human consciousness. The human being has the capacity to connect
and move to higher levels of consciousness through intensification,
concentration and expansion that creates an ontological shift in
dimesnions; each magnifies the other. The experience in spiritual
practice is a dissolution of the structures of personality by understanding
through the simultaneous realization in body, mind and spirit that
ther is an absolute and ultimate connection between the heart of
the human being and the eternal universe. This is inter-subjectively
verifiable. At this moment or in this breath, time stands still,
space is a void and all that exists is in the presence of oneness
within light. this is the point of consciousness that exists beyond
time and is deeply united with the divine.
is a deeply creative transformative process that reveals to the
human being her/his integral and intricate connection to the universe.
It can arise in subtle or profound experiences through suffering
and ecstatic bliss. It is the unfolding of the essence of all creation.
The creative is generally considered to be the realm of reality
understood with the mind through imagination. Imagination necessarily
requires mental images that may not actually be present to the senses,
such as, an inner perception of light. Imagination can also be understood
to mean a source of energy through the development of the capacity
to obtain new forms of previously confined energy. By imagining
a new way of knowing and understanding we can experience a new energy
source that lies deeply within each of us. The experience of resonance
is a field of energy that vibrates within the magnetism of the universal
chain of being. This opens the human bieng to experience consciousness.
The creative process guides the human being to grasp the powers
of the universe. We become stimulated by life and consciously enter
a process of co-creativity. the human being realizes that Self is
embedded in a cosmology of awareness which is united with the reality
of the existence. The energy field around and within the individual
cultivates an inner awareness of the source of creation.
Augustine's story of the resonance of time is quite profound because
it is the story of the divine universe embedded within the human
being. The human being is part of the whole creation; just as the
particle is united with the whole, the finite with the infinite.
The power of time as resonance is eloquently described in the following
a group of people get together and form a circle of a united intention,
their hearts connect and in this unified connection they begin to
create an extremely powerful energy and electromagnetic system.
In the union of energies, energies do not add, they multiply. And
if there are extremely powerful people, with powerful concentration
ability among this group, the multiplication of energy will increase
even more. It can create and it can direct to a favorable destination.
It actually effects the course of energy-waves (Nahid Angha, 1993,
entire system is beyond the past, present and future. Creativity
is the real imaginative quest of a human being seeking self knowledge.
St. Augustine is a good example of this principle. This is applicable
to any area of focus with passion to effect systemic change, whether
it is the work of scientists, political activits, teachers or spiritual
quests for knowledge as a scientist in his or her own inner laboratory
(Conversations with Shah Nazar Dr. Seyed Ali Kianfar, 1998). The
twentieth century human being has become alienated from the universe
through technological advancement and materialism. St. Augustine
devoted his life to understanding the biblical meaning of time arising
from the story of the divine. The rational body "is formed
by the imaginations, thought and wishes of the rational soul and
its brightness and gentleness depends on the purified heartly intentions,
ideas and ethical virtues" (Nahid Angha, 1993, p. 118). His
intention through devotion seemed to magnify his search for knowledge
as depicted through his tenacious quest to understand time.
us examine briefly the power of time because it is a scientific
dimension of consciousness that is part of the essential unfolding
of the human being. Science is in accord with St. Augustine's view
of time as evidenced by the following twentieth century cosmological
understanding of time.
realm of power that brings forth the universe is not itself an event
in time, nor a position in space, but is rather the very matrix
out of which the conditions arise that enable temporal events to
occur in space. Though the originating power gave birth to the universe
fifteen billion years ago, this realm of power is not simply located
there at that point of time, but is rathre a condition of every
moment of the universe, past, present and future (Swimme, 1992,
is only one constant time that encompasses past, present and future
simultaneously. Science indicates that the universe is comprised
of systems of waves, atoms, electrons, protons, etc. Waves which
are free are light. Waves that are confined are matter. Therefore,
light waves can travel freely through time and space, without the
limitation of matter. The universal laws are constant and harmonious.
"The Sun, each second, transforms four million tons of itself
into light. Each second a huge chunk of the Sun vanishes into radiant
energy that soars away in all directions" (Swimme, 1996, p.
39). At the heart of the cosmos is the timeless union of the human
being with the divine.
beings can connect to this source if we try to see beyond the limitations
of our eyes. Actions and reactions, the hidden and the apparent
are engraved in the universes story so that . . .
