Albert Einstein said. . .

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

I encountered again this week the following often-quoted selection by Albert Einstein,

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us ‘the universe’, a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.  This delusion is a kind prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening the circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

The great thinkers of the past and of our current time understand the broad nature of interconnectedness.   Why, then, do people continue to feel themselves to be separate?

Virtual Medicine with Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

My latest read has been a book called Virtual Medicine: A New Dimension in Energy Healing by British Doctor Keith Scott-Mumby. (1999.)

This is another book that both supports and expands upon my ever-growing sense that health and healing have more to do with energy than with any other single force/element.

Scott-Mumby says the following:

“The newest concept in biology is the information field.  Information fields create reality; they put it there and hold it together the way it should be.  Have you ever wondered why a teacup is a teacup?  Why don’t the atoms at the end go wandering off and become, say, a spoon?  The answer is an information field.  When you drink a cup of tea you do so from which, in material terms, is 99.99999999 per cent not there (please don’t count the decimal places, there are dozens I didn’t bother to type). Only the field is real.  Matter, is quantum physics teachers us, is a mere illusion.  It comes out of this ‘void’ or vacuum, whenever we interact with it. . .

It follows that a cancer, a parasite, a virus (or any other disease) is just information fields.  Everything in our life and being is energy and information.  We come from fields in the egg; we go back to field as a corpse. . .

Biological information fields are unbelievably vast in the amount of data which they contain – many orders of magnitude greater than the combined total molecular complexity of our physical substances.  In other words, there is no way that the biological plasma of our bodies could contain enough information to organize and control a living organism.  We need the information field to put us there and hold us in place.  Chemicals cannot ‘think’ and organize other chemicals without some initiating input!  This one fact really does put paid once and for all to the idea of biochemically-based life, as espoused by the current drug-based medical culture.  We exist as regulated and informed energy”. (p. 4).

Whether or not you fully agree with Scott-Mumby’s articulation of his understanding, I think we might agree that it is pretty intriguing.  I subscribe to the belief that we are first and foremost beings of energy.  And I believe that human energy can be and is affected by energies of thought, prayer, intention – and love.

As we continue to send our energies of support for healing to those who need it, I thank you for this very good and very important work.
