This Week’s Quotation:
There is a creative field being held by angels. 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.

The Realm of Angels
Picture in your mind the depths of space. Picture the space immediately around our planet, in which the moon orbits. Picture the space in which the planets of our solar system revolve around the sun. And then, think of the depths of space in which our solar system circles the Sagittarius A* at the center of the Milky Way galaxy, along with all the other star systems.
I pose to you that there are two ways to relate to this vastness in which we dwell. We can see it as either matter and energy without a soul or presence—light years of emptiness interrupted by occasional balls of mineral substance and tremendous physical power. Or, it is all alive and aware—an embodiment at a physical level of a transcendent Presence.
Rupert Sheldrake and Matthew Fox said this on the subject in their book Physics of Angels:
Through the scientific revolution of the seventeenth century, the universe was mechanized, and at the same time, the heavens were secularized. They were made up of ordinary matter gliding around in perfect accordance with Newtonian laws. There was no room in them for angelic intentions. Angels had no place in a mechanistic world, except perhaps as psychological phenomena, existing only within our imaginations.
But this mechanistic worldview is now being superseded by science itself.
I can’t give a full report on the book here. I can say that we have a choice as to how we conceive of the universe in which we dwell, including this precious blue-green orb on which we live. We can see it as alive or dead. How we see it determines the experience of ourselves and our world.
So open yourself to the possibility that you live in a world surrounded by angelic presence. See what happens.
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.
