unite that Einstein found when he discovered that photons ( light particles ) have a tendency to travel together versus act randomly ~ which eventually led to the discovery of the laser.
It is also the same urge to unite that Teilhard de Chardin speaks of when he wrote ~ If there were no real propensity to unite , even at a prodigiously rudimentary level, indeed, in the molecule itself ~ it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up in the ' hominized ' or human form .
It is also the same urge to unite that loved ones feel when they are separated from each other ~ and the further apart the stronger the pull to be back together.
Since I'm a twin, I can really relate to this urge to unite when I was sometimes separated from my twin in early childhood.
This would also seemingly explain how the urge to unite would increase as the Universe continues to expand.
As such, it is a force that is stronger than Gravity !
Thus, the one constant of the universe would no longer be light at 186,000 miles per second for even light particles ( photons ) are subject to this force field of love ~ this driving urge to unite which exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears.
And this would also explain why mankind is in the process of uniting while we seemingly are dividing and pulling away from each other.
And finally, on an individual level , it would explain the power of love, altruism and social cooperation and how we can no longer resist its innate pull and urge to unite versus separate.
Then we have Mike Purton, writing in the Guardian, (http://www.guardian.co.uk/life/science/story/0,12996,1366352,00.html ) on 12/02/04, of the greatest religious discovery of the 20th century; " Physicists call it entanglement, and it describes the state of two or more particles once they have interacted with one another. From then on, irrespective of time and space, a correlation will always exist between them. What happens to one will affect the other - even if they are now at opposite ends of the universe ...For if matter emerged from energy in the singularity of the big bang, it would seem to follow that all the particles of which it consists are in that state of correlation. They have not become entangled, but at the fundamental level they have never been - and can never be - separated. "
In summary ~ the great dawning and, I would add, inevitable realization of psychology, science and religion is that our separateness is an illusion measured by the state of our consciousness and that our ultimate reality, once again measured by the state of our consciousness, is the realization that we are all united and part of a loving and indivisible whole.
And that is the truth that shall set everything ablaze !HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
