This Week’s Quotation:
There is an already-existing field that you and I did not have to invent. It does not depend or rely on us in any way. Our experience as human beings relies on what we do, but that larger creative field, that universal field, does not rely on us. It is already existing. It is being held by angels, not by us as mere human beings. It is being held by Universal Being, by the beingness of the cosmos. And when we become aware of that larger field, we become aware of possibility and potential for our field. It is the possibility and potential that what is present in that larger field could manifest on Earth.
~ Becoming a Sun p. 209
The Already-Existing Field
Most of my book, Becoming a Sun, is devoted to an exploration of the human capacity. It is a daring penetration of human consciousness and the emotional and spiritual intelligence that cracks it open.
But in the end, we can’t really understand ourselves without acknowledging the vast context in which we live our lives and an intuitive awareness of that immense reality.
Sometimes religion and spirituality open a person to that awareness. But all too often, people become stuck in thoughtless ritual or belief in a rigid dogma. Then, any real spiritual connection fades.
So, there are parts of my book where I address the vast context for our human experience. The excerpt above is one of them.
Of course, angels can be the subject of religious doctrine. Taking them out of that context, aren’t they simply a symbol of our awareness that we, as human beings, are not the only sentient presence in the universe? I’m not talking about ETs here. I am saying that the whole universe is filled with sentient presence. Or, to use a religious word, it is filled with God.
Because there are ranges to what I am addressing that go beyond what can be observed by human sight—even with the most powerful telescope—I, or anyone else, could make up anything we like. And who would prove us wrong? But I am not so interested in fantasy or fabrication. I am interested in the intuitive awareness that we live our lives in the presence of a reality that is bigger than we are as human beings.
Can you feel that? Can you touch it in your heart?
As I feel it, it is sacred. It is vast and awesome. It is unbelievably beautiful. It is full of love. There are angels all about.
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
