Genie In A Bottle

Aug 17, 2007
It is beginning to dawn on me that the only possible response to life is awe and wonder.

It is fascinating to consider how both quantum mechanics and mysticism point us back upon ourselves as the core of the ultimate reality, the root of life, the ground of the universe, and the source of all sentience.

It is also fascinating to realize that our thoughts are potent and that the genie in a bottle is not some far away intelligence that listens to us if we implore long enough but our own divine nature.

Amplify this to the nth dimension and what you have is a universe that is alive, a symphony of the three vibrational fields of energy, matter, and intelligence. What's more, this entire orchestration appears to be running spontaneously and effortlessly.

In this bundle of finely-coordinated matter we refer to as our bodies, we appear to be an aspect of that intelligence that coordinates all of it. We are explorers of the quantum field expressed as a world.
Our job, as far as I can tell, is to create as we go along, not only to sustain our energy systems in the matrix of all possibilities, but also for its own sake, because creative self-expression fills us with joy, whether it be through coordinating the patterns of information in art or science or through something as sublime as an act of compassion.

Ironically, even our insistence on creating limitations, both collectively and individually, on who we are and what we can do, is an act of creativity, a twist of the plot where our fear of our own power causes us to imprison our own splendor.
Glimpsing the infinite correlation that makes a person function in a world, an immense curiosity can compel one to deepen the exploration of inner space.

This is known as the spiritual journey; but it only remains dynamic if one does not settle for any of the proffered answers. The moment the power of inquiry settles upon an answer, one has settled for certainty where the wisdom of insecurity is the only true guide.
We can never know who we are or why we are here or what any of this is all about because we are dealing with infinite processes, a continuous expansion of intelligence experiencing itself on escalating levels.

The most sensible response is to forget about Platonic absolutes and finite causality, believing that this river of life that is us has beginnings and endings, final resolutions and satisfying summaries. Instead, we have to embrace the non-conceptual view that just as time can never be captured or that space has no edge, so, too, we, these thinking fields of awareness in a thinking universe are unfolding stories without a final chapter.

This view does take courage, but when you think deeply about it, nothing could be more exhilarating. And as the genie in the bottle that is emerging into an ever wider view of things, a sense of awe and wonder can be the only intelligent response to the experience of living in a mystery that has no defined boundaries.
