FAITH AND QUANTUM PHYSICS - PART I: "How We 'See' Things"

I'm happy to announce that I will be participating in The Decatur Book Festival on Labor Day weekend as an "emerging author"...they will be selling two of my titles: 'FIRST, THE GOOD NEWS' and '20/20 VISION'...in the meantime, I am creating my next book here on BLOGINTHENOW 2, which may actually end up being two books (I may be pregnant with twins!)...I want to put much of the material from the FAITH THAT MOVES MOUNTAINS series into book form (dealing with faith, Quantum Physics, the subconscious mind, the power of words, etc), and I also plan on doing a sort of sequel to 'A YEAR IN THE NOW' that moves beyond the phrase "Today I will...", and replaces it with "Today I AM..."...as I said, it may end up being two different books, or it may be the same one...it's still gestating...just using the tools of virtual reality to start the manifestation process..."In the beginning was willed action..." (John 1:1 Khaboris Manuscript)...


1. IT'S NOT WHAT YOU SEE THAT COUNTS...IT'S HOW YOU SEE!

"I believe anything is possible. Research into quantum physics proves that a system changes simply by someone observing it. Therefore, all you have to do is be awake and aware of your environment, and that enables you to transform everything around you. It sounds like hocus pocus, but scientists are coming to realize that just thinking about something can make it happen. Turns out maybe faith can move mountains."
- Christine Anderson


Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in.  And the Lord said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor.

(Joshua 6:1, 2 - NKJV)


2. CHANGE IS GONNA COME

"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
- Max Planck


"The light for your earthly life is perception. Therefore, if your perception is without fault, your whole life shall be enlightened"
 
(Matthew 6:22 -


3.  NOW FAITH IS...FAITH IS NOW!

“Quantum physics looks at the universe differently. In recent years, scientists have developed the technology that has made it possible to document the strange and sometimes miraculous behavior of the quantum energy that forms the essence of the universe and our bodies. For Example: Quantum energy can exist in two very different forms as visible particles or invisible waves. The energy is still there either way, just making itself known in different forms.

A quantum particle can be in one place only, two places at once, or even in many places simultaneously. The interesting thing, however, is that no matter how far apart these locations appear to be physically, the particle acts as if it’s still connected. Quantum particles can communicate with themselves at different points in time. They’re not limited by the concepts of past, present, and future. To a quantum particle, this is now and there is here.”
- Gregg Braden

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1 - NKJV)



4. SEEING IS BELIEVING...BELIEVING IS SEEING!

“In modern physics, there is no such thing as "nothing." Even in a perfect vacuum, pairs of virtual particles are constantly being created and destroyed. The existence of these particles is no mathematical fiction. Though they cannot be directly observed, the effects they create are quite real. The assumption that they exist leads to predictions that have been confirmed by experiment to a high degree of accuracy.”
― Richard Morris

 "Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18 - NKJV)



5. BELIEVING IS SEEING...SEEING IS BELIEVING!

"Quantum theory thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe. It shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As we penetrate into matter, nature does not show us any isolated “building blocks,” but rather appears as a complicated web of relations between the various parts of the whole. These relations always include the observer in an essential way. The human observer constitute the final link in the chain of observational processes, and the properties of any atomic object can be understood only in terms of the object's interaction with the observer."
- Fritjof Capra

 "For we walk by faith, not by sight." (2 Corinthians 5:7 - NKJV)



6. THOUGHTS ARE THINGS!

“A thought is a Cosmic Order waiting to happen.”
- Stephen Richards


"Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy."
(Philippians 4:8 - The Voice)

 

7. AS ABOVE, SO BELOW

"For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries."
- Robert Jastrow


 Meanwhile the earth fills up with awareness of God’s glory as the waters cover the sea.
(Habakkuk 2:14 - The Message)

    I appreciate all the implications of the Double Slit Experiment. Also, the theory of entanglement shows me how we are all connected and everything we do has an an effect on others. We truly are one with God and each other. One last thing....I love how the Spirit is revealing Himself to everyone on whatever level they are able to perceive Him. Keep up the great work!

  5. Makes me think of many years ago when I used to do street ministry...I would stand on the sidewalk corner with my guitar and sing the Nancy Harmon classic, "Wrapped Up, Tied Up, Tangled all up in Jesus"...

    Just recently watched a movie on Netflix called "The Secret" about the law of attraction & manifestation...it hit Christi so hard that she wept. Also, I've really been bombarded lately from many different sources with the word "coincidence" as well. As I said in my letter to the cosmos about Cindy, things don't just fall into place, they were made to fit perfectly... to coincide with each other. I'm proud of your evoloution in Christ, able to ignore tradition & focus on what's real & what I believe is God's true way. We've been programed for so long on man's interpretation that we've lost the ability to really connect with God...the universe...ourselves. Lift the veil, speak the truth.

    Well Bishop, you are truly "lifting the veil" and our minds and hearts are ready. You have enabled us to be ready. Thank you! I am so excited.....

  9. Thanks, Antonio...that really means a lot! 'The Secret' is awesome...I haven't watched it in a long time, but I probably should check it out again for a refresher course...so much of it is absolutely right on...it's good to hear from you...I've thought about you a lot in the weeks since Cindy transitioned...trust you're doing well...again, thanks...

    I can't say ditto enough to all these comments. This has LITERALLY been a life changing series for me, Bish. I find myself verbally rejecting thoughts that come into my head. Also, it's made me so very aware of what I speak AND think! Such a game changer!! WOW! Keep up the great work. You are truly a trail blazer!!! XOXO

  14. I ran across a new definition the other day that really excited me. I saw that the word inspire has a synonym that is "inspirit" and the definition of this is "enliven"...that word really works for me...it is easy to enliven others as they observe my transformation and my growth.

    Then yesterday my Abraham-Hicks quote was something that really shifted my perspective in a very powerful way...thought I would share with you and your enlivened group...

    What "moving thought forward" is, is about being a nucleus that attracts different components of thought so that when they actualize around you — it is different than it has ever been before!

    "As I stand in my focused, human, leading-edge experience, and I choose this combination of thoughts and feelings, I am offering a signal that has never been offered before. And so, the Universe must uniquely yield to me, which causes me to offer a vibration that maybe someone somewhere else is matching. If they are, they will certainly come into my experience for the time that we are matching it." That is the way you affect the world.

    Most think in terms of thought affecting the world: You think about transmitting outward: "I'm going to affect the world from my outgoing signal." That isn't the way it works. You affect the world by achieving the vibration that brings the signals to you. You create a nucleus that Universe has to respond around. That is how you are the creator.

    Enjoy and keep creating your reality! All is well...
