This is one of the most significant questions we can truly ask ourselves in life. In this post today, I am presenting you with a choice… And your answer to this question has the very real potential to change your life in more ways than you can ever possibly imagine…
This famous line came from one of the most well-known and popular science fiction movies of all time, the Matrix. Although the movie is fiction, it has very symbolic and philosophical undertones that represent the nature of reality and our human desire to learn more about the truth of our existence. When Neo is asked whether he wants the red pill or the blue pill, he is being forced to choose between discovering the TRUTH of reality or continuing to live in comfortable ignorance… And of course, he takes the red pill and is immediately ‘awakened’ from the world of illusion he was once living in, the Matrix.
In our society today, most people are all too willing to just accept things as they appear… They don’t question the beliefs they have about the world or who they really are. And often times, our constructed belief systems become the ‘lenses’ through which we interpret reality. So what happens if (or I guess I should say, ‘when’) our beliefs and world-views are found to be wrong? Well, when we have the courage to lift up the ‘veil of illusion’ that we’ve been conditioned to believe (or in Neo’s case, wake up from the Matrix), we come to find that reality is not really what we think it is!
So when I ask you if you want the red pill or the blue pill, I’m asking you if you’re willing and open to question your true nature… Do you want to know the truth or do you want to stay in the Matrix? How willing are you to let go of old beliefs and ideas that you might find to no longer be true?
Well, for me, I definitely decided to take the red pill a long time ago. It happened a few years ago when I finally started questioning everything that I’ve been told and taken for granted as truth. I started questioning society and it’s standards and norms… I started questioning what I had been taught about ‘God’… And most importantly, I started questioning the nature of who I really was.
And I’ve been on this journey of self-discovery ever since. But just in the last few months, I’ve become more and more fascinated with the study of quantum physics. Quantum physics is literally the science of self-discovery… The study of our Source, this infinite intelligence that directs, governs, and expresses Itself through all of life. It’s essentially the science of the ‘Unseen’… how it works and operates under the veil of the ‘material world’.
So although there are many different ways and paths to discovering the Truth of who we are, I feel as though quantum physics is going to play an integral role in helping more and more people ‘wake up’ to their true nature. This is not about esoteric philosophy… This is a science that is pretty hard to deny!
So as I grow and learn more and more about quantum physics, I’d like to blog about it and share it here with YOU! I’m so excited to share this information because the more you learn about your own self at deeper and deeper levels, the more you’ll be able to literally ‘master’ this thing called life. You will become a true conscious creator of your own reality and realize more and more just how darn powerful YOU really are…
Imagine your life as this enormously powerful wave and you’re being asked to ride it. If you fight and resist the wave, it’ll be a lifelong struggle. If you just ‘fall victim’ to the wave, you’ll get wiped out. But if you learn to skillfully ride the wave, you’ll fall into alignment with life and experience the thrill, beauty, and majesty of our own existence. You’ll ‘get it’… Or what some say, you’ll be ‘self-realized’ or ‘enlightened’.
This just means that you know who you are. You’ve let go of that old lens you were looking through with all of those self-limiting beliefs and concepts that caused you to suffer and kept you from your highest potential… You start to perceive a deeper Truth about yourself and everyone and everything else.
I do have to warn you though… Quantum physics is a little nutty! As you travel farther and farther down the ‘rabbit hole’ you’ll discover a world that defies the laws of classical physics (the physics of the material world), that makes no sense to the logical mind, and is so baffling, you’ll probably never see the world the same again!
But that’s the best part! :) Because on the other side is where freedom lies…
So let’s take this journey together one step at a time. And today, we’ll just start with the ‘Quantum Field Theory’…
The Quantum Field Theory says that everything in the universe is made up of fluctuations of energy and information. So, essentially, this material world that we take to be so ‘solid’ is really, at it’s most elemental state, ‘non-physical’. The atom is not really solid at all, it is made up of a hierarchy of states of information and energy and can be broken down into protons, electrons, quarks, bozons, and then just impulses of energy and information.
So, let’s ponder this for a moment…
Even though the world feels and looks pretty darn solid and dense, it’s not. Everything is made up of waves of energy, but even more specifically, waves of potential energy. These ‘quantum wave functions’ actually contain within them the potential for anything physical to appear!
They are essentially waves of possibilities. And the energy and information that make-up these waves are the same ‘stuff’ that make-up our thoughts. (I’ll get into this in more detail in later posts.)
So as simply put as possible, we literally live in a ‘thought’ universe. And quantum physicists are now saying that it’s actually ‘thought’ that creates the physical world!
So who (or what) is actually ‘thinking’ these thoughts that birthed us all into existence??
Hehehe… Now I’ll ask you again, do you want to take the red pill or the blue pill?
