New Ways of Thinking: Life, Prayer, Consciousness

Dr. Deepak Chopra’s insight regarding prayer and its relationship to consciousness, his insight regarding the importance of acknowledging, and making an attempt to understand, the unseen, unknowable reality relationship of the inner-world experience of every human being and our connection to the universe is profoundly provocative. Over the centuries, the same notions have repeatedly come to light and endured. For eons these revelations have been the basis of Eastern philosophy.

The insights of Dr. Chopra, and others, have seemingly undeniable connections between our ever-growing knowledge of quantum physics and our understanding of consciousness.

The issue of God, whether God exists or not, in my mind is not debatable. In my mind, God is as good a synonym as any other word for this unseen, unknowable, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient reality. The world just needs to adjust to new ways of thinking. I view myself ideologically as a secular humanist, which in my mind should not be interpreted that I am an agnostic or atheist. I suppose I am in the Muslim-Judaic-Christian … view an atheist, but not within the sense of this new definition.

There are so many hidden dimensions that are a part of our existence. We only understand, and not completely, that which is in our dimension governed by our law of physics.

Life’s purpose for all human beings is our evolution. It is important to understand that “Dying in Order to Create” is as important to our existence as living. There may not be heaven in the religious sense of that word, but there is something unseen and unknowably more. Whether we can call that another reality or not, I don’t know, for words like reality, begin and end … are all the creation of human beings in this dimension.
