The Unified Field

You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking back. Trust that the dots will connect in time. Remember the Unified Field. Everything we experience emerges from it. We can charge the field with authentic effort. What arises from the field cannot be known, but we can trust in knowing that the one thing we have control over is what we put into it.

Don’t expect it to be a 1-to-1 ratio or even a 100-to-1 ratio. Just trust that something will result. The reward is the effort we put in.

What appears failures is feedback from the field. The field is objective. It will never be fair, just true. What emerges is never a problem. Problems are subjective and based on this misguided belief that we have control.

Separate yourself from the outcome and trust the process. What matters is that you put out into the world (and into the field) with intention.

With intention, you will move the ball forward. Without intention, you'll get what life gives you.

“Life punishes the vague wish and rewards the specific ask.” ― Timothy Ferriss

To me, this quote is all about the unified field. If you're vague, you get what life dishes out... and that's not always good. When you're specific, you tune into what matters and tune out what doesn't. What's your mission?

I first discovered this concept when I learned TM back in 2014.

The unified field is the source of everything thought. There's a collective shared unconsciousness that is the source of everything. It answer the question 'where do thoughts come from?'

David Lynch talks a lot about 'The ocean of vibrant consciousness' - the source of all matter. When you dive in TM, you 'experience an ocean of pure consciousness' which is the unified field. He expand on this in the video below.

Playing the Field

I'm currently reading Playing the Quantum Field by Brenda Anderson and it provides some practical ways we can tap the power of the field.

Whatever you put into the field resonates back. The greater the emotion, the greater the impact. So if I wake up feeling stressed out that I have too much to do, the field amplifies that effect.

If you tell yourself 'I want to be financially free,' the field will give you just that - the feeling that you WANT to be financially free.

It amplifies back exactly what you ask. So the distinction to grasp is that you must be specific with the outcome, not the desire for the outcome. Thinking instead 'I am financially free' will get you there, not thinking 'I want...'.

If you are feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, guess what? The field will amplify that back to you.

The solution is so easy, but runs counter to our conditioning.

When you find yourself in a whole, stop digging.

Stop. Breathe. Begin to think 'I've got everything under control. True, I have lots to do, but I have all the time I need as well. People will wait. And if they don't, that's not my problem...'

Almost instantly, I'm noticing a sense of calmness rush over me and I crack a smile. I dug the whole into this, but I can also easily step out of the whole I dug. I just forgot that the field amplifies what I am experiencing. Instead of throwing myself up against the wall, I can give myself a gentle back rub.
