Is there anything new under the sun?
Those of us in the spiritual quest know that there isn't. Indeed,
we are learning by repetition to remember what we forgot: we are
all part of something beyond words, unlimited, indivisible and
Plato, the Greek philosopher who lived 400 years before Christ,
wrote, " there is no such thing as teaching, only
remembering. We have learned everything there is to learn, the
more we seek to learn, the more we must realize that seeking and
learning is all remembrance." (Meno, 79C-81A).
Where does learning come from and why do we forget? In my
spiritual quest, I have learned that we are not separate from
"something" which may be called a unified source of
light, and some of us call: God. I also learned why we choose to
forget about our true identity, and come to earth and invent
symbols to help us remember.
Recently, Dr.Wang, of Princeton University, concluded that light
arrives at its destination almost before it initiates its journey.
Light seems to exist in two places at the same time, and space and
time do not matter. Light, then, could carry information and cause
does not seem to come after the effect. This research disrupts
Einstein's work which specifies that the speed of light (186.000
miles per second), cannot be broken. Yet, Dr. Wang was able
to transmit a pulse of light at a speed 300 times faster than
light. This is cause for excitement; it helps us realize that on
earth we are surrounded by nothing but symbols and metaphors that
help us remember that we are part of a "Reality" for
which space and time do not matter. That "Reality" is
everywhere, therefore within us, and not just in "two
places". That "Reality" knows all there is to know;
IT is simultaneous, therefore we never separated from IT; cause and effect are not separate.
We know, deep down in our hearts, that Father (our cause) and
Son/Daughter (the effect) are always together in spirit, in spite
of the fact that we perceive them as separate in physical form.
Scientists work with propositions to be proved later. They
also work with uncertainties. The purpose of science is not to
prove the existence of a Higher Self for that does not need to be
proven: it is continuously experienced. The purpose of science is
to make our experiences seem less absurd. Indeed, all symbols and
metaphors produce memory and lead to remembrance.
We know that scientists work with particles of light called
photons. Photons are a symbol of unified light. Is it possible
that Dr. Wang could be working with "something else" and
not "light"? We can rest assured that other
symbols will be invented soon and will take us back to our circle
of learning. We are being taught to remember, again and again, our
real identity: space and time do not exist, we know all there is
to know, we choose to forget. This may seem hard to believe but if
you think deeply it is not. Leonardo da Vinci's manuscripts (15th
century) describing flying machines, launching of bombs, and
scientific diagrams were considered an absurd at that time. Was he
more intelligent than us? No. He contacted the part of his mind
where knowledge is stored. Plato did the same but as a
philosopher. You can do it too. Reflect on the following quote
from Ecclesiastes chapter 1, verse 8 " The thing that has been, it
is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall
be done; and there is no new thing under the sun."
Within you is all the knowledge there is. Within you is all the
Love and Light there is. You just forgot, now you've to remember.
