It’s interesting growing up singing certain songs that, when you are a kid, are just plain fun to sing. But do we really give much thought as to what the lyrics of some songs really mean?
“Row, row, row your boat,
gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
life is but a dream.”
Life is but a dream. Really? I mean are we really existing in a great big, dreaming Mind? And is this stream that we’re (supposedly) gently rowing our boats down, a stream of Consciousness?
Quantum physics professor, Robert Lanza, was reported as saying, “the theory of biocentrism teaches that death as we know it is an illusion created by our consciousness.”
So, if death is an illusion, maybe the same refers to this version we call “Life”?
Professor Robert Lanza also said in his book, Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe, “that our consciousness creates the universe, and not the other way around, and once we accept that space and time are ‘tools of our minds’, death can’t exist in ‘any real sense’ either”.
What I’m understanding in professor Lanza’s statement is that since space and time are just tools of our minds then space and time are not real. We use space and time only to manipulate what is truly real. And what is it that’s real? Energy.
Energy is the only constant in the Universe. It is a forever, ongoing force and it will continue to exist even after human beings are long gone.
According to the Webster-Merriam Dictionary; Energy 1c: a usually positive spiritual force. The energy flowing through all people. This definition, however, is half right because we all know that energy can be negative as well. So let’s dig a little deeper.
According to Live Science contributor, Joseph Castro, ‘physicist’s defines Energy as the ability to do work, or the ability to move or elicit change in matter. Energy is also “conserved” – it cannot be created or destroyed. It can, however, be transferred between objects or systems by the interactions of forces’.
Energy can be used, manipulated and shifted. Even our simple awareness of an object collapses it’s molecular structure, giving the observer the potential to restructure the object’s molecules, as suggested by Amit Goswami, former professor of Theoretical Science Institute at the University of Oregon, “ordinary perception consists of the collapse of a possibility wave by consciousness (via recognition and choice) in the presence of awareness. But in unconscious (subliminal) perception, in which consciousness but not awareness is present, there should be no collapse of the wave.”
Energy is the essence of all that exists. Without our focus (energy) being placed on certain ideas, nothing in this world would take form as thoughts, too, are energy. Even this vast universe is manifested and maintained by our collective focus or belief in that it all does actually exist. Life as we know it could very well be just a dream. So, just gently row along and enjoy.
