The Quantum Field and God.
Recently I was asked the very simple innocent question of how does the Quantum field and God relate? I had been teaching a group of ministerial students about the Silence of Meditation and had mentioned that the Silence is the Quantum field, which is God or Spirit or Creation. And there, right at the end of class arises this question.
So here it goes… First why does it matter? I don’t think it matters what we call the secret place of the most high, whether it is God, Source, Creation, Quantum Field, Silence, The Universe or any other name you might use. For me, although each description might be an aspect or facet of the Whole, it is the space in which all things are possible, the space in which all things are yet unformed. It is here that, when we access it, that our minds quiet, our hearts open and our Souls soar.
This space, which I’m calling loosely the Field, for lack of a better term, is accessed through the quiet mind and open heart and it causes the same thing.
Charles Fillmore, co-founder of the Unity Movement, spent many hours, days and years “going to Headquarters.” My friend, Rosemary Fillmore Rhea, granddaughter of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore used to tell the story of bringing friends home from school and her grandfather sitting straight up right in a chair in the living room, looking like he was asleep. Her friends would say, :what’s wrong with him?” She replied, “He’s going to headquarters.” It was a normal part of their daily life. It is said that Charles spent hours every day in the silence.
Charles describes the Silence, in the Revealing Word as: A state of consciousness entered into for the purpose of putting man in touch with Divine Mind so that the soul may listen to the “still small voice” (I Kings 19:12). When one goes into the silence he enters the “secret place of the Most High.”
James Dillet Freeman says (Article) “Charles Fillmore felt that when we find God, the Primal Cause, the intelligent Principle of the universe, we find healing, prosperity, happiness, and spiritual growth. Truth works, he taught, and he put his religion to work to help himself and to help his students. The practical Christianity he found for himself so many years ago is still practical for us today.”
Going back even further to the writings of Wallace Wattles in 1910 in The Science of Getting Rich,
“There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
Man can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.”
Wallace Wattles goes on to describe this thinking stuff as the formless substance.
To me, this is the quantum field, years prior to the science being discovered.
Brian Skinner, in his article, A Children’s Picture-book Introduction to Quantum Field Theory says that a quantum field is the stuff out of which everything is made.
In the first book in the Bible, Genesis it is said:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (King James Version)
In quantum physics there is described the vacuum, the field of infinite possibilities, also known as the wave. From the wave, comes the particle. The particle is the experience, the thing that we have thought.
So how are they all related? When we pray, we enter into the silence, with the intention of changing ourselves. When Charles went to Headquarters, he entered the silence in order to discover the truth of all that is.
When we work with the both quantum physics and the Wallace Wattles materials we discover the formless once again.
It is the formless substance that is the invisible field of infinite possibilities. It is the wave of the idea that creates the particles.
When we are able to enter into the quantum field, or the silence, we have gone beyond our minds and entered into our hearts. We have accessed the point of stillness, the point of creation, the point of infinite possibilities. Some of us call that God, others call it quantum.
So to summarize, what if God and the Quantum field are one and the same? What if they both consist only of pure love, the vibration of the Universe. In my current definition and understanding of God, they are one and the same. I’m using the terms almost interchangeably in my work now.
Would this change how you pray? Would this shift how you view your beliefs? Could you expand your mind to embrace both and?
How are you being impacted by this conversation? I’d love to know.
