This quote from my beloved teacher, Dr. David R. Hawkins, really resonated with me today:
"Address the level of POWER to change a situation, not FORCE (form). What can we do as a spiritual community? By letting go of our own ego / positionality, we reinforce the field. By collapsing the wave function, we change the field."
-Dr. David R. Hawkins, The Book of Slides, p. 69
What does this mean? It means that the most effective, powerful way to create lasting change in this world happens when we merge with the field of consciousness, which is really a metaphysical, quantum realm. To change the world "out there", we can either try to use force, -by manipulating form and putting in a lot of effort, or we can directly tap into the field that connects us all, set a clear intention, and ask for assistance from the Divine. This is the true power out of which prayers are answered and miracles spontaneously occur. This is how we, as a spiritual community, can profoundly change the world without lifting a finger!
For the past few months, I have been living through one of the most challenging times of my life. It has also been a time during which I have experienced and witnessed more miracles than ever before! I am deeply grateful for all of it. I know prayer works, and I feel a strong desire to serve and give back to my community.
