|A series of
breathtaking discoveries has given us a powerful new way to think of
our role in the universe. Rather than the conventional view that
suggests we are passive observers, living a brief moment of time in a
creation that already exists, the discoveries suggest that it is
actually consciousness itself that is responsible for the existence of
the universe! Perhaps the most revolutionary discovery supporting this
idea is the scientific fact that when we look at the stuff our world is
made of-tiny quantum particles such as electrons-the very act of us
watching that electron changes the way it behaves in our presence.
What's more, the longer we look, the more it changes!
In 1998, scientists at Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science documented this phenomenon showing that "the greater the amount of 'watching,' the greater the observer's influence on what actually takes place." Citing such experiments, Princeton University physicist John Wheeler suggests that we not only play a role in the creation of our everyday world, but we play the prime role in what he calls a "participatory universe." Wheeler states that we can no longer think of ourselves merely as onlookers who have no effect on the world around us, because it is impossible to simply watch. If we are alive and conscious, then we are affecting our world.
The key to Wheeler's proposition is the word "participatory." In a participatory universe, you and I are part of the equation. We are both creating the events of our lives, as well as the experiencers of what we create. In other words, we are like artists expressing our deepest passions, fears, dreams, and desires through the living essence of a mysterious quantum canvas. The difference between us and conventional artists, however, is that we are the canvas, as well as the images upon the canvas. And just as artists refine an image until it is just right in their minds, we may think of ourselves as perpetual artists, building a creation that is ever changing and never ending. Through our artist's palette of beliefs, judgments, emotions, and prayers, we find ourselves in relationships, jobs, and situations of support and betrayal that play out with different people in different places. What a beautiful, bizarre, and powerful concept!
From the perspective of us participating in an ever-changing universe, the solution to any condition is a change in attitude and belief. And this is the great secret of propelling our heart's desires from the possibility of imagination, to the reality of our everyday lives. The key is our ability to feel as if our dreams have already come to life, our prayers already answered, and live from that feeling. There is a subtle, and yet powerful difference between working toward a result, and feeling from that result. When we work toward something, we embark upon an open-ended and never-ending journey. While we may identify milestones, and set goals to get us closer to our accomplishment, in our mind we are always "on our way" to the goal, rather than in the experience of accomplishing our goal. This is precisely why Neville's invitation to "enter the image" of our heart's desire and "think from it" is so powerful in our lives.
This is the great secret that has been protected and preserved for us in the wisdom of our past. From the monasteries of Egypt and Tibet to the forgotten texts of our most cherished traditions we are reminded that we are part of, rather than separate from, the world around us. As part of everything we see, we have the power to participate-not control or manipulate, but consciously chart the course of our lives and our world. Please don't be deceived by the simplicity of contemporary philosopher Neville Goddard's words when he suggests that all we need to do is to "assume the feeling of our wish fulfilled." In a participatory universe of our own making, why would we expect that peace, healing, and a long and healthy life should be any more difficult?
