Title: Anarchy Rules yet nothing is Random
Post by: Eugene66 on November 24, 2009, 12:13:42 am
I scanned this page out ot Wayne Dyer's book. You'll see it when you believe it.

I love this page. smitten

  A few months ago I was reading a fascinating novel
called Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin. Toward the end
of the book, the author included a short chapter that was
completely separate from the story he was telling. I must
have read this chapter, `Nothing is Random,' fifty times
and I still had great difficulty in accepting it as I read it.

Today, I know it is true for me, and it is how I now see
this entire onesong. With the permission of the author and
the publisher, I reproduce it here

Nothing is random, nor will anything ever be, whether a long
string of perfectly blue days that begin and end in golden
dimness, the most seemingly chaotic political acts, the rise
of a great city, the crystalline structure of a gem that has
never seen the light, the distributions of fortune, what time
the milkman gets up, the position of the electron, or the
occurrence of one astonishingly frigid winter after another.

Even electrons, supposedly the paragons of unpredictability,
are tame and obsequious little creatures that rush around at
the speed of light, going precisely where they are supposed to
go. They make faint whistling sounds that when apprehended in
varying combinations are as pleasant as the wind flying through
a forest, and they do exactly as they are told. Of this, one can
be certain.

  And yet there is a wonderful anarchy, in that the milkman
chooses when to arise, the rat picks the tunnel into which he
will dive when the subway comes rushing down the track from
Borough Hall, and the snowflake will fall as it will. How can this
be? If nothing is random, and everything is predetermined, how
can there be free will?

The answer to that is simple. Nothing is
Predetermined; it is determined, or was determined, or will be
Determined. No matter, it all happened at once, in less than an
Instant, and time was invented because we cannot comprehend in
One glance the enormous and detailed canvas that we have been
Given - so we track it, in linear fashion, piece by piece.

Time,however can be easily overcome; not by chasing the light, but
By standing back far enough to see it all at once. The universe
is still and complete. Everything that ever was, is; everything that
ever will be, is - and so on, in all possible combinations, Though
in perceiving it we imagine that it is in motion, and unfinished,
it is quite finished and quite astonishingly beautiful.

In the end, or rather, as things really are, any event, no matter how small,
is intimately and sensibly tied to all others. All rivers run full to
the sea; those who are apart are brought together; the lost ones
are redeemed; the dead come back to life; the perfectly blue
days that have begun and ended in golden dimness continue,
immobile and accessible; and, when all is perceived in such a way
as to obviate time, justice becomes apparent not as something
that will be, but as something that is.

How radically different this point of view may be from that
which you likely have assumed over a lifetime. How could
everything be synchronized when it appears to the naked
eye that everything is happening in a random fashion? If
you want to begin to see how this all might be possible,
I suggest that you initiate a fascinating study of quantum
reality by reading Gary Zukav's The Dancing Wu Li masters
 and Fritjof Capra's The Tao of Physics. Both of these
books give an overview of the new physics and how `hard
scientific evidence' fits in with the metaphysics I have been
postulating: Here is a brief taste of The Dancing Wu Li

The astounding discovery awaiting newcomers to physics is
that the evidence gathered in the development of quantum
mechanics indicates that subatomic `particles' constantly appear
to be making decisions! More than that, the decisions they seem
to make are based on decisions made elsewhere. Subatomic
particles seem to know instantaneously what decisions are made
elsewhere, and elsewhere can be as far away as another galaxy
... the philosophical implications of quantum mechanics is that
all of the things in our universe (including us) that appear to
exist independently are actually parts of one all-encompassing
organic pattern, and that no parts of that pattern are ever really
separate from it or from each other

To me, this simply is the scientific world beginning to
catch up with all that spiritual masters have been relating
for centuries.

Oh I have te same problem. They call it samskaras.

My mind has a groove like an habitual thought pattern and I keep falling in there. I have to conciosly remind myself that it is not so anymore dammit!!

It works though. Gradually I find I don't have to remind myself to remember or think correctly.

The Divine parents have always taught of Divine Intention and that Free will is a function of ego to keep us from living in the flow of Light.
When we choose to ignore Divine Intention we create struggle as the two opposing energies pull against each other.

Living life from spirit means living life without ego in the knowing that we are forever guided by Light in all that we do.
Trusting in this knowing allows us to live within Divine Intention and life flows around us without struggle.

In every crossroad or decision I am brought in my life I always ask if it is Divine Intention for me in the way to go forward. I have found that if I always follow Divine Intention - even though I may have felt the desire to follow free will instead - I have been held in Light and guided in safety.

One major learning that helped me accept this restoration was one time when I was intending to travel to our capital city and I needed to be there at a certain time. As always I had asked if it was Divine Intention to travel to Sydney at the time but I got a no. I was so frustrated with the Light as we all needed to be in Sydney within a certain time. I asked again and again but continued to get a no. (This was the struggle I had created myself by not trusting in Divine Intention).
Eventually some 2 hours later I got the message that we could leave. As we travelled further down the freeway we came upon a fatal car accident that had claimed the life of 6 people. A car had crossed the centre line and the car travelling the same way we were going had no where to go. There were also quite a lot of other cars that had been involved in the accident.
When I saw this and did my time calculations I realised that if we had left when I wanted to leave we would have been in this very area when this accident happened.

My children and I blessed and thanked the Light for this guidance and my lesson on the knowing of the reason for Divine Intention began. Since this time so much more learning has been brought to me about this blessed energy that guides all Light.

As I have travelled further on my spiritual journey I have come to learn that my life is part of the whole - the oneness.
Everything I do and my choices affect the whole.
In this learning I am reminded of my need to be mindful of how my actions affect the oneness.

I try to live my life within the flow of Divine Intention and in this way I hope to contribute to the oneness and not take from it by creating struggle.
By living my life in the flow of Light, I have found a serenity and wholeness that free will had denied me.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful demonstration with us.

It gives you chills when you realize the universe just saved you from harm.

Now reading about what you say, you are a part of the whole and all you say and do impacts the whole. Like a fractal or a manbelbrot I also like to say that the universe is like a spiders web. No matter where you move it you move the whole in some way or another.

Just like the butterfly effect. I often wonder if superstitons were not born by people observing effects to certain events like a mirror breaking. Then as soon as they realize certain re occuring events they begin the superstition. I often wonder how much of ths is set in reality
