Life and the physics of miracles (needs a little hug)

I had to read through the entire book to get to the one phase that stands out above all the rest to me. It’s located in the fifth to the last paragraph and it’s not even written by the author Richard Bartlett.

When we play, we invoke magic because our mind is not interfering, fretting and measuring what isn’t.

–          SB, a masterful wizard of Matrix Energetics.

That really is cutting to the heart of it all. If that statement rings as true to you as it does to me, we’ve both experienced what it’s like to step out of your mind to let your being shine through. For when the intellect gets shoved aside by the act of being the miracle of life is what’s experienced. If that shines through during the act of playing, bring it on.

If you really think about playing and let yourself reflect on your own experiences, the act of playing may take on a broader scope.

When was the last time a song moved you? There is something special about the act of singing. It is an art, yet, at the same time, it is human expression that can not only be heard, but felt. For example, if you’ve seen the move The Shawshank Redemption I’ll bet you can remember being moved by the following scene. If you’re short on time, scoot ahead to the 2 minute mark.

How can that scene not move you? The narration provided during that clip from Morgan Freeman really does sum up the situation. And, if you can remember the point when “Andy” gets back from spending two weeks on the hole, he mentioned something like; you can lock away a man, but they can never take what’s in his heart. That is something that can never take away. You’ve got to stay in touch with that and never lose hope.

The moment when the person is participating with the performance the mind has stepped out of the way so the performance can be felt and experienced. You don’t see the people intellectualizing over whether or not the opera singers hit the correct notes or speak the correct words, no, you just experience it.

Here is another performance that you experience more than simply listening. Happens to be a group that I never get tired of hearing.

This, my internet friends, is playing at its finest.

I hope you haven’t forgot this performance:

What do all these clips have in common? From my point of view, the intellect has stepped back to let the soul of the person (people) shine through so that we can feel and experience the art of being. We feel what’s transpiring rather than simply seeing it or hearing it.

When reading through the physics of miracles, there were a number of locations where the author mentioned that the miracle happens when you get the head out of the way. And, this is exactly what I see when I witness the beauty in these different performances. They are miracles happening out in the open and readily available to experience if you so choose. These miracles are happening all the time. They are ever present for your enjoyment you just need to be able to recognize them as the artwork that it is.

There is another statement that rings true to me in the Manifestation chapter of Dr Bartlett’s second piece. It’s not all that different from the concept of playing.

One of the best ways to manifest what you want is to stop wanting and stop manifesting. In this way there are fewer struggles, thus freeing up far more energy to be directed unconsciously and unerringly to the target of your secret desires. Things will just show up and people will think that you’re lucky!

I believe that this is in line with what I’ve experienced. If you focus on the act of acquiring, that’s what you get – the actions that go along with attempting to acquire. If you focus on the act of being, with the knowledge that the item will come your way, the item will come your way.

He also says:

… when you consciously sustain a desire or want, the phase-conjugate opposite reality – exactly and precisely what you don’t want – is also manifested.

That statement really sums up what I observe happening with most people – or at least the ones that don’t get their requests (desires) delivered. You see, there is a difference between putting energy into a desire verses putting energy into a manifestation. The difference, how I see it, is that when you constantly think about ‘wanting’ something, you are constantly reminding yourself that you do not have it. If every day you wake up and affirm “I want a new car”, you will be constantly placing energy into the thought of not currently having a new car. Day in and day out, your energy will confirm that you ‘want’ a new car but don’t have it.

What you really want is to have the energy confirm that you already have a new car and, then, simply, not worry about it. In other words, define clearly what kind of car you desire, picture it in all its living detail. Act as if you feel the way the car drives, the smell of the interior, the sensation of acceleration and all the other fine details of the car and then simply ask to have your desires fulfilled. Now, at this point, let go of the image, but maintain the feeling.

When you do this, you have used your energy to experience the car. You have clearly outlined your desire and ‘attuned’ yourself to the act of playing with your new car. That process of ‘attuning’ yourself to your desire will set in motion the attraction that will bring that experience into manifestation.

At the same time, the conscious experience you envisioned about the new car will allow you to not dwell on the ‘wanting’ a new car because you have already experienced that new car. It is no longer energy of ‘want’ but rather energy of ‘experience.’ It’s a different focus that moves you out of dwelling on the wanting.

I hope that all makes sense. If not, let me know and I’ll rephrase it with a different collection of words.

Moving forward in the book, the first tag that I made was on the statement:

My goal for you in reading this book is that you realize that all situations in life are merely patterns of light and information.

When I read that statement, I was totally jazzed for what was to come (from page 27). At the top of that same page, the book title The Physics of Miracles confirmed that I was going to get an eye full of words all about how everything broke down into light. And, if you’ve read some of the other articles that I’ve posted about light, you could probably understand my excitement.

Well, as it turns out, he barely touched on this goal leaving me a bit disappointed, but not completely disappointed for he really touched on what’s most important – getting out of the mind to let the joy of experiencing life happen.  

I guess I’ll have to keep researching how everything breaks down into light while remembering to get out of my head!

I believe that the biggest point that Dr. Bartlett makes in this book is that there are many things in life that you simply ‘experience’ and you can try to explain them but the words used to do so don’t always paint the same picture. As with the videos that I’ve linked in; you can immediately feel the performance, but if you try to describe it using words (intellect) it’s pretty hard to clearly describe what you can so easily experience.

I guess the last concept that really stands out is that there is a ‘quantum’ difference between how the mind processes information and how the heart does. He points out that the mind processes linearly where as the heart processes in parallel. If you don’t understand the difference, processing linearly means that you process the information one item after another. Like reading words in a book. Yet, when you process with your heart, in parallel, it’s like stepping out into the backyard on a beautiful day and experiencing everything all at once. The moment of being present at that instant is full of a million wonderful things and you experience them all at the same time. As you focus on what’s happening, you start to linearly intellectualize each item in turn; the birds singing, squirrels jumping in the trees, the wind blowing and what not.

I love these quotes and look forward to reviewing this book a second time. For now, I’ve got one new act to perform on a regular basis. That is, to perform more parallel processing in life!

Enjoy the moment!
