“I sense the world might be more dreamlike, metaphorical, & poetic than we currently believe. I wouldn’t be surprised if poetry in the sense of a world filled w/ metaphor, rhyme, & recurring patterns— is how the world works. The world isn’t logical, it’s a song.”

—— David Byrne
Quantum physics presents the Universe as a dynamic self-organizing web of evolving beauty and deep interconnection. Great poetry and art—from Walt Whitman to Van Gogh—gives us a more unified way of seeing and experiencing the world that echoes what science has to teach us.
David Bohm, Albert Einstein, Thich Nhat Hanh, Alan Watts, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and many other wise beings have encouraged us to look at life, the Universe and ourselves as a magnificent tapestry of creative self-regenerating mystery.
Eastern ways of thinking (such as Hinduism, Taoism, Sufism and Zen) and indigenous cultures are grounded in world views that don't polarize and fracture our consciousness in the way modern economic and political thinking does.
Like the unified perspective of ecology, poetry and the arts they call our attention to the deepness of our connections to each other and all life, rather than focusing on conflicts and differences.
How we think about the world organizes our perceptions and experiences, influences our relationships and feelings toward other people, Nature and the Universe.
David Bohm once said: “Wholeness is a kind of attitude or approach to the whole of life. If we can have a coherent approach to reality then reality will respond coherently to us.”
Focusing on parts instead of wholes can create problems and then blocks our minds from finding simple solutions that the fractured and compartmentalized thinking itself had caused.
To solve our global problems will take wisdom, cooperation, innovation and new ways of working together with others. Fortunately, we live in a Universe that is creative, cooperative and regenerative by nature, that is mysterious and lawful, balanced and well-organized.
If you want to live in a more beautiful and harmonious world, first turn off the news, stop feeding your mind with political analysis and drama. Study nature, study science, read books and words that feed your soul.
Watch birds, clouds, children, trees and flowers, listen to the rivers and the rain. Read poetry, listen to beautiful music, learn to see the universe as great poets and artists see.
Talk with your neighbors and friends about the beauty of flowers, creative potential of children and how to grow food gardens.
See the Universe and people differently and you will feel different, act differently. Focus on connections and you will feel more connected. Become more balanced and you will teach others how to be more balanced.
Open your heart to the world. Share love and appreciation with people (and animals) and they will share it back.

"You are something that the Whole Universe is doing, in the same way that a wave is something that the Whole Ocean is doing..."

———Alan Watts

“Doubt everything. Find your own light.”

قال رسول الله ﷺ

"نَحْنُ أَحَقُّ بِالشَّكِّ مِنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِذْ قَالَ: " رَبِّ أَرِنِي كَيْفَ تُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ قَالَ أَوَلَمْ تُؤْمِنْ قَالَ بَلَىٰ وَلٰكِنْ لِيَطْمَئِنَّ قَلْبِي"
يقول الإمام أبو حامد الغزالي في ختام كتاب الميزان:

"لو لم يكن في مجاري هذه الكلمات إلا ما يشكك في إعتقادك الموروث لتنتدب للقلب وناهيك به نفعا إذ الشكوك هي الموصلة للحق فمن لم يشك لم ينظر ومن لم ينظر لم يبصر ومن لم يبصر بقي في العمى والضلال نعوذ بالله من ذلك”

A Response to Yuval Harari's 'Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind' By C. R. Hallpike

'He [@harari_yuval] is just in a philosophical muddle that confuses what is material with what is real, and what is immaterial with fiction.' bit.ly/3jhCrPS

Artwork by Todd Schorr
'The claim that culture is fiction is not an important insight, but is simply a perverse way of stating the obvious fact that culture is a set of shared ideas, and ideas by their very nature can't be material objects.'
'If Harari's test of reality is only what we can see, touch, or smell then mathematics, like truth, should also be a prime example of fiction.'

Whirling in the Quantum Field:

'Science is the new language of mysticism. The discoveries in quantum physics mirror mystical ideas put forth by Sufi mystics. Quantum physics points to a field of being that unifies and connects all into a field of information.
Rumi and the Sufi mystics spoke of the oneness and interconnection of all of existence. Quantum physics is now saying our identity lies not in matter but in space, not with form but with emptiness. The Sufis say our true identity is to be found in Laa Makan (no-place).
When we dissolve our personal identity into the greater, we taste our true essence.

Being flowers from non-being and to be you have to not be. Becoming present is a dying. Sufis speak of dying before you die (fana) in order to truly live (baqa).

كان المتنبي متفوقاً في نظم الحِكَم الفلسفية ببراعة وإيجاز وتفوّق على الفلاسفة في ذلك، وعلى سبيل المثال يقول أرسطو:
"أمراض الأفهام أشد من أمراض الأجسام"

ونظمها المتنبي بقوله:
يهون علينا أن تُصابَ جُسُومنا
وتَسْـلَـم أعـراضٌ لـنـا وعـقـولُ
وقول المتنبي:

إذا اعتاد الفتى خوض المنايا فأهون ما يمر به الوحول

أروع بلا جدال من قول أرسططاليس:
'من استمرت عليه الحوادث لم يألم بحلولها'
وقول المتنبي:

ومن ينفق الساعات في جمع ماله مخافة فقر فالذي فعل الفقر

منقول من قول أرسططاليس:
من أفنى مدته في جمع المال خوف العدم فقد أسلم نفسه للعدم.
