Einstein thought about more than E=MC2. He’s a lot more than the theory of relativity and the butt of may jokes. He’s more than an image on a T-shirt. Here’s a guy in white western society, in the scientific community, a genius figuring out the structure of the Universe, and he comes up with what traditional cultures know for millenia. “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a sort of prison for us, restricting us to our personal decisions and to affections for a few persons nearest to us”.
We are not alone, we are connected, and we use those connections every day. Prayer for the sick and the troubled works because prayer is a physical thing that affects us and our reality physically. The Universe is interconnected by the beingness of every other thing. I hate to say it, but Lucas was right. The Force is with us. And Einstein knew it long before Lucas, and Native Americans, Hindus, Tibetans, and most indigenous people knew this millenia before him.
So who cares does this mean that I need to run around on a jungle planet getting in training to battle my delusions in a tree while I’m being watched by Yoda? No. What it means is that the Akashic field is real and has been utilized for a long, long time to help us deal with the “optical delusion” of being lonely beings, misunderstood by all, and miserable in our loneliness. We are connected to each other and much, much more. And Einstein knew it, crazy old coot.
