Are We the World?

Are We the World?

For the past three weeks to prepare for my research trip to Greece and hone my subtle activism skills, I've been leading group meditations. These gatherings were designed to unite those present, include the energies of Nature's subtle realms, and mix in archetypal and ancestral emanations. Once these forces were brought together, attention was placed on ripening certain seed qualities (we worked with clarity, courage and strength), deepening them and sharing this potent and vital force with the entire planet through the quantum field.

If and how we are all connected through what some call the quantum, dreaming or Akashic field is something I've been thinking a lot about lately. That's partially because of my Master's thesis and also the reason I'm going to Greece. To roll out that pilot study from my thesis to incorporate a larger audience.

It's also why I took a course in "subtle activism" last summer. I think of myself as a shy activist. With a recent exception to participate in the Women's March on Washington in January, I'm not generally someone who takes to the streets even though my convictions are very strong. My contributions have always been more subtle such as energy work at a distance through the quantum dreaming field. And that's what subtle activism is. Joining a group together in a real or virtual sense, creating a strong sense of coherence within the group and connecting with the larger global and even cosmic field.

And while there are theories about how we are connected, how it all might work, there is quite a bit of evidence that the connection is real and measurable. Check out the Global Consciousness Project for some fascinating reading. 

I wanted to test my equipment and the coherence of these group meditations so I took some measurements with my trusty random number generator (RNG) to check it out. Very simplistically, the RNG algorithmically spits out numbers with no discernible pattern which replicate the natural chaos of the quantum field. If something occurs in the area of the RNG which leads to a coherent pattern beyond 2 standard deviations, it is considered to have effected or structured the field in a statistically significant manner.

So what happened in the meditations? Increasing coherence! The graphs below show the pattern of whether or not accumulated deviation demonstrated a structuring effect during any particular meditation. Randomness, the natural state of the field, is shown by the squiggly line. As this line approaches or touches into either the upper or lower parabolic line showing 2 standard deviations from expected measurements, something coherent is happening to the field.

Perhaps we are structuring the field with our intention. Or maybe a resonance is happening between all the quantum energy being generated and information is being transmitted from the meditation space into the field. I believe that there is indeed a cascade effect where individuals make internal shifts and change the field which in turn acts on the individuals within it and changes them. 

The personal is the planetary and even the more, the cosmos lives within us as the ancient story of Indra's Net as translated by Sir Charles Eliot (1935) proposes: 

In the Heaven of Indra, there is said to be a network of pearls, so arranged that if you look at one you see all the others reflected in it. In the same way each object in the world is not merely itself but involves every other object and in fact IS everything else. In every particle of dust, there are present Buddhas without number.  

As Mr. Spock would say: fascinating!

Yogurt Synchronicity

Yogurt Synchronicity

I love synchronicities when they happen. It's one way I know that I'm walking on the path that's "right" for me either regarding a particular project or just in general. A lovely occurrence happened just now. 

One of my local grocery stores is having a sale on Greek yogurt. I don't usually eat yogurt but the display appealed to me so I stopped. A friendly voice said: "I hope I'm not in your way" as I reached to pick up some containers. "Of course not" I said and then took a moment to really see who had spoken. It was my friend "K" who I hadn't seen in a while. As we were catching up she reached in to her purse and gave me a donation for my Greek research trip which is coming up in three weeks. "I was meaning to support your GoFundMe campaign but I haven't had a chance with all the stuff I have going on, so here is something to help you out."

We talked a bit more and some other synchronicities showed up around the raincoat I was wearing and her sister coming to town in April. It was great. A gentle message from the flow of life - the Tao - that I'm on the path I'm meant to be on. Ahhhh! And this after a difficult day with research yesterday and now, a random donation right in front of the Greek yogurt display.

I'm leaving for World Work 2017 the big conference in Greece in about three weeks. It's going to be amazing! Over 500 people, Processworkers from all around the world, getting together to explore global problems of inclusion, marginalization, and issues of national identify and economic inequality. I'll be continuing my quantum field research there and am excited to see what happens!
