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 ~ and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite: Allen L Roland
Lincoln Barnett once wrote ~ " The great philosophical triumph of any Unified field is implicit in the first word of its title. It will carry to logical fulfillment the long course of science towards the unification of man's concepts of the physical world. For from its august perspective, the entire universe would appear as one elemental field in which each atom, each flying electron, each star, each wandering comet and slow-wheeling galaxy is seen to be but a ripple or tumescence in the underlying space-time unity. And so a profound simplicity would supplant the surface complexity of nature. Thus all man's perceptions of the world and all his abstract intuitions of reality would merge finally into one, and the deep underlying unity of the universe would be laid bare."
Let me once again state that the deep underlying unity of the universe is a psychic energy field of universal love and soul consciousness ( the Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears ~ and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.
As such, the universe does appear, to me, as one elemental field of love wherein each atom, each star and each slow-wheeling galaxy is but a ripple or tumescence in the underlying space-time unity.
With the acceptance of this unified field of love, a profound simplicity would indeed supplant the surface complexity of nature and a profound responsibility would be asked of each one of us ~ LOVE ONE ANOTHER !
Love in all its subtleties is nothing more, and nothing less, than the more or less direct trace marked on the heart of the element by the psychical convergence of the universe upon itself. This, if I am not mistaken, is the ray of light which will help us see more clearly around us: Teilhard de Chardin
Yes, it really is this simple, and it is also Teilhard's ray of light. Einstein would surely be delighted with this truth for he is said to have mistrusted complicated theories and to have felt that the simplest explanation of any physical phenomenon was sure to be the right one. As Joseph Bronowski wrote in The Ascent Of Man: " Einstein was a man who could ask immensely simple questions. And what his life showed, and his work, is that when the answers are simple too, then you hear God thinking."
One of the simple truths that Einstein observed is that whether you are dealing with time, space, matter or energy ~ the speed of light is inextricably involved.
However, it is my observed truth ( through the eyes of love ) that whether you are dealing with time, space, matter or energy ~ the speed of light is actually a condition of state within a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness.
Can it really be this simple ?
That deepest within us is a field of universal love and soul consciousness that we ignore at our peril.
That the universe is constantly saying yes to us and we persistently say no.
That the universe asks only that we find and express our own unique gift within a universal loving plan.
That the universe incessantly demands that we fully open our hearts and become one with that universal loving plan.
That we are continually being called from within to the path of the heart but few listen and fewer still respond.
That we are, in essence, afraid of the love and joy that is deepest within each one of us.
That saying yes to myself is giving full expression of my deepest feelings regardless of the risk .
That fully opening my heart in relationship is the shortest path to soul consciousness ~ and it is the ultimate yes to myself.
That the ultimate aim of love is to become a fragment of life's heart and in so doing ~ become one with the Unified Field and a state of soul consciousness.
Can it really be this simple ?
This Unified field would also seem to fit within Einstein's grand aim of science which, he said, is " to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms "
Let me share an axiom, from Teilhard de Chardin, which would fit within Einstein's grand aim of science and which serves as the foundation of my Unified Field.
Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest within themselves.
As I have stressed throughout my life, the path of transformation is not easy ~ there are no shortcuts to soul consciousness. Furthermore, this path is not through the mind but through the heart. Teilhard called this difficult process of transcending the ego the crisis of Conversion and it is never painless ~ for it is the path through our deepest fears.
And I prove this every week in my work with Veterans with PTSD where by jump starting their hearts ~ they begin to truly heal themselves. Once their hearts are touched ~ the fears and fears that keep them from loving or being loved are pushed to the surface of their consciousness and can be dealt with. http://allenlrolandsweblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/band-of-brothers-2.html
How comforting it becomes when we realize that deepest within us, beneath the pain and fear, is joy, intention and purpose as well as our original loving state of soul consciousness ~ the Unified Field of love.
It really is this simple!
When the heart achieves its desire, you shall transcend time and space.
These words by Mahfouz, the great Egyptian poet who won the Nobel Prize for poetry, state a profound truth that I have been aiming to demonstrate ~ for the heart's desire is to love so deeply that we become a fragment of life's heart as well as one with the Unified Field.
I knew this at four years old when, filled with love and joy, I leaned out that window in Newtonville, Massachusetts and realized I was not alone. I felt and saw my oneness with all for I had, indeed, transcended time and space and was in a blissful state of soul consciousness.
My heart's desire has always been to feel and love that deeply again, to feel once more my oneness with all, to see through those same eyes that had transcended time and space ~ and to share the truth of what I see from a place of gratitude and service, as I am now sharing with you.
Only by fully surrendering to love did I find this holy grail ~ as you will to. In the end, this is our common journey ~ to reunite with a state of soul consciousness that we all once knew as children ~ a state of consciousness that binds the universe with its universal urge to unite ~ a state of consciousness that lies beyond ego consciousness ~ a state of consciousness that lies beyond death ~ a state of consciousness that can truly be experienced only by surrendering to love.
Can it really be this simple ?
Yes, it is ! And, as Teihard predicted, this is the truth that shall set everything ablaze.
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.
