I was chatting to a photographer today who's quite 'spiritually aware'. He's up to speed, so to speak, with the intuitive, artistic dimensions to life. In fact he spoke in terms of waves, and how we can build them (but not strictly from a quantum mechanical perspective -- but I digress).
As we chatted he suggested that I need to make my work more digestible, not so technical for the masses.
So I explained some of the practical benefits to understanding qp (quantum physics). I shared my recent experiences of how to safely speed and intuitively feel when to slow down (I explained how I "might have" recently let my V6-engined car stretch its legs for awhile, up around 140 to 150 kms/hour, pulling back on the reins when approaching a hill, beyond which, as it turned out was a police radar car approaching the other way).
It's not about avoiding being caught (although of course it'd be a pain in the proverbial to be done for such speeds), but about speeding safely. It's only irresponsible for those who are not 'plugged in' and who need to blindly follow rules (pun intended) .. in which case they really do need to be careful and travel at or below the speed limit, or even not travel at all.1
The retelling of my experiences reminded me of someone with whom I used to have interesting intellectual chats, but who did not appreciate the benefits of what I have called 'nonlocal awareness' which enables such things as safely speeding and avoiding accidents.
The story goes (since it is my memory, and the person involved might have a different take on things): I'm driving my intellectual friend back to his house and along one particular tree-lined street he started getting anxious. He asked that I be careful, as the trees along this particular street were notorious for dropping branches which could harm or kill someone if they were struck.
The conversation went something like this:
Him: "Hey, watch out, this street is bad for trees dropping branches."
Me: "Hmm," pausing, but continuing to drive, "nah, I don't feel anything. All's good".
Him (getting now noticeably irate): "No I'm TELLING you this street is DANGEROUS. Go wide, BE CAREFUL."
Me: "I just told you, all's good. Everything's interconnected, and I'm not getting the heebie-jeebies driving down here."
Him: "You're being stupid and irresponsible..." (or words to that effect).
Me: "Man, what's the matter with you. Chill out, tune in and relax. Everything's interconnected. You can't not be getting the signals. It's impossible NOT to get them. You're just not paying attention."
We drove down the street without mishap. He visibly seethed, and probably to this day thinks I'm irresponsible, careless or foolhardy or some such.
His fear. Not mine.
His fear is (or was) rooted in an old-paradigm world-view, one that is still prevalent in our society today - and one that cause immense upset and fear. It really is a travesty of science and religion to continue pushing theories based on fundamental disconnects that cause people to live in fear.
There are many more examples of how to use qp for practical benefit, including such examples (that will be more fully covered in a new book) as winning at gambling (I don't make a habit of this -- bad karma, as it requires others to lose); finding missing important items that defied (at the time, increasingly frantic) searching by friends; finding wellness in the face of severe 'incurable' illness.
The list goes on.
When one understands that all is interconnected, instantly, and that those interconnections connect across time as well (this messes with your head a little, at first), extraordinary 'out of the box' solutions (and wonderful creativity) emerge.
- 1. I should add (after a friend read the above and we chatted concerning it all) that nonlocal awareness requires quite a deal of focus, intent, experience and understanding. There's some specific techniques that are helpful (utilising simultaneous-time concepts) that are quite necessary to feed the intuitions. Those techniques and knowledge along with many more practical uses and experiences of nonlocal awareness will be included in my next book
