Stephen Hawking, stated in, " The Universe in a Nutshell" that our history is filled with infinite potentiality and what we "got" was due to disturbing the quantum field by our "observations."
Profound, I thought, and pondered about his theory for months.
To better understand Dr. Hawking's theory, I read everything on quantum physics I could understand and a pile of books on the brain, Bruce Hood's "The Self Illusion" was the most helpful. Below is what I believe correlates with Hawking's theory, It is from the book, The Nature of Personal Reality, by Jane Roberts, (Seth Material) I have included a quote and then how I am seeing life now through a magical lens.
"An examination of your conscious thoughts will tell you much about the state of your inner mind, your intentions and expectations, and will often lead you to a direct confrontation with challenges and problems. Your thoughts, studied , will let you see where you are going. They point clearly to the nature of physical events. What exists physically existed first in thought and feeling. There is no other rule.
What if our "observations" were first feeling-tone shared by all consciousness focused in physical reality. The cells and organs have their own awarenesses, and a gestalt one. So the race of man also has individual consciousness and a gestalt or mass consciousness of which makes up our physical reality. While physical we follow physical laws, or assumptions. These form the framework for corporeal expression.
Within this framework you have full freedom to create your experience, your personal life in all of its aspects; the living picture of the world, your personal life, and to some extent your individual living experience, helped create the world as it is known in your time.
It is important before we continue that you realize that consciousness is within all physical phenomena, however. It is vital that you realize your position within nature. Nature is created from within. The personal life that you know rises up from within you, yet is given. period. Since you are part of Being, then in a certain fashion you give yourself the life that is being lived through you." ~ Jane Roberts, Seth Material.
"Although I cannot move and I have to speak through a computer, in my mind I am free."
When I fully realized my entire reality was created by me, and global consciousness, I could chose what to give my attention to for the change I wanted to see. The more you examine your thoughts and feelings the more excited you'll get when what you were thinking about appears. You'll notice "integrity" plays a role as well, (even when no one but you knows what good things you've done), because it's "liking yourself" that is most important in your ability to thrive without limitations. It only works if you truly believe.
Just like Yoda said, "there is no try, only do."
Whatever you hold in your consciousness you put in your reality. If you are thinking about something, it will appear in a similar form. Don't get scared when you notice you have a lot of negative thoughts, about yourself and the world. These types of "thoughts" are your current vibration, giving you the reality you have now. Any change towards better inner-feelings about yourself and your surroundings will show up immediately in a in an event confirming your power to create your reality. I am now excited about cleaning up my thoughts -especially my deep inner feelings that were not as great as I wanted them to be.
Below are examples of limiting beliefs you may want to remove.
Example of limiting thoughts:
1. My behavior is hidden in my subconsciousness.
2. My life is a result of my childhood, or Karma,
3. Old age causes illness and regression.
4. People are out to screw me. Or People don't like me.
5. I am not smart enough, good enough, someone is better than me.
6. My religion is the right one, and so are my beliefs.
7. I have no control over the events in my life.
8. I am fat.
9. There is something wrong with money. People who have it are greedy, less spiritual than those who are poor. They are unhappier, and snobs.
These are all beliefs held by many people. Those who have them will meet them in experience. Physical data will always seem to reinforce the beliefs, therefore, but the beliefs formed the reality.
"The ego, which is ever changing based on a flow of new experiences looks out upon physical reality and surveys it in relation to those characteristics of which it is composed at any given time. It makes its judgments according to its own idea of itself." ~Jane Roberts
I try to catch myself in conversation making jokes about myself, and stop it. )
When science has proven "consciousness creates everything in our reality" our focus will turn to beautiful stories, ideas and breathtaking environments. We will spot giving our attention to garbage news stories filled with violence and fear; because we don't believe what we hold these emotions in our consciousness mind.
If I could ask Dr. Hawking one question it would be this:
You said that we collapse waves when we observe an event. But what if-- our expectation collapsed the wave, our belief before the form existed. If this is true, consciousness is creating the collapsing of the field based on our inner-emotions, which would make the unpopular words, like "emotions, feelings and insights" the most valuable of all our senses.
I learned most of my beliefs were secondhand and limiting, so I jumped those fences!
I documented my journey in my memoir,
"From Hollywood to God," by Kelly Granite Enck
I am leaving the link for those, like me, who love to explore the Inner Journey of the Mind!
Thanks Stephen for all your years of passion! Love Kelly!
One of the most influential thinkers of our time, Stephen Hawking is an intellectual icon, known not only for the adventurousness of his ideas, but for the clarity and wit with which he expresses them. In this new work, Hawking brings us to the cutting edge of theoretical physics, where truth is often stranger than fiction, to explain in layman’s terms the principles that control our universe.
Like many in the community of theoretical physics, Professor Hawking is seeking to uncover the grail of science – the elusive Theory of Everything that lies at the heart of the cosmos. In his accessable and often playful style, he guides us on his search to uncover the secrets of the universe – from supergravity to supersymmetry, from quantum theory to M-theory, from holography to duality. And he lets us behind the scenes of one of his most exciting intellectual adventures as he seeks “to combine Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity and Richard Feynman’s idea of multiple histories into one complete unified theory that will describe everything that happens in the universe.”
With characteristic exuberance, Professor Hawking invites us to be fellow travelers on this extraordinary voyage through spacetime. The Universe in a Nutshell is essential listening for all of us who want to understand the universe in which we live.
