As you can see, I am not posting a lot on this site. My last post was 5 months ago. I concentrate on my other site which is optimize-your-life.net, my most current outlet for thoughts and musings and help for fellow humans who may be on a self growth journey of their own.
The subject I am to touch on here I don’t feel really fits in to the other site’s niche as this post is more #1 religious and #2 speculatory.
So here goes…
I ran into the article listed below and after reading it made me think a bit about the role-as I see it-of our awareness, mindfulness and ego in relationship with God.
The article speaks of quantum theory and ‘entanglement’ and its ties with Christianity. Fair enough. I totally go along with the fact that we are all of one and we, as humans, are just now figuring that out on a subatomic level. The article even referenced Romans 8 in the Holy Bible and the words of Paul in that on a level, he already knew of this quantum entanglement.
I quickly referenced Romans 8 to see what I could further learn and absorb.
I am not one to read the Bible on a continuous basis in that I feel that there are different interpretations of the holy word and how do I know which one is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. I am thinking the discussion of this is #1 a whole different post and #2 I am not one to talk of things I am not more learned in.
But what I did read of Romans 8 led me to a conclusion I had not thought of before. Paul talks in length about flesh and spirit. Spirit and flesh. How if one follows his flesh, he will die and not be saved.
I am not confessed to be a religious person in the context of the religions present in our society today. I have not conformed to one specific that I have been exposed to already. But I will confess to be spiritual. I believe that there is a God that created all of what we have around us and ourselves. I believe we have been created in his own image.
Back to Paul…
We are spirits. We are our soul. We are born in a meatbag and from that moment on must conform to our teachers and parents and other mentors to become the compliant humans they unconsciously want us to be. In most cases, that conformance is of flawed thinking. Some of us turn out to be great humans from totally shunning this thinking.
You better believe that the humans who become great thinkers, inventors and the most successful humans are the ones who have shunned and are of the most free spirits there are. Spirits who have shed the aberrations and conditioning from their childhood to become great contributors to the human race.
The absorbed aberrations of non-truths and false conditioning from our societies is the flesh. That could be the flesh that Paul speaks of in Romans 8. The limiting beliefs that we adopt as we grow from generalities we naively construct in our brains is the flesh. We must overcome this flesh we have become mired in to be of spirit.
Here is Romans 8:5-8
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
That is but a small taste of Romans 8. Our Master God, who created all but gave us the free will to choose, still gave us the path to choose. We can choose our demise or our deliverance. He knows the greatest spirits will choose this path-His Path-and will be saved to his Kingdom.
So quantum mechanics and entanglement may be another clue to how we become better humans. Work on freeing our spirit from our flesh by ridding ourselves from the mired ideas we currently operate with.
So this theory may be a jump,if you will. But I believe the thoughts I have exposed you to be sound. Or maybe just a different interpretation.
Nevertheless, my ideas are food for thought.
