Re-awakening the Sacredness within and all around us
Quantum scientists are now confirming the existence of an all-pervasive presence which is everywhere, permeating everything; a spacious presence flowing throughout reality from which energy and matter are birthed. Scientists call this the quantum vacuum, zero-point energy, bio-force or life-force energy and it is the same phenomenon as what the ancient mystics, seers, shamans, philosophers and prophets have long spoken of: Akasha, Tao, Shekinah, Divine Ground, Motherly Space, etc.
‘The true ground of all being is the infinite, intangible, spirit that infuses all living beings’ David Bohm
Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch and others have referred to this all-pervasive field as an underlying sea of quantum light, from which all matter and energy originates. Like crests of waves emerge from the ocean, electromagnetic energy projects within our space-time dimension from this oceanic all-pervasive presence.
Our creation, as we perceive it, is formed from charged, polarised energy projecting particle-like from the uncharged background sea of quantum energy.
This quantum vision of reality transforms everything we knew of life and enables us to explain the inter-relatedness of life we may sometimes intuit.
This all-pervasive underlying grammar of Nature has been explained in esoteric ways by all major religions as the primordial pattern of creation. Ancient mythology explains that the original Logos or Word or eternal OM is a primordial vibration from which diversity of all forms and patterns within creation evolve.
This all-pervasive primordial vibration creates a vortex motion, which in three-dimensional space is referred to as the ‘seed of life’, which creates the ‘egg of life’ the basis of all music and all vibrational harmonies, which then creates all energy systems in Nature, for instance the cell embryonic divisions in our own bodies.
As the ‘egg of life’ develops further it produces the ‘flower of life’ from which is revealed the ‘fruit of life’ which contains the long revered, Metatron’s Cube. This is often deemed the most sacred of structures, consisting of thirteen interlaced spheres – thirteen informational systems – containing the Platonic Solids (the 3-dimensional polyhedron shapes of the cube, icosahedron, tetrahedron, octahedron and dodecahedron). These energy systems can be found in all levels of creation ranging from water crystals, plant growth, DNA, our human bodies and the formation of galaxies.
The great Renaissance genius of the 15th century, Leonardo Da Vinci, used the flower of life in many of his pioneering inventions.
At the turn of the 17th century mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler made reference to these ancient geometric shapes in his astronomy of the solar system, which he saw as exemplifying the attunement of the physical and spiritual dimensions of reality. Also the 20th century inventor Buckminster Fuller made reference to these geometric patterns and concepts in his ‘synergistic’ worldview. Yet knowledge of these ancient geometric shapes spans back to Plato, to Pythagoras, to the ancient Magi alchemists and Druidic Celts and further back to the old Religions of Tantra and Shamanism.
The ancient images of the ‘flower of life’ have been found throughout the world, for instance, in the temples in Egypt and at ancient sacred sites in Assyria, India, China, Mesoamerican Maya and also in European Celtic art.
It is as if there is an inherent wisdom contained within life that the ancients knew of and which our recent scientific endeavours are starting to uncover – a primordial vibratory field, a music of the spheres, Musica universalis. This is the sacred Song of Nature which we are all immersed, and participate, within.
Such ‘sacred geometry’ can be applied within the design of sacred buildings in order to help our attunement with the divine. For instance, medieval stain-glass windows, wooden or stone bosses on ceilings and handrails, intricate arches, altar and chancel screens, and so on. The architects, masons and knights of medieval times were aware of the deeper wisdom such patterns imbued. With modern neuroscience, we now recognise that such patterns and forms encourage a coherence of our left-brain and right-brain hemispheres along with an entrainment of our heads and hearts. This allows for a deeper contemplative receptivity within our bodyminds, and so aiding our attunement with the inherent wisdom flowing all around and within us. Much of this sacred knowledge has been overlooked in our consumerist materialism, but it is always here, never lost.
‘This divine ground is within and all around us. We need to create a sanctuary within ourselves to listen to its guidance’ Anne Baring
The good news is that we do not need to be philosophically or esoterically inclined to attune with this ground of all being. All we need to do is to open ourselves up to our natural awareness, freed from our ego-chatter. It is through the presencing of life, uncluttered from our habituations and pre-occupations of past and future, that we allow the deeper wisdom of life to come through us and enrich our perceptions, intuition and insight.
Every blade of grass and flower has this intrinsic wisdom. Likewise within us at partly unconscious levels flows this ancient, intuitive consciousness. It is everywhere, the all-pervasive primordial consciousness flowing within every evolving moment; to re-cognise this is to awaken to the awe-inspiring reality of our role as conscious co-creators within this participatory evolution of life.
‘To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour’ – William Blake
The underlying ‘quantum vacuum’ with its immense vibratory wisdom is the underlying Dance of Life – the animating principle pervading the universe out of which the un-manifest becomes manifest.
The ancient and timeless Tantric and Shamanic traditions speak of the engulfing cosmic womb (or ‘yoni’) which gives birth to the manifest upon conception with the conscious spark of energy potential (or ‘lingam’). This is the sacred masculine of our psychic quicksilver fertilising the Divine Feminine, the ground of our being (or ‘anima mundi’).
Learning to attune our every-day awareness and creative potential within this deeper soulful consciousness allows for a conscious awakening of this ancient wisdom whereupon we harmonise within the soulful depths of Nature – true sustainability.
With our attention and intention we can align ourselves to the vortex of our true nature, right here, right now, allowing our bodyminds to attune with the pulsation of our souls nested within the pulsation of Nature’s Soul within the deeper cosmic soul.
Like yin-yang, our consciousness and the underlying Dance of Life are inseparable yet attuning; the dancer and the dance. To attune with this inherent wisdom – what the ancient Greeks referred to as Sophia – is the beginning of authenticity, spawning right thought, word and deed – the source of Truth. To perceive this harmonisation within Nature is a very human quality. It is very much of this world, of this moment and our bodies and senses are alchemic vessels that concoct and co-create with this Song of Nature in order to realise our destiny as fully actualised wise beings (Homo sapiens).
These transformational times beckon us to wake up to this Song of Songs, through our passionate, compassionate, loving embrace of our self-Self, self-other, self-Nature interrelations. As we open up to this primordial wisdom of Love, we begin to realise that the awakening of self comes with the awakening of others, a collective humanitarian shift in consciousness no less.
