I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately about healing and the quantum physics connection. A couple of weeks back I attended a talk by ADAM, the famous young dreamhealer from Vancouver. Adam was in New York for one day to give a presentation and a group healing at the Airport Sheraton in Newark. 600 people packed the place and it was a very interesting experience.
What I find unique about ADAM, aside from the fact that he has hundreds of testimonials from people from all over the world, is that he is presenting a solid scientific basis to what he and others are experiencing. The academic theories of quantum physics come to life with his accounts of his direct experience of the interconnectedness we all share. ADAM is also pursuing a Masters degree in molecular biology to add even more credibility to this amazing young man’s story.
Over the last few years I have come across some pretty amazing books and all of them in their own unique way are adding clarity to the mysterious and fascinating world we live in. What inspired me most about Adam’s presentation is his constant reference to the power of intention. It is something we have all heard about in one way or another, from reading “The Secret” or even Napoleon Hill’s classic, “Think and grow rich.” However, I have recently come across Lynne McTaggert’s book, “The Intention Experiment” and am finding it very impressive. If you want to explore the real science behind “The Secret” look no further. This book has it all.
Prior to finding this book, I had read others like “The Holographic Universe” by Michael Talbot, “The Golden Ratio” by Mario Livio, “The Way of Energy” by Master Lam Kam Chuen, and “The Adventure of Self Discovery” by Stanislav Grof. In their own unique way they bring light to understanding the beauty of the world we live in and the nature of mind and spirit and the energy field that connects us all.
|Me as a 20 year old monk.|
During my 20s and 30s, some of you might know that for 14 years I was a celibate monk. It was a time for deep inner healing and reflection. Looking back now I am amazed that at such a young age I was able to have such discipline. I guess it was a continuation of something I started in a past life. In any case, for some reason it felt right at the time and my soul needed it. That experience changed my life forever.
During those “meditative years” I absorbed myself in the ancient teachings of the Vedas. One book in particular, The Srimad Bhagavatam completely changed my world view and set the framework for the rest of my life. If you have never read or even heard about this book, I strongly suggest you take a look. It is a Sanskrit classic and considered to be the “cream” of the Vedas. The Srimad Bhagavatam gives the complete picture of this world and the world beyond. It is considered the post graduate study of the Bhagavad-Gita which I know most people have heard about.
Anyway, since my first adventure into spirituality when I left home to live in the mountains, I have had a passion for understanding why? And every day as I grow wiser, I feel that I am getting more clarity on what this world is all about. Each one of us will go through life experiencing the world in our unique way. No two people will have the same experience and no two people will ever have the same conclusion. Even if only slight, the “flavor” will always be different from one person to the next. And there lies one of the fundamental beauties of this universe. Yes, we are all connected; yes, we all emanate from the same source; yes, we are all ultimately heading in the same direction, but amazingly we are all still absolutely unique individuals.
It is this tapestry of individualism that makes the life experience so amazing. In the same way that each brush stroke of a painting; each color band in a rainbow; each petal of a flower; each star in the firmament; each thread in a gorgeous gown; or each note in a symphony work together to create something magical — each one of us is a participant in the play of life and together, connected by the loving energy that brought us forth, we have the ability to transform, uplift and create something even more wonderful for our own life and the life of others.
We all need love, so give some out today and have faith that it will return back to you multiplied!
My new personal definition statement now is:
I am: A creative, mysterious and eclectic soul with a passion for understanding the life experience, the “field” that connects us all, and the summon bonum that makes it all possible.
