Beyond space-time

“When we view ourselves in space and time, our consciousnesses are obviously the separate individuals of a particle-picture, but when we pass beyond space and time, they may perhaps form ingredients of a single continuous stream of life. As it is with light and electricity, so it may be with life; the phenomena may be individuals carrying on separate existences in space and time, while in the deeper reality beyond space and time we may be all members of one body.” —Sir James Jeans, Astrophysicist


Not Your Children

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
Kahlil Gibran


Jorge Luis Borges

“Named humans are, clearly, a series of inventions gleaned from willful impressions in world made of unlimited, unstinting, chaotic time, which is unfolding in a dreamlike labyrinth, but which does not exist outside the present moment.”Jorge Luis Borges, The Labyrinth of Babel 

David Bohm

"Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe. What we believe is based upon our perceptions. What we perceive depends on what we look for. What we look for depends on what we think. What we think depends on what we perceive. What we perceive determines what we believe. What we believe determines what we take to be true. What we take to be true is our reality." - by David Bohm, physicist

Tung Shan

”If you look for the truth outside yourself,  it gets farther and farther away.  
Today, walking alone,  I meet him everywhere I step. He is the same as me, 
yet I am not him. Only if you understand it in this way 
will you merge with the way things are.” 

Tung Shan 


boundless reach and influence

“Today there are six stabilized ... protocols used in laboratories around the world exploring these ... phenomena. Under rigorous double or triple blind, randomized and tightly controlled conditions, each of these six has independently produced [odds against chance] of ... one in a billion...or even one in a trillion!”   
Stephan A. Schwartz 
The emerging scientifically validated view of mind is that it cannot be put in a box (or brain) and walled off from all other minds. If minds are boundless and boundariless, as evidence suggests, in some sense all minds connect.
